J.J. Abrams SUPER 8 Movie Viral Marketing Has Begun

I'm amazed by the way some people think. I've seen the new J.J. Abrams / Steven Speilberg Super 8 trailer a few times now and of course I noticed a few little details in it, but I would have never thought to go through it and actually try to find anything hidden, or look for something that may open the doors to some other information that will open more doors to other things... scary things? Like the scariest thing I ever saw? Because that is exactly what this new trailer has led us to.

The first thing I want to show you is this awesome creepy screenshot that comes from the trailer that perhaps many of you missed. It pops up right before the letters pass over the camera lens at the end of the trailer. This was taken by Carlton Halpert. It looks like a kids face? Or some kind of humanoid Alien? You tell me.

I don't know if you noticed in the trailer or not but some letters flash through the lens of the film camera. There are some pretty hardcore geeks over at the unfiction forum that took screen shots of each letter that flashed up on screen. See below:

The above screenshot spells out... The Scariest Thing I Ever Saw.

So what does one do when they find a phrase like that in a trailer? Look it up on the internet thats what! Which leads us to... thescariestthingieversaw.com. And here's what we get, an old school 1970's  PDP-11 16-bit microcomputer display.  

You can play around on the site and see what happens, but not much. If you try to print all pages you get this message:

Stop posting publicly. I can answer your questions.
I have proof.

But if you continue to follow all the prompts on the computer you end up at a countdown screen. Of course someone on the unfiction website took the time to actually calculate where the countdown will end. 

The number ticks every 5 seconds. 134640 parts. Start at 6000 so subtract those 6000 from the total: 128640. Times that by 5, you get 643,200 seconds until the countdown ends. Divide that by 60, 10720 minutes. Divide THAT by 60, get 179 hours. Which is just around 7 1/2 days. So, probably around Noon on the 15th?

So what happens on May 15th? Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe a trailer? Image? more viral stuff to play with? 

If you look at the screenshot above there is a name that appears in the information... D, Morris. Super8news did some research on the name and if it had any relation to Area 51 or UFO's. They came up with the following information for a Dan Morris:

Dan Morris is a retired Air Force career Master Sergeant who was involved in the extraterrestrial projects for many years. After leaving the Air Force, he was recruited into the super-secret National Reconnaissance Organization, or NRO, during which time he worked specifically on extraterrestrial-connected operations. He had a cosmic top-secret clearance (38 levels above top secret) which, he states, no U.S. president, to his knowledge, has ever held. In his testimony, he talks of assassinations committed by the NSA; he tells how our military deliberately caused the 1947 ET craft crashes near Roswell, and captured one of the ETs, which they kept at Los Alamos for 3 years, until he died. He talks about the intelligence teams that were charged with intimidating, discrediting, and even eliminating witnesses to ET/UFO events. He talks about Germany’s re-engineering of UFOs, even prior to WWII. He talks about our current energy crisis — and the fact that we haven’t needed fossil fuels since the 1940s, when free energy technologies were developed — but have been kept from humanity. This is the real reason for the secrecy of the ET/UFO subject. “What the people in power right now don’t want us to know is that this free energy is available to everybody.” In conclusion, he warns against the weaponization of space and the shooting down of ET craft — this could force them to retaliate, and that would be our destruction.

There's a lot of fun and cool information to play around with and speculate about here, and I'm sure this is only the beginning. I'm looking forward to finding out more about this movie. What do you all think of this stuff?
