Bungie’s Keep it Clean trailer has instantly sparked web-wide analysis, with sites digging through it frame by frame for clues as to what the game may be.

The Xbox Live version of the movie has confirmed that the new Bungie product is a Halo 3 add-on, proclaiming: “High action and deep mystery await players in this new Halo 3 campaign experience. Prepare to drop!” More on Joystiq.

X3F‘s spotted a date in there as well. January 6, 2009 is clearly included on one of the movie’s frames. See through the link.

Lastly – and this was picked up almost immediately – three frames in the video carry the message, “Maddie, where are you?”

Debate’s kicking off as to whether this is a direct reference to the Madeline McCann disappearance, but you can bet the UK press is going to have an absolute field day with that. Could be highly misjudged, if we know the UK press. See GamesRadar.
