A chat with Christian Grey

The Facebook Messenger bot, first noticed by Digital Spy, will talk dirty with fans of the films, asking for trust and eventually unveiling his Red Room, where all the action goes down.

Based on E.L. James' character and tying in with the launch of 50 Shades Darker, the bot is capable of heated conversations with Facebook users.

The Drum took a run at Christian to test his chat, here's how that went.

The bot culminates just some activity around the release of 50 Shades Darker. Universal Pictures ran a 360 video ad campaign across the web for the movie, and it went into detail about the success of the drive with The Drum.

Additionally, We Are Social rhetorically handled the social media for Christian Grey as part of a recurring series.
