    The Wyoming Hijacking Incident

    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.
    These videos scare the shit out of me.

    Supposedly, they were hijacked and played on television.

    There's nothing disturbing in them per-se, no sick images, well, nothing for anybody who's been online. Just closeups of faces and some 3D heads with no mapping [like a 3D modeling thing].

    Ero guro -- A form of hentai based around dead, or heavily mutilated humans engaged in sexual acts. A major theme is large amounts of blood.

    Watched them, they aren't scary unless you buy into hype. Basically its one of those ARG's (Alternate Reality Game). The frequency (if there ever was one) would be distorted after being uploaded and streamed on the internet. If anything, causing your eyes to vibrate would probably just give you a slight headache.
    If I had to guess I'd say the effects people felt had something to do with mass hysteria. People on forums said they had the symptoms only after reading the posts. If you watch the videos first it's not scary at all. Also the info on the story and it's back story can only be found on blogs and random forums. If this really happened, I'd imagine there would've been some huge news report about it.

    I think the subliminal advertising and viral marketing bullshit is getting old. Not saying that's what this is, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was some advertising method for a movie coming out or something. From whiny snotty bitches crying about the color the car her dad got her that advertised Pepsi (I think) of all things, to weird ass faces and weird messages hijacking a television company.

    Link that explains pretty much everything discovered so far. I found it from the other thread that was made and started reading. I think it's a game but it's still freaky once you see the rest of the other things.

    Also make sure you read this short story:
