Rocket Poppeteers Is Open For Business

The Rocket Poppeteers website has been updated. The site now allows you to register or enter the information that you received in the letter that was sent in the mail. If you did not send in the coupon that was found on the scariest thing website then you should select "New Recruit" which will take you through a registration process to enter your information. If you did send in the coupon and did receive your letter, click "Already A Candidate?" and enter the information you registered with (case sensitive). I did not receive a letter so I registered as a new recruit and did not hear the theme song, but it sounds like (based on the comments) if you enter the information from the letter you will be greeted with the Rocket Poppeteers Theme song (which Joshua was nice enough to upload here). And "Chainsaw ..." over at unfiction transcribed the lyrics to the song as well.

"Who will sieze the day
And make the country proud to say?
Rocket Poppeteers x2
Whose unbeatable taste
Will win the race for outer space?
Rocket Poppeteers x2
Who will answer the call
To battle the dark and save us all?
Rocket Poppeteers x2
Our galactic flavor sensations
Zooming across the nation!
Rocket Poppeteers x3"

It looks as if that's all you can do on the site at the moment. There's another button on the home page of the site indicating that there will be more stuff to do once it fully launches, but when that will happen is anyone's guess.

I'm still leaning towards the fact that the Rocket Poppeteers is going to be similar to the Slusho campaign that was run during Cloverfield, it's not going to help solve the mystery of what Super 8 is, but it will add a bit of depth to the viral. Basically just a fictional product that will make an appearance in the movie at some point, but have no real bearing on anything. I know Slusho kind of fit in with the Tagruato stuff from Cloverfield, but it really didn't play a huge role in anything and that's kind of what I see happening here, but that's just my theory... for now.

Thanks to everyone that commented and emailed me about this, things are starting to pick up so it looks like I'll have to be around a computer more in order to stay on top of things. I've also included a couple more images after the jump.

Update: It looks like those unfiction guys may have dug up some interesting information hidden around the Rocket Poppeteers site. twodten found what looks like a sitemap type file that lays out some of the possible different sections of the site.

And it looks like she may have also found some direct links to other areas of the site, however it appears that the site creators caught on and disabled those links because all I see now is text that says "Rocket Poppeteers", but Headman managed to snag some screenshots before they disappeared.
