Has the Mystery of Are You 23? Been Revealed?

For a while it seemed like there were as many theories to what was behind the mysterious Are You 23? buzz campaign as there were people theorizing.

Now the buzz all seems to be focusing on some semi-exclusive online club in which members get first access to various news, events and merchandise for a ‘modest’ annual fee. Only March 10 will know for sure, but until then, photos of these D23 pins have been making the rounds as of late.
