I must agree with the people that say : "The best way to hide something is to hide it in plain site"...
As for throwing a tarp over it, you would still notice the general shape and that would intrigue alot more people.
As for the escort cars, that would be normal, as by the looks of it the payload is approx 4m wide (standard lowbeds being 2m55 wide). normaly you need
2 unmarked convoy cars (one for back and one for front) on main roads, and a police escort through populated areas. (it's a part of my Job)
I would be curious to know how many axles the lowbed had, to give an approximate idea of the weight of the payload (apparenty isn't very long) a 2
axle standard lowbed would do the job (which are approx 9m usable platform lenght in standard) but if the used a 3 axles (or upwards) that would mean
they needed the extra payload capacity (so that the payload weighed more than 20ton, which also means theres little chance they would make something
that heavy just for a movie...)
It was said to be an 18 wheeler, which is most commonly a 3 axle tractor unit with a 2 axle semi trailer (18 wheeler because it has 18tyres
alltogeather) but people just say 18wheeler to destingnate a common convoy truck...
I wouldn't think it's for the movie set of district 9 as the film is coming out in sept, I would imagine that the movie has been finished for quite
a time and almost ready to distribute.
Viral marketing maybe, but as apparently, the radio stations where called telling them to shut their gobs, it's all the contrary of viral marketing,
where the main aspect is to be talked about as much as possible... At the moment the information isn't circulating that well... a few websites and
Anyway just my opinion...
