Pop Culture Cryptids

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on November 19th, 2005

Driving across America, have you taken notice of the U-Haul trucks and trailers with the bright, colorful graphics? Well, there are 2 states or provinces represented with cryptids.

Vermont has Champ

lake monster

and Newfoundland has the giant squid.

Bigfoot is even rumored to make an appearance on one of Canada’s wandering wall paintings.

On the U-Haul site, you can download wallpaper for your computer and coloring book versions, ready to color, of these images. 

In their online store, you can order t-shirts with several of the images. 

And for those so inclined, Nevada is represented by an Area 51 top secret aircraft, and New Mexico by a Roswell alien.

    For any readers interested, I wrote an article several years ago on U-Haul’s cryptids and paranormal topics. You can find it here: U-Haul Moves into the Paranormal.

    Mr. Radford,
    Great article on the U-Haul cryptids. I was not aware of the article until your comment here. Thanks for posting a link to it.
