Montauk Monster Rumors

[Edit: Since some people can’t read and like to jump to conclusions about my thoughts (without reading my other posts on the Montauk Monster I might add) I’d just like to say that I don’t whole-heartedly believe all of this. I’m just stating some interesting thoughts and possibilities about the matter.]

So there are a lot of rumors going around that Monty is just part of a big viral marketing campaign. I read an article on www.montauk-monster.com describing how they examined the video with the 3 girls talking to Plum Tv. Anyways Nicky (The owner of montauk-monster.com) seems to think that it has something to do with the Cloverfield sequel. I think that this is semi-viable but it seems like it’s been too long. I would’ve thought that if it was a viral marketing scheme, a few days after it was released there would be teasers on tv or on the internet somewhere easily accessible. There could’ve even been a camcorder (or whatever they’re going to have the 2nd point of view be in the Cloverfield sequel) left with the creature. It all seems very fishy to me but the original Cloverfield had a huge amount of viral marketing. So maybe this is just them building up the excitement very early.

But there is good news. A replica of the Montauk Monster is now available on eBay. lol it’s about time! I’ve been waiting to buy my very own Monty T-shirt but nobody’s selling them. Maybe they respect him too much to put him on a T-shirt but I doubt it considering the spoof pictures that have been made using photoshop.

Just look at him, isn’t he cute? lol the winning bidder even has the option of adding more blood to him. How fun 😉

Montauk Monster Update

August 2, 2008 at 7:26 pm (Random) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

A new picture of the Montauk monster was released on Friday. This new picture makes it seem like the 2nd picture takers rolled over the creature. Also, the legs seem to have been unbound by that small leather strap. This picture seems a little shady already because of the missing strap.

There are some things that do make a lot of sense about this picture though. The new picture definitely makes it look like a bloated, decomposed dog. On the underside where it was laying against the sand it’s not as dark seeing as how it was out of the sun. It also still has some fur on this side. There are 2 flies more visibly shown on this picture giving proof to its actual size being around that of a dog.

The Gawker and I are still not convinced along with many other people. A new interview with the 3 girls that were the “first” picture takers is also out. They show Plum’s Nick Leighton their camera with the picture in it and also the 2nd angle shot which is different than the rolled over pictures (That’s 5 pictures now including the new 3). The face looks different in these new pictures as well if you ask me. Nick Leighton also reveals that they’ve checked with several scientists who all think it’s neither a dog nor a raccoon (Still can’t believe you said it was a raccoon Jeff…). Anyways you can watch the interview for yourself and see what you think about it (And notice the dumb girls who supposedly took the pictures).

Apparently someone deemed it necessary to have a wikipedia on what turtles eat. This turtle is super cute though. NOM NOM NOM
