I just got back from seeing "Transformers" and there are no real links to the chad drone. The only thing that I saw that would suggest a link is the transformers language. It looked similiar to that of the symbols on the wing. Other then that there was nothing else. So I think its safe to the say the whole viral marketing scheme is a no go.
Surprising enough, it's one of the best films I have seen in a long time.

Thanks for the info,
Springer beat ya buy a little bit
Link to the post

As I asked in the other place think it might have something to do with
Halo 3 or Halo wars?
Maybe a new half-life?
The new doom that will never come out?

This is more for the people who dont want to dig thru 70 odd pages of posts
. I really do not see how its a viral marketing scheme any way you look at it.

I'm leaning to marketing till I can see more picts and more accounts

One of the picts the bottom of it reminds me of the a key I saw in a movie
"mirror mask" the shape of the whole thing not the writing that is
but of course its not for that

thats why i'm leaning to video game ads

Micro$oft did a good job with halo 2

what about the blairwitch they had good ads for that, A few of my stepsons friends kept saying it was real until they were blue in the face. Till they saw it and watched the credits lol

Blairwitch project was a lot different then this thing. Ive read that novel of a thread about the drone, I just don't see it having any connection to a game or a movie coming out. Halo 3 is 5 months or more away from release. I just read an article on it with screenshots that also had info on new features vechicles and weapons in it and there's nothing the resembles this drone. Personally I am not as skeptical as all the rest of the people on here who want to shout "BS! it's a cgi hoax.

5 months away isn't that far to hype something up
Heck what about the Halo movie they are making, can be from that as well.

Look how long the transformer movie was hyped up 2yrs on the internet and not sure on tv cause I don't watch it.

My point was with Blairwitch was marketing will do wonders with peoples minds.

I'm not into the BS! BS! I'm trying to keep an open mind about it I'm just mentioning possibilities.

I wonder why more people who have seen this come forward.

If this vessel is real will there be more?

Why isn't this covered by the main media?

Brings many questions that I'm willing to hear all points of view. And my questions just happen to be around hyped up ads. It is possible, anything is possible.

Anything is possible no doubt about that one. Yes this could be related to some movie or game but there just isnt enough supporting evidence right now. We have a few sightings, this drone thing, now this cavat site and thats it. I would think that if this were viral there would be a few more things that would lead to something. This is all dead ends.

You pro-viral theorist are getting ridiculous now.

A couple of weeks age you where all swearing -its OBVIOUSLY an hoax, whoever doesnt see it is a IDIOT- following the discovery of the "beastmaster" cartoon sequence wich showed something remotely similar to the drone.

Springer's conclusions based on that video alone where nothing short of CATEGORICAL, and many people followed him.

Now that the transformer viral is gone, you dare putting forward the halo-viral theory?? And then? when even halo will come public whats next? cameron "avatar" movie? "mythbusters" viral? superbowl?

There is not a single element hinting at this as a viral or marketing scheme, no one.
Lets debate if its an HOAX or not, but dismissing again and again the story as "obviously a viral" its just silly at this point.

The transformers viral campaign made sense to me at first, but it never really seemed to materialize. The people who supposedly would have made the Transformers hoax didn't inform us about what it was, we just happened to "guess" that on our own. If I was creating a viral marketing ad for my own product, I would be sure to give the public a way to connect the hoax to my product. The Transformers guys obviously never did that, so I don't know why everyone thought it was a viral ad campaign for Transformers out of nowhere.

It was a nice theory and everything, but now that we know there are no drones in the movie, and they haven't officially told us that the drones were a viral campaign, it is safe to say that it has nothing to do with Transformers.

I still think it's one big CGI hoax though. You don't have to be on the Transformers movie team to be a top notch CGI artist...

Well lets hear your 2 cents on it. Since no one else can put forth theirs.
Bottom line is no one and I mean NO ONE on here knows what these things are or there purpose. All we have is speculations be it a viral theory hyping a game or a movie or cgi hoax or *shock* the real deal. You might as well say us "pro UFO theorists are getting ridiculous" while your at it. The only thing I saw in the entire transformers movie that was anything similar to the drone is the Transformers language. The characters looked similar but thats it. The only time you ever even see the language is a handful of scenes. The most prominent is when they subtitle the language from transformer to english.

ok so no drone link , did the movie kick ass ? thats what I want to know , I cant wait for this

As organelle had very well put in another thread, my interest in the "drone" case stems mainly from my interest in the study of human logic, decision-making and in general in all those mind process aimed at discovering the "truth".

The particular example of the chad drone can very well be an hoax. In fact im 99% sure it is. But i lack any irrefutable proof of that, and that's what id like to see or even provide myself!

By the way, even given an excedingly small probability that this is the real deal, when factored by the huge impact such a news would have on the entire humanity, even a small 1% or heck even 0.1% probability of truth makes the whole thing pretty interesting

As i already said, to me too those images "feel" like cgi. And the whole story "looks like" an hoax, given the very low technical level of the docs, and the completely implausible witnesses stories.

What i would STRIVE FOR is some very technical and detailed analisys of the photo. I would like that some expert come here with pixel-by-pixel enlargements of the images and say -look his combination of pixel? is identical to this other one in this obviously cgi generated image!- And thereby prove that some precise, unmistakable even for the non experts, quantitative aspect of the images lead to them being computer generated.

But making decisions over "similiarities" or "feelings" is just poor reasoning for me. And i like rigourous thinking in everything i do, even debating about silly ufos

Well leo start diggin then instead of slamming everyone else's thoughts on it. There's a thought.

posted on Jul, 3 2007 @ 07:12 AM
I'm a fan of halo and transformers and I don't see any link. I just don't see how it could promote those franchises. If it is viral marketing, I don't think it's working. Also.. those 2 franchises are big enough to not need viral marketing to get people to spend money.

I don't think this is a marketing ploy.

First of all who is this targeted at? Look at the source. If i'm not mistaken, and i'm not, the original "Chad Pictures" were posted on the C2C website a few weeks ago. I find it hard to belive that Microsoft is trying to garner interest in Halo 3 from middle aged "UFO Buffs" and "Conspiracy Theorist".

Secondly if one has any interest in gaming at all, then they know that Halo has thousands of fans eagerly awaiting it's release. It'll be one of those waiting in line at midnight kinda' things (with media coverage).

My question is. Early on JRitzman was of the opinion that these where CGI and surely Springer was aware of that opinion. Inasmuch as Springer has an "in" over at C2C did he convey this opinion to to Lex or George, and if so what was their response? And did they offer any reason as to why C2C and L. Howe where going to continue to push the issue?
