Some strange videos and a strange story...
I ran accross this in another forums but thought this might be appropriate here. I am going to just quote parts of the post and links to the files.
Here are the links to the videos
and here is the "story".
"As far as I can tell, apparently a local TV station in Wyoming found it's broadcast signal hijacked and replaced with the videos I linked above. Sounds bizarre enough already right? Well I looked in to it a bit more and around some forums people have been able to uncover some seriously weird details...
First of all, here is the information that went along with the Google video link:
" The Wyoming Incident (or The Wyoming Hijacking) is a lesser known case of television broadcast hijacking/hacking. A hacker managed to ... all » interrupt broadcasts from a local programming channel (believed to serve several smaller communities in the county of Niobrara) and aired his/her own video. The video contained numerous clips of disembodied, human heads showing various emotions and "poses". The camera position changed often (usually every ten-to-fifteen seconds) and the video was often interrupted by a "SPECIAL PRESENTATION" announcement. This clip is taken from one of these intervals.
The video is mostly locally well-known, and would probably not even be that popular if it were not for the effects it had on the few residents who watched it for an extended period of time. Complaints included vomiting, hallucinations, headaches, etc. While some believed it was paranormal, specialists have determined that the cause of these afflictions were frequencies played regularly throughout the broadcast. In this clip, the frequency being played is somewhere between 17 and 19 hz. This range of frequency, when played for long periods of time, causes the eyes to subtly vibrate, sometimes inducing visual hallucinations.
This video is significant in that is one of the most recent television hijackings. Such actions were rare even in the '80s (search for Chicago Max Headroom Incident) and are even more rare today. The hacker has not yet been caught, and all attempts to trace the video have proven futile."
The mystery gets even weirded when you begin to take a look at who is posting the links to these videos and following the "trail"... This was done by a member of another forum and he made a pretty large post detailing his findings:
Other than that I found something on my own which I haven't seen links to anywhere else on the internet...
As you can see, in the weird video the number 333-333-333 has raised quite a bit of suspicion.. well I simply searched that number sequence in quotes within Google and a few pages down I found a weird posting on a website called Topix.net
From what I can tell Topix.net is some kind of community forum thing but I'm not sure. The point is I found a rather obscure post on the website.. check it out..
In that first link someone apparently from Japan, named "Smith" asked the question "Did you see it?"
So someone from Canada responds "Yes" ... WHat the hell?!
And the topic of this post is 333-333-333 .. now if you look at the bottom of the page it shows you other topics posted in this same section and all of them seem to be about and from people in Wyoming.. the place where the TV Hijack took place..
What I gather is that this is a news community website forum type thing where people post about goings-on in Wyoming? I guess? And someone must have seen the broadcast and jumped on the net and asked "Did you see it?"
The reason I find this to be an important clue is that it suggests that this isn't an elaborate prank in that the video was never broadcast over a hijacked signal.. apparently it really was because people saw it on TV in Wyoming and are asking others if they saw it too...
There was another forum post on that site but now I can't find it, it had 3 responses and one of them was from a guy who said something like "yeah I saw it" and then under that posted a link to his blog where he had a link to the video, but the blog was in another language... weird.. but now I can't find that link.. grr
Anyway, this whole thing is really weird and I can't make sense of it. What exactly does 333-333-333 even mean? Why are the videos do damn bizarre? What is the message, if it is just one elaborate prank, then why all the evidence and coincidences? "
"The whole story behind the Wyoming Incident videos is bizarre.
The videos just started popping up on random places on the internet, each with their own little backstory. Links were posted to a defunct message board from 2004 and a blog. The blog has been changed to just a generic teenage-style diary, but it originally had a shitload of weirdass postings that seemed like someone was on the verge of insanity. The original blog postings seemed to give some idea as to what the origin of the videos exactly were. It also explained that the personally behind the videos intentionally created a bad backstory for the original "Wyoming Incident" video. Anyone who knew anything about infrasound would know it couldn't be heard over regular television speakers. It was a very obvious, intentional "mistake". I was only able to read a few of the other posts before they were all permanently altered.
The "producer" of the videos started posting on the defunct message board. Ties were made in with Greek mythology and the legendary black-eyed kids. It turns out some book is missing and some poster from Unfiction is charged to find it. The bookstore's been closed for awhile, and the producer of the videos seems to be in deep shit with some guy who speaks Greek.
It's got to be one of the most bizarre, elaborate internet mysteries that I've ever encountered, and I haven't even read through half of the stories, postings, etc. that make up the whole thing."

FYI, this whole thing is an elaborate internet hoax that started as part of some kind of involved RPG or LARP of some type.

An Alternate Reality Game (ARG), also know as "beasting". It's like an online LARP which involves following clues through fake websites to solve puzzles. The game's motto is T.I.N.A.G. (This Is Not A Game).
An ARG could make for an interesting cover to subject people to mind-altering videomancy.
Yeah, This eventuall lead the ARG players to a fake "Serial Killers Convention" website
