An NBC4 viewer spotted this #SOS message scrawled in the sky above Los Angeles on June 22, 2013. It appears the acronym -- an international signal for distress -- is connected to a Universal Studios promotion.
A repeating SOS message scrawled in the sky above Los Angeles appears to be connected to an amusement park promotion, not a distressed aircraft.
Dozens of curious -- and some concerned -- Angelenos contacted NBC4 Saturday afternoon about the message, typically an international distress signal.
But in this case, SOS stood for “Summer of Survival," Universal Studios’ promotion of their Transformers The Ride – 3D and King Kong 360 | 3D attractions.
Universal Studios tweeted a photo of the sky writing earlier Saturday with a link to the themepark's Summer of Survival sweepstakes:
