Clue #116 - Apollo Candybar on Lostpedia

We've gotten word from a few people who say that the candybars were intended to be given away as part of a gift bag at the event today in New York, however plans changed due to issues with the website and no one attending the event received a candy bar in their gift bag. Lostpedia, however has an image of one of the candybars posted.

New York has another event scheduled for tomorrow night. Go to http://www.apollocandy.com for more details!

OK, my cousin just gave me a call from down at the fantasy football thing... it does start at 5:30, people lined up outside now...

She said that you DO have to register to get in for the fantasy football event; she talked to the lady at the front who is organizing it and she says that you DO have to register online to get in!! My cousin wasn't happy, but it wasn't really out of her way. Just a heads up to anyone heading down there in NYC still... must register first.

Also, the lady who organized it didn't know anything about Lost Promotion or Apollo bars, seems like the promotion is badly organized if they didn't even give them a heads up...

Also, vex & others in DC, we have more info on Friday Tyson's giveaway... my friend called and it is at the Gap from 11-4PM

Lurker here... when you put together the broken bar on the apollo candy site, I think it appears to say "where is alvar?" on the bar, though the little image of the bar the boy is eating seems to have something different that I can't make out even when I try to enhance the image. You can see my pics on my blogger page if you want. ;-) designermama.blogspot.com

I'm a little annoyed... I now live in FL but am from NY and used to walk by that country club place the bars will be at today all the time! Sighhhhhhh! I think whoever gets one should be required to sing,"I've got a golden ticket!" when they report it to others. I am thinking the chocolate will all say the same thing but the wrappers may have our final glyphs. Should be "sweet", ha ha.

OK, now that it's confirmed that there is a concert at CP tomorrow night, I'll head over there to check it out after work.

I gotta get one of these things.

The 1/2 marathon in NYC should be interesting too. How about we get a spy at 1/4 mile intervals and exchange phone numbers or something. We have to cover 13 miles.

Anyone know the route?

I will look into this now.

yes, it also goes right through Times Square which is where the ABC studio is..same place the glyph was.

Half-Marathon Course
The course will begin on Central Park's East Drive (near 87th Street; enter the park at Engineer's Gate at 90th Street) and make a complete, clockwise loop around the park. Runners will then continue to the south end of the park and exit onto Seventh Avenue, heading south to Times Square. A right turn onto 42nd Street will take runners to 12th Avenue (West Street), where, after a left turn, the race continues along the Hudson River waterfront to Lower Manhattan. The finish is on West Street near Rector Street and Battery Park

Hey everyone!
I'm a long time reader first time poster. Someone might have mentioned this and I just missed it but here it goes. I got Entertainment Weekly and in it was a side thing from speaker. On the opposite page is a jeep ad and in light writing it says "letyoucompassguideyou.com". I went there and I don't know if it was there before but if you hover just under east, by 108, it says DI9FFTR751. I tried it on HE.com but it did not work. Again, someone might have seen this so you can just ignore this comment but I just thought I would mention it.

yep.
I've seen that too bookgirl, but because of the script I wasn't certain of all the letters (lower case "L" vs 1, "T" vs "F"). No idea if its meaningful, but I'm sure others have noticed it, and they've also probably found out if it has any meaning. Anyone?

then i talked to another security guard and he knew that the candy bars were some kind of Lost thing. he said that Lost donated candy bars to the event and they put them in the gift bags for the attendees.

They were planning on handing them out today and letting the website go live and while they were testing it, someone... DENNIS figured out where all the images were stored... someone saw us talking about it, locked down the site, and pulled out of the giveaway, now realizing that their plan wasn't as secure as previously thought...

hiding them in a folder called /images/bars isn't exactly the most "fullproof" plan, tho...

I'm just givin' you a hard time, Dennis.. hope you realize that.

It IS a shame about the NY event... a lot of people probably rearranged their day to fit around it.

8/23/2006 05:40:00 PM  
Blogger octavian said...

well, the cancelled thing would make sense since it seems like WIA is not ready for use yet.
I mean, you'd want to have a website up before you advertise it, right?

Also, you'd think they want some sort of TLE representation there when the bars are given away so that the bars go to fans of the show and the codes/images/whatever associated with the bars will be found and distributed. Right?

If someone just stuffed the apollo bars into gift bags and they got lost in the shuffle, I'm certain that would not go over well with ABC (who is footing the bill for the whole thing in some way shape or form).

8/23/2006 05:44:00 PM  
Blogger MissMegs said...

Ok, the best chance I can see if they're honestly just giving out the bars in gift bags to whoever's there is that there's only going to be as many "golden tickets" or whetever we're assuming were getting with them as there are EVENTS. That way, if EVERY bar at this even has the same code/prize/whatever, the chances are good that at least ONE person who got one will be curious enough to try to enter the code at WIA.com - ARGer or not.

That, or I;m still trying to give TPTB WAY too much credit for planning this out properly.

I don't think dennis's handiwork has anything to do with this. More like this was just poorly coordinated from the get-go. The numerous date flubs, the fact that appropriate people at the event locations generally *still* know precious little about the scheduled events, the sloppiness in working on whereisalvar.com that allowed the pics to come out early, and now this. I think you can all rest assured that the various henchmen of TPTB are going to take the fall for these continued foul-ups and mis-steps, but the more there are, the more things increasingly point to the fact that it may in fact be those in charge who are the problem...
