April 26th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ah, where would we be without viral marketing?

A new website that has just gone up,, featuring nothing but a video that is meant to look like a security camera feed… and after a (too long) wait, big doors open to reveal what appears to be Thunderbird 2. – the doors have TB2 on them , so we’re pretty sure this is the real deal…

Anyway, the video must be linked to ITV’s new Thunderbirds series Thunderbirds Are Go! which is currently filming in New Zealand from Pukeko Pictures and Weta Workshop. The series will air in 2015, the 50th anniversary of the original series.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
