This Weird Creepy Video Contains Dark Threats And Nobody Knows Whoâ€™s Responsible
The internet is a funny old place, full of cat memes, kids falling of skateboards, and cryptic videos brimming withsatanicimages andthreatening messages.
This video was allegedly sent as a DVD to
The sound from the DVD menu revealed this handsome figure – the effort and thought that has gone into this is something else.
Then there is 3D stereogram hidden in the audio that was uncovered by a German forum. It appears to say ‘you die.’
There are other hidden messages within the video clip. Some Morse code has been translated to the phrase RED LIPSLIKE TENTH. And some coded coordinates come out at 38.897709,-77.036543 which is the exact location of the White House. Are you sitting comfortably Obama?
The whole story took another turn when
The video’s title and description is coded in binary and has been translated into Spanish. The title is “Muerte,” which in Engish means “Death,” and the description reads “Te queda 1 ao menos,” or means “You have one year left, or less.”
The Daily Dot contacted YouTube user AETBX, who posted the video, and were told that it was found in a park outside Spain and that he never made it.
The clever people of the internet have alsopartially decoded the windings on the brickwork, and have so far discovered this much:
A ???is on the ris? ??nl join, or y???bll. The viru?h??? too far; i???s?pped. We w??l ? i??t it's roo? ?????, will bur..
The video also included “E2-E3 D1-F3 F1-C4 F3xF7″
Which is a four-play checkmate in chess. Reddit user Omedeito said:
And another Reddit user, who claims he has a penchant for ‘timings/patterns’ has translated the flashing light on the man’s glove, and discovered it is morse code that means:
‘2015 THERE WILL BE THREE’
There are three popular theories from internet detectives (coincidence, we swear).
The first is that its a complex promotional stunt for the upcoming movie version of Dan Brown’s novelInferno. In the book, a death-obsessed genius sends a video while wearing an outfit similar to that worn by the man in the clip, in it he pushes the benefits of creating a new plague to reduce the human population. The movie expected to hit screens in 2016. Even worse, as some are fearing, is that whoever it is may be trying to reduplicate the plot from the book. We’re okay for population reducing plagues thank you very much.
The secondtheory is that it’s a a marketing ploy by the series12 Monkeys. The show follows a time traveller who has come back in time to stop a deadly plague from destroying humanity. A character in the show is said to have a striking resemblance to the individual seen in the video clip.
The third, posted by Gadgetzz, suggests that it could be to do with the DJ Skrillex. He is known for his references and taste for illuminati and satanic issues. He has a song/video called Red Lips that came out in May 2015. (It was May when the DVD was sent to GadgetZZ). It could be a marketing campaign for that.
However, many argue that this is one step too far for any PR company. This is mainly because including an anagram for ‘Kill the president’ and the co-ordinates for the Whitehouse is a very bold move. Not to mention the extremely graphic torture scenes depicted in the audio. There are still many unsolved layers to the puzzle too, meaning lots of time and work went into its creation. Far more than you’d expect for a publicity stunt.
