This modern take on a classic fairy tale speaks volumes about where we are as a society. The story begins with the murder of the infamous Big Bad Wolf. The tale incorporates the way we take in media today. Starting with a headline in the Guardian, reports online, announcements and subsequent discussions on Twitter, and then the inevitable YouTube videos, complete with crude computer-generated reenactments and even a revelation of new evidence that shows the Wolf suffers from asthma.
I love the use of a timeless tale with a modern twist which demonstrates how we consume and interact with a good story. The best part of this story is that it positioned the The Guardian as willing partner in the quest to find the truth.
