The Rolling Stones Tease ‘Big News’ With Newfangled App
The Rolling Stones have promised to reveal "big news" to the world shortly, and apparently they're going to do it via a new mobile device app named uView.
In a new Twitter post this morning, the band announced that they "have some big news coming up! Get involved by downloading the uView app & point your device at this," pointing to a picture of what appears to be a pair of animal eyes." So we did as instructed -- pointing our mobile phone at the picture on the computer screen -- and our big reward was to see the eyes blinking, along with a text message reading "keep your eyes peeled."
It's been common news for some time now that the Stones were rehearsing for what's expected to be a short tour in celebration of their 50th anniversary. So it's pretty easy to speculate this announcement could be tied to the location of those performances.
If you look closely, you'll see darker black rings around the eyes on this image. What's left of our grade school memories tells us that could make this animal a panda bear, which could mean that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and company are heading to China. Or, they could be Jack Black's co-stars in the animated film 'Kung Fu Panda 3.'
