Frenzied Waters?

Jul. 8, 2009by: Mike Sampson

What is frenziedwaters.com? That's the question I have after receiving a mysterious package in the mail today; one that included my own obituary.

I opened the box to reveal a frosted jar with a rusty cap. It wasn't easy to unscrew but once I did, I found a note that read:

This jar holds a story - the story of a single tragic incident that needs to be unlocked. Dive in, investigate the evidence and discover what lies beneath the surface.

I pulled the items out one-by-one. First was an old boat key attached to a floaty key chain. The second was a giant (and sharp) tooth attached to a metal plate with the URL www.frenziedwaters.com stamped onto it. Next was a men's bathing suit with one of the legs torn to shreds. At the bottom of the jar were two pieces of paper: one was a WARNING sign about beach closings (with a number - 386-675-0342 - to call) and the other was my own obituary, which read:

Mike Sampson, Editor-in-Chief of JoBlo.com, fell victim to a shark attack while surfing in Ocean City, New Jersey on Monday, July 6th. Founded in 1998, JoBlo.com was the home of the film awards, "The Golden Schmoes," and climbed to the top of the popularity charts amongst other movie news sites. Under Sampson's lead, JoBlo.com was rated as one of the 25 Favorite Online Entertainment Sites by Entertainment Weekly. Funeral arrangements are scheduled for Thursday, July 9th, in Landing, NJ.

That would be tomorrow. Pretty fucking weird, eh? I checked out frenziedwaters.com and there are definitely some clues to get us on our way including some detailed longitude and latitude coordinates. What exactly is going on here? How did I die and will anyone show up to my funeral?

This was in the source

"Something terrifying has been lurking under the ocean's shimmering surface. Feeding on those most vulnerable and those least suspecting. Think you can survive the murky depths of Frenzied Waters?"

This was what I found in the who is (dead end):

I called the number... apparently there are a large amount of seal carcasses that have washed up. Fear of a large predator.

Perhaps this is connected to Splinterheads? [link]

This sounds totally crazy. Viral marketing seems to be getting more elaborate every day.

I think the Discover Channel is behind this. I think 2010 is going to have the best Shark Week ever!

definitely SHARK WEEK

I was hoping for something more exciting, but it looks like it's for shark week. I found an article on starpulse.com. Their boat key says "Discovery Marina" and "SW09."

Thoughts...

I have a hard time believing this is either Shark Week or Splinterheads. First of all, Splinterheads just seems too low budget to go out of their way for this. And it just doesn't make sense. As for Sharkweek, why would the website give specific location in the U.S.? I have a feeling this will be a movie of some sort.
I love viral marketing. The marketing for Cloverfield was brilliant. Unfortunately the viral back story was more compelling than the actual film.

I stand corrected...

It is shark week...My hat is off to you Fatluggage. On the website, if you click the terms of service, it redirects you to the discovery channel website. Lame.

Viral marketing bores me silly.

Also, this new comments system looks WHARRGARBL.

But we'll all get used to it, I'm sure.

New Strikebacks

I'm not digging how I have to scroll all the way back to the top to expand the comments, then scroll back down to the comment I want to read.

Shouldn't we be able to expand a single comment...or I am just missing something?

Also, still no way to delete a double post due to a premature refresh.

That wouldn't have happened if you just would have punched the shark in the face.

Could be Splinterheads

I know we have collectively all decided that it's shark week, and I'll admit I didn't follow the website's info or anything, but I saw Splinterheads at SXSW and the movie featured something called "caching" where a character would get coordinates on a caching website and find jars/boxes at the coordinates that contained little trinkets like the one that Sampson received. Would explain the Montauk Monster thing, the coordinates, and the package itself. Coincidence?
