Along with the Lost Season 4 finale, we saw a commercial that was unlike any that had been shown since the days of The Hanso Foundation. It was a recruiting video for Octagon Global Recruiting, seeking volunteers "on behalf of the Dharma Initiative". Listening carefully to the commercial, you'll find that these are definitely volunteer - unpaid - positions.
I caught it the first time through, but had to listen again before I really realized what was happening. of course, the Dharma logo is an octagon, and the ABC tagline at the bottom is something of a giveaway. Then there is the fact that the national recruitment drive will commence in San Diego from July 24-27, 2008 - dates that conicide with Comic-Con. Obvoiusly, something is up here. But what?
