This morning, an Eater Portland tipster discovered a flyer posted on a power pole in northwest Portland looking for a “stolen pig.” “Reward when found, no questions asked,” says the poster, looking for a pig that “answers ‘pig’”, loves “truffle and mushroom cake” and weighs around 600 pounds. The poster also includes a picture of the pig, a light brown pig that appears to be burrowing in the dirt.
The picture bulbs to be trimmed Promotional photos for the film pig, the upcoming Nicolas Cage flick in which a truffle hunter searches the streets of Portland for his missing truffle pig. This film is obviously the most anticipated film of the decade, if not of the century, because, and I cannot stress this enough, someone steals Nicolas Cage’s pig, which is also the title of the film. It is Taken, better because it’s a pig that is ultimately taken.
The flyer asks Portlander to send leads to the Instagram account @whohasmypig, an account with 44 followers and three posts from the pig in question, with campaigns like “Please share and help me find my stolen pig” or “It was stolen from me. Please DM with any information or advice. ” “Hey man, I saw your sign, I hope you find your pig,” one comment said.
Eater Portland reached out to both the Instagram account and the PR team at production company Neon to find answers to the obvious questions: Is this a guerrilla marketing ploy to get Portlanders interested in the film (when whether he needs help in this regard)? Is that an avid fan who takes things into their own hands? Did the owner of a pig lose a truffle pig at an inopportune time? This is an evolving story that is being updated.
