Terrifying Video Of Masked Figure Contains Cryptic Messages Pointing To The White House Claim Conspiracy Theorists

The internet appears to be freaking out (again) over a rather terrifying video that is doing the rounds on social media.

The video, almost two minutes long, was posted by YouTuber Aetbx with the binary code ... 01101101 01110101 01100101 01110010 01110100 01100101, which is translated to the word "death."

It shows a hooded and masked figure, who has a blinking light emanating from the palm of its hand. So far, not too scary.

However, its the encrypted messages in the audio that have sent conspiracy theorists into overdrive as they claim it contains GPS coordinates to the White House as well as secret messages to "kill the president"

YouTube commenters said the blinking light was Morse code that could be translated to "2015 there will be three". In 2015 there are three Friday 13th."

Not wanting to leave all the visual coded messages to the video, the clip's description was accompanied by more binary code: 01010100 01100101 00100000 01110001 01110101 01100101 01100100 01100001 00100000 00110001 00100000 01100001 11110001 01101111 00100000 01101101 01100101 01101110 01101111 01110011 00101110 00101110.

The meaning? "You have one year left, or less."

There were also clues in the audio as Redditors used a spectrogram to get a visual representation of the sound and the results (if they are true) allegedly show a woman being tortured.

This is not the first time this video has surfaced. It was posted in May 2015 but a tech blog based in Sweden claim that a DVD containing the video was recently mailed to them.

A week ago, they posted spectrogram interpretations of the clip's audio:

The Daily Dot spoke with YouTuber AETBX, who posted the video but denied making it.

He said the movie was sent to him by a girl who found it outside a park in Spain. He also wondered about the validity of GadgetZZ's story.

"I think that is absolutely false because the video is spreading through the internet," he said.

"Anyone can fake a DVD."

Well, the story might be fake but you can judge the footage for yourselves.
