On August 15, 2011, Clif Kosterman (@bodyguard4jandj) tweeted that they wanted fans to send in rubber duckies to join Jared and Jensen in their pool. He asked that fans write their name and country on the ducks, and that the first duck from each continent would get a prize. Clif added that they would donate the ducks to different charities and then auction off some special ones that Jared and Jensen chose for charity as well.
The first ducks arrived within hours of the tweet, and pictures were tweeted by Clif. Within 3 days 198 ducks had arrived . Within two weeks, over 2,700 ducks had arrived. In typical fandom fashion, ducks immediately appeared in many forms including a new Tumblr: Superducktural
Ducks flew in from Supernatural fans all over the globe- as Clif said "so world wide our pond is".

Fans also bought ducks to Salute to Supernatural Vancouver 2011 Convention. At the breakfast on Sunday, Jared explained that around the set because there were 1) various low hanging sets around 2) tall distracted people, they hang rubber ducks on things to remind people to "duck". They had decided they needed a few more ducks... and the rest is history.
Misha himself bought along a large inflatable duck which one fangirl spent four hours inflating. Misha and Sebastian then proceeded to have much fun with during their panels. On Sunday, Jensen took a knife and murdered it. Video of the massacre
