Cloverfield Clues and UnFiction Losers Are Wasting Their Time - Slusho Unrelated

Devin Faraci at Chud.com should have a nice, full inbox by the end of the evening. Seems he's got his panties in a bunch and has written a little article on the popular movie website about how the nerds at such forums as UnFiction are wasting their worthless time dissecting the Cloverfield movie.

Devin mentions Cloverfield Clues in the title but not in the article. I'mnot sure if he's targeting Dennis at Cloverfield Clues since it just happens to be that Dennis is a contributor to the popular UnFiction forum board.
"...I (Devin) got a lot of attention from the people playing the 'Alternate Reality Game' for Cloverfield - ie, the poor dumb bastards spending more time going through clues in the viral marketing than the viral marketers spent working on it. There were some particularly great threads on a site called unfiction where the dipshits who have defined their sad reality through this 'game' spent pages dissecting me and my trailer description. Of course it turns out I was right and these people still have Cheeto dust on their lips."
Devin also goes on to say that "Slusho" has nothing to do with "Cloverfield" and that it really is just another project of producer J.J. Abrams. Another article at the usually trustworthy Slash Film states the story which Devin bases this theory on.

I'm pretty sure SLUSHO! is related... Look at it this way:

Jamie Lascano appears on 1-18-08.com, the only confirmed Cloverfield-related site

Jamie has her own site, jamieandteddy.com

Jamie's overseas admirer is captured by Tagruato

Tagruato is the parent company of SLUSHO!

Unless Abrams is making his ENITRE viral marketing one colossal red herring, SLUSHO! is related.

Yeah, i think it's obvious of the connection. SLusho was handed out the day JJ announced the Cloverfield movie at Comic-con, so I'm not sure what source these dudes have but I can be safe in saying they have the wrong info

The issue is that Devin just desperately needs ppl to hear his opinion while he constantly bashes others for expressing there's.

Next thing you know he'll be making fun of fat people and socially inept folk.

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.

Click and hold the mouse to 'grab' an image and move it around. While holding the image, shake it back and forth quickly and it will flip over. Some images have writing on the back.

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.

T.I.D.O wave An activist group set out to bring to light all the damage Tagruato has done to the envirnoment.

Jamie and Teddy A minor character from the movie, Jamie popped up on a 1-18-08.com picture and the MySpace profiles for the movies characters before getting famous for her "Jamie and Teddy" website. The site is comprised of video journals from Jamie. The site is password protected but can be accessed by the password "jllovesth"
