    Default Is there something at Popeye's Dillingham?

    I took a bus which passed by Popeyes in Dillingham, and saw a movie crew doing something there. One of the signs was covered up, and another was taken down and replaced by a "Mr. Cluck's" restaurant sign.

    Anyone knows what's that about? (or more importantly, what movie?)
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    Sounds like a new Lost episode!

    Hmm, I'm right down the street from there at school...I'm gonna go past there after class to see this "Mr. Clucks." I wish I had my camera...if it is for Lost, I know a bunch of people who would love to see any "behind the scenes" sneak shots.

    lol whaddya know? It IS Lost! I went there right after class and saw it. Then rushed home and begged my dad to take me there when he came home. Took the camera and snapped some pics of the place. Also got some pics of Hurley! It looks like this will be part os his backstory, he's a Mr. Clucks employee! I'll post them after I resize and stuff, okay?

    It makes sense. He was working at a chicken place before winning the lottery using the so called cursed numbers. His episode aired last night but I missed the first half.

    Did the logo look like this?



    That's from the shirt Hurley was wearing in the first flashback scene of the Numbers episode of Season 1.

    Excuse the glare in some pics, I'm not a good picture taker, especially when you can't roll your car windows down since they've just been tinted

    Hurley?

    I'm pretty sure he was the only cast member there, but it was still fun trying to take good pics when I suck at photography, heh.

    Very cool. Thanks for the pictures, kupomog! And thanks, doc1456, for the heads-up about the shoot!

    Saw the crew near Kawela Bay last week and they stopped us from going to pick some Pipipi(sp?) because we would be in line with the camera. So we had to wait about 45 minutes. Never could see where or what they were shooting though.

    I could only drive by after work, so I didn't see Hurley/Hugo (just another, skinny Mr. Cluck employee and an old pickup truck). I posted one quick cameraphone shot, and took a few more with my "real" camera... especially of the sign.

    It's cute and obsure enough, I'm thinking, that were I a less noble man, some "Mr. Cluck" fan T-shirts might have appeared on the horizon.

    When can we count on your becoming less noble? I want one.

    Where do you think I got that image in my earlier post? There's a CafePress store up already using it.

    I was counting on Pz becoming less noble and at the same time, remaining just as giving. I didn't say I wanted to pay for one! Besides, the whole sign is a lot cooler than just the chicken.

    Well... I won't recommend doing anything, you know, naughty with it... but I'll post what I nabbed when I get home (am at my kid's soccer practice right now) for the good of all Lost-kind.

    But Kupomog got a decent snap already. We'll see how comparatively well my obnoxious 12x lens did soon!

    Perhaps this thread title could be edited, since we figured out what the "something" was. And moved from the Movies section to the TV section.

    Thanks!

    I would have gotten off the bus and took some pics of my own, but then I'd thought of the security there.
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    Yeah I passed by there on my way home from work about 4:30. Saw the big chubby dude with the long curly hair... might have had some others but I only recognized that guy since I only saw the last two episodes.

    Since it's a flash back sequence it would be from a time before the flight. I am not sure but wasn't Hurley and Jack both from Los Angeles? Maybe Hurley might have run into Jack's dad, mom or wife.

    And then again it's a big city.

    Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe...but I was just so crazed at seeing Hurley that if anyone else was there, I wouldn't have recognized them >.< I think they would've all been under the tent when I was snapping away, at least.

    Thumbs up Re: Popeye's Dillingham = Mr. Cluck's

    Well, here's my snap of the sign.

    I also applied some of my poor Photoshop skills to the original image to make the attached. No doubt it'll propagate quickly throughout the Lost-osphere. Just remember where you saw it first! And it probably won't be attached forever, as I shuffle files in the future.

    And of course I made my own online shop so I could make myself a T-shirt or two. PM me if you want the link... but you can always make your own stuff!

    Oooh, nice shot of the Mr. Cluck's employees. He looks really familiar...

    OH! I know, that's DJ Qualls, right?
