• Where is my Gnome? was a series of viral marketing ads used
by Travelocity in early 2004 created by the creative agency
• The ads consisted of a man named "Bill" looking for his garden
gnome. On January 3, the Boston Herald and the Boston Globe
had these ads on their publication. The ads were inspired by
the travelling gnome prank. Since the initiation of the ad
campaign, the "Roaming Gnome" has become the de facto
mascot of Travelocity.
• The concept of the roaming gnome and his international

• A landlocked country surrounded only by other landlocked countries
may be called a "doubly landlocked" country. A person in such a

• There are only two such countries in the world. X and Uzbekistan.
• There were no doubly landlocked countries in the world from the
Unification of Germany in 1871 until the end of World War I. This is
because Uzbekistan was part of the Russian Empire, and thus part of
a country that was not landlocked; while X bordered AustriaHungary, a country which had an Adriatic coast until it was dissolved
in 1918. Upon the dissolution of Austria-Hungary X became a doubly
landlocked country. There were again no doubly landlocked
countries from 1938 until the end of World War II, as Nazi Germany
had incorporated Austria, which meant that X bordered a country
with a coast. After World War II Austria regained its independence
and X became doubly landlocked once more.

reads as under:
• "With reference to the deputation of certain representatives of the X, who
met the Prime Minister on the 25 January 1950, I am desired to say that
there is no cause whatever for the Xs to have any apprehensions regarding
the future of their religion and community….It is clear therefore, there is no
reason for thinking that X are considered to be Hindus. It is true that Xs in
some ways closely linked to Hindus and have many customs in common,
but there can be no doubt that they are a distinct religious community and
constitution does not in any way affect this well recognized position.”
• Dr. S Radhakrishnan writes,
• “The Xs claim a great antiquity for their religion. Their earliest prophet was
Rishabhdeva. Who is mentioned even in the Vishnu and Bhagawat Puranas
as belonging to a very remote past. In the earliest Brahmanic literature are
found traces of the existence of a religious Order.”

Director: “It’s not about trying to figure out what is accurate and

we use music to convey the story.”
Interviewer: “There was also a loud explosion in the trailer.”
Director: “Yes, but that’s just the trailer. I honour silence. The only
sound you hear in space in the film is if, say, one of the characters
is using a drill. X’s character would hear the drill through the
vibrations through her hand. But vibration itself doesn’t transmit
in space—you can only hear what our characters are interacting
with. I thought about keeping everything in absolute silence. And
then I realized I was just going to annoy the audience.”
