Nobody Knows Who Made This Video But It’s Seriously Scaring The Internet

On any other day, we’d flag up this disturbing video as NSFW. Trouble is, we’re not sure what the hell this video is….

And neither, apparently, is the man who received it…

Writing on his website GadgetZZ.com this week, tech writer Johny Krahbichler claimed he’d received a letter from Poland containing a strange CD with some kind of code scribbled across it. Once played on a computer, he saw a short video of a man in a carnival mask standing in an abandoned room and speaking gibberish.

It got stranger still. Along with nerve-jangling music, the mysterious figure moves around flashing a symbol on his hands as a series of cryptographic clues hit the screen.

Hand it over to the police? How about Reddit, whose band of plucky forum members had already seen the mysterious video posted online months before, using spectrogram analysis to discover the video contains some extremely disturbing images of violence against women.

Not only that, they found the binary code of the video’s title - 01101101 01110101 01100101 01110010 01110100 01100101 – translates to ‘muerte’, which is Spanish for ‘death’. Underneath that code there lies some more blocky binary - 01010100 01100101 00100000 01110001 01110101 01100101 01100100 01100001 00100000 00110001 00100000 01100001 11110001 01101111 00100000 01101101 01100101 01101110 01101111 01110011 00101110 00101110 – which apparently translates to ‘You have 1 year or less’.

Could this be referring to the fact viewers who have just seen a flashing symbol in this odd figures hand and now find themselves cursed? Other theories range from it being the work of the illumanati to a group of terrorists who want to use mind control to kill the US President (one series of digits appears to give the GPS co-ordinates to the White House).

Whatever the agenda, the jury is still out on whether it’s the work of a videogame or horror movie PR, or something far darker.

One user wrote: ‘At best it’s some weird hacker shit or a terrible decision by some PR company. At worst, it’s a terrorist threat or the work of some killer.’

Another offered: ‘I don’t think its a promo, like I did at first. In the spectrogram, there are clearly images of women being tortured.’

Give it a watch below and let us know what you make of it all.
