Tagruato Employee Of the Month Pages - Howard Stambler

New "Employee Of The Month" pages have been discovered on the Tagruato website !

Going to the URL tagruato.jp/employeeofthemonth takes you to the February employee of the month page.

Here we find a photo and description of Dr. Feng Guangbiao, the author of the most recent Tagruato email.

A link at the bottom of the page takes you to last month's pages, where you will find Vanessa Gwon, the January employee of the month

However, the big discovery is the February Bold Futura employee of the month - Howard Stambler (aka John Goodman)!

The profile reads:


Bold Futura
Howard Stambler -
Telemetry Analyst
Howard will celebrate his seven-year anniversary with Bold Futura in the fall. This month, Howard’s drive, commitment and refusal to accept easy answers resulted in a significant breakthrough diagnosing transmission complications with two of our governmental clients’ orbiting satellites.

Stambler is wearing a t-shirt that says "Radioman '70", possibly a reference to the now defunct Radioman rating for Navy personnel specializing in communications technology. The year 1970 likely means that he served during the Vietnam war.

  6. Howard's shirt says Radioman70

    Radioman70.com links to

    Funandprettythings.com

    Lots of pictures including the Eiffel Tower.

    One of the pictures is a still from Pretty in Pink.

    Click it and your prompted to enter a pass phrase.

    "Do you want to talk?" is the pass phrase.

    That leads to a letter from Howard to his daughter.

  7. Funandprettythings.com is not fake. It might have been registered today, but the Tagruato page was only found about an hour or two ago. For someone to design a website and write out a whole letter from Howard to his daughter, that would take a bit longer. I'm not saying it would take a month to design since the site does look pretty simple, but this fast? No way.

  8. But there is NO WAY the powers that be would have registered the domain names today.

    The employee of the month pages could have been there since the trailer came out, they were only found today. Do you really think someone at Paramount is just combing Reddit until someone finds the clues AND THEN registering domain names? It's ridiculous!

    1. Wow, the rudeness of both of these replies was unexpected. I was just trying to provide a contrasting opinion in the offhand chance that this site is legit. Of course, I have no way of knowing that it is or isn't. I'm just entertaining the notion that it could be if we're indeed going to be given an ARG to have fun with. When did people in this Clover community get so elitist, and just start acting rude towards participators who entertain the possibility of something being real, even if they themselves do not? Guess I'll stick to participating over at unfiction and Reddit and leave this site's comments section alone. Thanks for the positive experience the first time around, Dennis.

    2. I wasn't replying to your post. I was just saying that ignorance is bliss. Cuz it is. It's more fun following a bogus lead than it is waiting around for a real one to pop up.

      If we were in the Matrix I'd want to stay plugged in.

    3. Anonymous,

      Sorry, my frustration was not directed at you. The sloppy handling of all this is ridiculous.

    4. In fact, if you analyze the properties of the images, you'll see that they were edited today. So, the February employee page was published today.

  9. So, Howard works for Bold Futura. Bold Futura's domain was parked in 2007, around or slightly before the teaser trailer debuted. We didn't even know that Bold Futura existed until Tagruato's site went up and mentioned that company, which was months after the ARG officially started. We may want to keep an eye on that website to see if it suddenly becomes active.

  10. At the end of the letter from Howard to his daughter (on funandprettythings) there is a place to enter a message. It then asks if you are megan, and theyln what secret gift Howard gave to her on her 13th birthday. My guesses haven't worked yet

    1. Also saw that one of the pictures shows a bunch of lettered charms. The missing letters are A, E, G, M & N or........MEGAN

  11. I am blown away with what you guys have found. I can't wait for this movie. I bet every photo to this site is a clue to the answer "what did I get you for your 13th bday"

  14. Go to radioman70.com it redirects you to funandprettythings.com

    click on the picture of the girl and computer

    when it asks for the phrase type: do you want to talk?

    it will take you to a letter adressed to Megan about bomb shelters (Howard Stamblers daughter presumably)

    when you try to comment on the letter it will ask if you are megan, and then a security question of what her secret 13th birthday present was. Nobody I know has figured that part out yet tho.

    ReplyDelete
  15. You do not belong here.
    Megan would never come here.
    I know who you are and will be tracking you.

  16. This confirms it, this is a Cloverfield movie indeed... I'm so fu**ing excited!

  17. On the "Employee of the Month" page Bruno Kielholz's face doesn't seem to fit the head. And he seem to been a victim of some sort of contamination.

  18. Anyone find the survival simulator and other links that Howard left for his daughter?
