Official 2009 ARG Clue and Poster Talk (No OT Talk)

Postby mkskippy24 on Fri Oct 30, 2009 6:11 pm

Hey YALL!

I've never started a topic thread... so hear goes.

The goal here, is to streamline our ideas and clues about the 2009 ARG-Viral Marketing Campaign. IF you choose to post here, it is to be about ideas revolving around clues, poster reveals, the artists, and the posters themselves.

Please keep the OT discussion in another thread or here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13728 (Chunky Ham Forum) where everyone is welcome and OT discussion is encouraged!

And i will do my best to transfer information from the above mentioned thread to this one.... so everyone can stay simply in the know!! :w00t: This thread follows the information and events of the Damon Carlton and a Polar Bear website. As new frames open, they will be added to the top of the page, at this point... starting with Frame #13.

-- Merged Double Post --

Ok... so i'll be first.

Anyone want to take a guess as to when we are gonna get our first clue??

I first thought, it would be quick... like tonight or tomorrow night. But then i realized, with Halloween, and the changing of the clocks.... I don't think we're gonna get a clue til sometime next week.

My guess is that the next reveal will be early week, Monday or Tuesday. So i'm guessing it's gonna be til next Wed at the earliest that we get a clue... unless they go with giving us a clue every other day instead of every day.

But if we can't ARG together, we're going to die alone.

I think here the line we should pay particular attention to is: We know how much collectors like having their things in SUPER condition.

And even further examining the clue... i think the word SUPER here is the key.....

SO get your ideas flowing.

Is there a way to get this thread stickied at the top of the board list?

I don't know about Super, but the obvious connections are:

Superman
Super Bowl (waaaay too early, though)
Super Nintendo? Hahaha
Superdome
Supertramp
...and my creativity is exhausted for now.

Just found this during a Wikipedia search of the term "Super". Most likely purely coincidental, as a lot of research has been during this ARG, but...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teller%27s_%22Super%22_bomb#Teller.27s_.22Super.22 Makes me think of Jughead.

Anyone else notice the missing letter in the first-order letter? It's minus an O the first time they type it- DamonCarltonAndAPlarBear.com

So my guess like some others i've seen is that it's a Comic book store/super hero related...could it be the NY FP, they did say in Glasgow there would be a something happening in NY store, they just didn't say when!!!

Mandy I completely understand where you are coming from. I've had to be reeled back in quite a few times from my LOST obsession. Family & friends actually tried to set up an intervention not long ago...in a joking way of course. :PP It's the price we all pay for such a loooooong hiatus me thinks :hmm: Do what you need to do and know that we are always with you in spirit. You will be missed but the times that you are able to share with us all will be that more rewarding on both ends :D

Congrats to Congested. Dude...that is so awesome. I'm thinking that SUPER is definetly the first part of the clue but if you add the next word condition...SUPER CONDITION...makes me think of a gym or health food store perhaps??
But the NY FB is a good guess too :thumbsup: and probably more along the lines their heading. I seem to be more wrong than right when it comes to sleuthing the clues :(



Putting some of our thought about clues here so they don't get lost in the fray of chit chat..... :D

I seem to recall a field for discount code on the order form for the posters.

Maybe the capital letter "S" in Super and missing "O" in the web address (and other typos along the way) have been an underlying code pointing to a discount code? The dimmed number 4 in the love triangle poster and the extra number 5 on the dharma van might point towards toward some sort of code too. Just something I was thinking about this morning. It would be great if this were the case....perhaps leading to free poster(s) during the "buy now". Yeah....well....a girl can dream, can't she? :)

I think someone else may have mentioned something similar...I'm starting to wonder if we should take a closer look at these. The only problem is.....who wants to take the extra 3-5 seconds it would take to enter a "suspect" code?

First thing I noticed is that there are 7 holes in the "7".



by brothaofdes on Mon Nov 02, 2009 3:22 pm

Big red "7", reveal on the 7th? but why red?



by bygnerd on Mon Nov 02, 2009 3:23 pm

Also, there is a bar in Austin TX called Red 7. Seems unlikely tho since there was already a TX reveal.

It has to be super7 because of the letter hint about "having their things in SUPER condition."

I would even guess that with the 7 holes, the reveal will be this Saturday, the 7th.

I think batman was the first to make the move from spandex to latex. And collectible toys are often made from latex too.


Edited to add: check the super7 blog about a month and a half back to read about their new store opening in FL...
posted link on lostarg, but off to another meeting..

Actually, if you blow the photo up, it appears there are 9 holes. Thank Charter321 over at LostARGs for that one! :thumbsup:

I am charter321! Yes, there are 9 holes. Two of them are really really tiny. I put it on my big tv and I noticed them. So, what could 9 holes means?

I think the holes are from using MSPaint to make the number, using the paint brush ap to fill things in leaves little holes or spaces like that, it is the same with the R and H from #9. i don't think the holes are a clue.

The Super clue and the NY forbidden planet clue make me think that there is a comicbook that came out at the same time? why would they give out backer boards and no comic?

9 loops, or 9 loopholes
