It looks like the Rocket Poppeteers have touched down in San Diego for the weekend to pay a visit to all of the Comic-Con goers. As many of you have pointed out in the comments, the Rocket Poppeteers website has been updated recently with a link to a twitter page. The first tweet went out 18 hours ago asking if you can find them before they find you, which was then followed up by instructions to bring your Rocket Poppeteers letter to the truck for a special surprise. It also looks like if you go to the truck and sing the theme song you get a t-shirt. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you would also get a t-shirt if you brought your letter from the Rocket Poppeteers. I can't imagine too many people were carrying around their letters so the theme song might be another way to give out the shirts. They are also giving away Super Speedflier Fleet popsicles.

There are also a few pictures posted on the twitpic account of the truck surrounded by people. So if you're out in San Diego right now, let us know if you find the truck and give them your letter. And I suggest following the Twitter account as I'm sure it'll be getting updated a lot more in the future.

Thanks again to those of you that left this info in the comments (Xeno and TheDoctor).

    maybe this is a clue?

  7. 3kko says:

    @Coco
    It’s not a clue, the Poppeteers truck is driving around San Diego in the area near Comic-Con. I didn’t have my letter on me for the truck, but I did try the popsicles. Fruity!

  8. I know it is i just thought there might be a clue but once again I get replied something different.

  9. myfingerstinks says:

    wow. they must be spending millions on the arg alone!

  10. poopman says:

    some a hole problably went up to the truck and said something like;
    “hey! you guysh are part of the shuper ate viral arent you?

  11. Rick says:

    I want the shirt and the popsicle. 🙁

  12. Vic227 says:

    Crap i dont live anywhere in san diego lets alone that state. -__- but anyways does anyone know that theme song? If they dont, do you think it has to do with the sound file we got? (Just an idea, idk if the truck was playing their theme song when going around)

  13. e0w pHf0uwZ says:

    Oh myy.. I ssooooo badly want one of those “sweet ice cream!” (you do know that I *do* mean the ice cream and not the girls, right? :P)

  14. rey says:

    Oh, please happen at the NY comic-con too. I really want to see this stuff… What’s the Rocket Poppeteers song?

  15. Mason says:

    “Look for these FOUR additional Fleets in your grocer’s Freezer ”

    does this mean that they’ll be coming to grocery stores all around the country?

  16. Sinamatik says:

    damn!.. i wasn’t gonna go this year but oh well, i’ll cruise down tomorrow or sunday

  17. Damian says:

    @Mason

    That’s what I was thinking! That would be so cool. When the Cloverfield viral went on I was hoping that Slusho! would be produced and sold at like convenience stores and such. Never happened unfortunately. But it’s possible. I would buy them.

    But it’s sucks to live in Arizona and not have tickets to Comic Con. I miss everything. CRAP!

  18. Jeff says:

    Do you think they’ll sell the shirts on the website once it launches?

    I hope so. I’ll buy two or three!

  19. Vic227 says:

    Has anybody tried twittering the number of stars answer? And i have a feeling when someone hands their letter in to the truck they need the answer too. Just ideas i could be wrong

  20. @Vic227 I thought of emailing or even mailing them but twittering I guess is more easier because they’ll reply quickly.

  21. Penguin says:

    maybe they have set up a youtube page with a commercial on it that has the theme song

  22. @Penguin
    …maybe even a FB Page and other social network site! BTW: I searched on youtube and all i found was vids of the rocket poppeteers truck at comic con

  23. damianz says:

    My broter and i brought our letters. Our secret surprise was quite awesome. And we will wear it with great pride. We are the only ones to have done this so far.

  24. damianz says:

  26. Will says:

    Check the poppeteers site! It says to check back shortly to join the rocket poppeteers!!!

  27. Mason says:

    Real Spacemen Love Rocket Poppeteers?
    could that be the theme song??

  28. Civ721 says:

    Anyone thinking that the sound file has to do with the theme song? Just an idea

  29. Mason says:

    @Will
    where does it say that? mine just has the same Temporarily Down picture..

  30. Will says:

    @Mason

    For a bit it said Check back shortly to become a rocket poppeteer! it doesnt now, but it used to, i swear!

  31. Will says:

    Its back up 😀

  32. Will says:

    Every once-in-a-while the message dissappears from the site, but it reappears soon after!

  33. @Will not saying you’re lying but at least save the image or something.

  34. Now this is something interesting…

    As many of you know, if you search Super 8 on apple.com it says In theaters January 1 1970. Now if you google that, the first thing you get is Unix Time from Wikipedia, when the Big Bang occured according to a Unix computer system. This date is when the first Unix computer was made operable. If you find a file that was from Wed Dec 31, 1969 on your Linux PC, you can be sure that the date on that file got knackered.

    On on the Unix Time article on wiki it says types of Unix Times so I converted 16180339, which was something about the Golden Ratio, and I got 7/7/70. I remember someone talking about something happening on the 7th because of a picture? Plus, isn’t this Big Bang related to Space and isn’t space related to Rocket Poppeteers?

  35. Vic227 says:

    So they left san diego. Where do you think theyll go next? If they go somewhere.

  36. @Vic227 I think there next destination is OUTER SPACE!! 😀

  37. Vic227 says:

    @joshua lmao that makes sense but besides there!

  38. Troy "Wings" Jackson says:

    Will is right! I’ve seen the same thing on the rocket poppeteers website. I’ve a copy on my phone but will try to upload that soon

  39. Will says:

    @Troy

    Thanks dude! I didn’t upload it ‘cuz I was a bit lazy to figure out where I would upload it ^_^”

    interesting…

  43. bshaw says:

  44. antonio says:

    could the license plate mean anything?

  45. @Sinamatik @bshaw
    lol you just made my day…

  46. […] this leads to anything or starts up the next phase of the viral, but you can check out articles on Super 8 News and MovieViral for details on the truck. They’ve even been keeping track of things like the […]

  47. C9URK says:

    This is probs a stupid question but what is the theme tune? and where can I find it?

  48. JM6687 says:

    I more interested to know what the people who had there letters received from the truck.
