Who is Keyser Soze?

I am sure that once upon a time, before the movie was released, I saw a teaser poster for the Usual Suspects that simply said "Who is Keyser Soze?". In my minds eye I want to say the poster was all black, but I may be making that part up, It could have had the lineup from the final poster. Anyone remember this poster?

I seem to remember that too, but it doesn't look like it was a theatrical version of the poster. Wikipedia says:

The studio decided to promote the character's name and two weeks before the film debuted in theaters, "Who is Keyser Söze?" posters appeared at bus stops and TV spots told people how to say the character's name.

I don't remember them. By any chance are you recalling this after seeing posters up that say, "Who is Salt?" I saw one yesterday and had a similar flashback (as I do every time I see a new "Who is..." film poster) to what I think was the first film campaign to do this: Darkman.

There were actually posters on buses with the question, confirmed by the introduction to the published script (Google Books search).
