New 'Cloverfield' Theory...

It's a slow weekend for 'Cloverfield' news and I've noticed a trend while surfing sites related to this cause that a lot of people have ideas about this movie and what the monster will be and they are almost always wrong. My favorites so far are a Voltron /Power Rangers or a 'LOST' movie.

Well, I figure the 1-18-08 Blog can be as wrong as the next dude so here goes my theory. It evolves from one of the 2 known credible sites, the Slusho homepage.

Take a closer look at their main picture, the Slusho container. Look familiar?

That's right. The Slusho container looks like Master Shake! And, that's not all. Check out this image from the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Movie that came out this year featuring the main characters in dramatic poses.

Take a look closer at Carl, seen here holding a sword with his right hand up high while his left arm is bent inwards, almost like it's ready to hold something. Maybe a large tablet?

...look familiar !?!

Looks suspiciously like little Lady Liberty. And, if you look at a map of the New York City area you'll notice Liberty Island, home to the statue that gets its head blown off in the trailer, is conveniently positioned to the SW of Manhattan island.

The head of Liberty is blown in a NE direction toward Manhattan. For an object of that magnitude to fly in the air all the way toward Broadway there must be a large force coming from behind the Statue of Liberty to create that chaos.

And what's behind that?

New Jersey, home of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force!

Maybe the next scene we'll be seeing is this:

Just remember that in mid January of this year members of the ATHF crew were placing suspicious looking devices around major cities to help promote their propaganda. The devastating effects of those 'glowing' bomb-like devices even caused Boston citizens to freak out and panic. Members of the Bomb-squad and swat teams had to be called in to save the day.

Hopefully, this coming January we won't be blindsided by the destructive actions of the ATHF!

P.S.-Hope you had a good laugh. Have a great weekend. 1-18-08 Blog

What is Cloverfield?

Welcome to 1-18-08 Project Cloverfield Blog.

Cloverfield is the J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias) produced monster flick directed by Matt Reeves. Get caught up on all the Cloverfield news including the viral world of Tagruato, TIDOwave, and Slusho!? And now Aladygma?

However, I love viral campaigns. Cloverfield taught me the fun of being involved with the viral world of movies and TV. That's why I'd like to branch out this site to cover some of the major viral campaigns as they are developing. Feel free to drop me a line or tip on any you find interesting.

Welcome to Cloverfield

Very few facts emerged from the viral campaign that was Cloverfield. It all started after a short, teaser trailer for Cloverfield appeared with the Transformers movie in early July of 2007. Since then, speculation surrounded what the title of the movie would be (Monstrous, Overnight, etc...) and what the monster really is and why it is tearing up New York City.

A few pictures and covert videos from the film showed up online and there were only a few core facts we knew of including the poster, the teaser trailer, and a few websites at 1-18-08, Tagruato Corp, and Slusho .

In November, the official full-length Cloverfield trailer was released that helped open up the story as well as cement the "Cloverfield" name for the movie. A short glimpse of the Cloverfield Monster was seen but for most people they still had little or no clue as to what it was.

The movie centered around five young New Yorkers throwing their friend a going-away party the night that a monster the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city. Told from the point of view of their video camera, the film is a document of their attempt to survive the most surreal, horrifying event of their lives. Cloverfield opened the weekend of 1-18-08 and set box office records for a movie in January with a monster take of over $40M.

Slusho This is the Japanese frozen drink made from a secret ingredient gathered from the bottom of the ocean. Slusho gives you a kick and makes you extremely happy. Prior to 1-18-08 Slusho was not sold in the US. However, recent FDA approval gave Slusho clearance to come to the states. Rob Hawkins, the lead character, was recently promoted to vice-president of Slusho and was on his way to Japan the night of the attack. Slusho is owned by the Tagruato Corp. of Japan. Slusho also first made an appearance on J.J. Abrams Alias during a scene where characters buy the drink at a store.

Tagruato This ficticious Japanese company is the parent company of Slusho as well as the Yoshida Medical Research, Bold Futura, and ParafFUN! Wax Distributors. Besides drilling the oceans for Slusho ingredients, Tagruato builds everything from space satellites to medical gear.
