There's apparently a colon in there. I just looked up what the secret is. It's pretty dumb.
The secret to colon health? That actually sounds pretty important

The most popular review on letterboxd explains pretty clearly what the movie is about:
In my attempt to make David Lynch sick by thinking mean thoughts about him landed me in the hospital due to a fairly damaging seizure. I was in the hospital for 3 days only thinking a happy thoughts about me and stealing any sort of medical equipment I could find and I have about two bags full of medical equipment now. Tonight I am back home and I will hook up all of the hospital tools and start thinking negative thoughts about David Lynch again. The 3 days should have rested me and tonight I will use these heartbeat monitors and toilet things to have extreme negative energy.

They should have added another 16 on the right side to balance things out.

Looks exactly like every deodorant ad I’ve seen on the subway

Yeah ... even that tag line reeks of fragrance ad.

Both of these covers might be custom jobs, since there's no official announcements for either yet, just rumors from very reliable (apparently) sources.

There has been enough great artwork done for Drive, within the first year or two post-release alone, for no one to ever need to go shopping for a new design. This may actually be the only bad one I’ve seen. I’m convinced there is some kind of blind dart-throwing Wolf of Wall Street gag among execs to result in these picks- nobody who literally gets paid to make decisions on advertising can have this poor taste, can they?

I think if you took away the Bakshied Gosling it is a good cover.

I don’t see munch wrong with it, other than the fact that it apparently says Collectible Steelbook directly on said steelbook.

It’s kind of a funny idea (though more than a little well-worn already), but I was under the impression the film wasn’t exactly a barrel of laffs

Here's the actual cover. Better but much worse than the Blu-ray cover since the heads are a little too big for their bodies

I seem to remember there were some good candidates for this on the fake Criterion cover thread.

That is genuinely one of the worst things I have ever seen, especially when the context is considered.

Not a cover, but Roger Waters: Us + Them is a very lightweight cardboard envelope, the size of a postcard. I saw it while at a record store recently and was shocked at just how simple it was.
