'Revolution' makes use of Super Bowl blackout

Art met real life Sunday as the power went out at Louisiana’s Superdome during the Super Bowl.


After the power went out a couple of minutes into the third quarter at the big game, many people voiced conspiracy theories on Twitter. NBC’s post- apocalyptic drama “Revolution” was involved in one of those theories.

First came a tweet from the “Revolution” official Twitter account saying "Just a taste of what’s to come on March 25. #LightsOut #Revolution," at 6:45 p.m. PT, an hour after power was first lost.

Another tweet with a link leading to an image of a necklace integral to unlocking the show’s mystery appeared: "If only the stadium had one of these... #RevolutionMarch25."

"This is just like "Revolution". I wonder when the vines start growing,” Mike Shoemaker, “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” producer, tweeted.

“NBC and JJ Abrams just ‘Revolution’ photobombed the Superbowl,” Julie Plec, “The Vampire Diaries, said.

“Revoltuion” is set in a world without electricity and is in the midst of a 20- episode first season. The show stars Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth and David Lyons.

“Revolution” airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. ET.
