Weezer wanted a new approach to market their then-upcoming album. The web app is implemented to determine if a real human is accessing the page. Different tests need to be passed by the user to access the end of the puzzle, i.e., the album art and link to pre-order the album.
Weezer’s way of announcing the album and distributing resources is truly one-of-a-kind. We implemented the app exactly the way they wanted it to be. The user starts with an image-based captcha, moves on to another and another captcha, and finally enters the email upon passing the previous one.
