Teen WolfContinuing its trend of innovative social promotion ahead of new seasons, MTV’s “Teen Wolf” sent fans on a weekend scavenger hunt to unlock the trailer to the upcoming fourth season.

The random words pertained to storylines in the fourth season, and were hidden in past social media platform posts. Fans had to put the 16 words in the correct order on the whoisthebenefactor.com.

Fans took to the challenge, unlocking the trailer in less than 24 hours.

This resulted in fans finding out the premiere date, and getting to see a scene from the premiere episode.
