A Weird and Mysterious Viral Video that popped up online, possible threat? Hoax? Or what?

placeholder title

On October 12, A tech blogger from Sweden posted about a mysterious video that he received and he wrote that he was making it public to "reach out" to his readers "to try and help decode this."
People responded like crazy, because once you watch this incredibly creepy video, it's hard to avoid the impulse to dig into it. It is apparently a layered and deeply complicated puzzle.

Given the carefully constructed nature of the video, it's hard to believe it is anything but a conscious effort to promote something — a movie, show, or video game. It was, after all, sent to a tech blogger. But it also could be an elaborate warning, as it appears to contain specific threats against the U.S. and the White House. Bloggers and sites like reddit, the Daily Dot, Blumhouse, and others have been busily peeling it apart, and here are a few things they've found.

The video was made in an abandoned insane asylum in Poland.
One Redditor determined the location for the video shoot was "Zofiówka, a defunct psychiatric hospital in Otwock, Poland," and posted a photo that clearly showed the exact same setting, in color. Zofiówka has a dark history. It was devoted to caring for Jewish psychiatric patients and during the Nazi occupation of Poland it was the scene of some horrific tragedies. If we really want to get into the deep conspiracy weeds with this crazy video, it's worth noting the video is sometimes referred to by a code that GadgetZZ blogger Johny K. noted on the DVD's menu, "11B-X-1371." In 1371 the Black Death—Plague—was rampant throughout Europe. Jews were sometimes blamed for the disease, and Poland was mostly spared. An additional hint that the video is referring to some kind of plague: the person in the video is dressed like an old Plague Doctor
(D.Y.K: The long nose on the mask was used to put different medicinal herbs and things in that they believed inhaling would help them not be as susceptible to catching the plague.)

One of the video's "translators" said:
~ Regardless of the meaning of this conspicuous video, its hidden messages are worthy of examination, and reminder that technology is capable of bypassing our primary senses (as demonstrated by placing graphics in audio)
 The creepy footage features a figure in a medieval-style plague doctor mask and black robe who stands silently as strange noises play in the background. 
 It contains numerous cryptic messages which appear to reveal a sinister threat while even the name itself – posted in binary code and translated from Spanish – means 'Death'. 
 Underneath the binary title is another encrypted message which reads as a warning: 'You have one year or less.' 
 Along with the coordinates of the White House, were coded messages telling viewers to 'Kill the President.' 
 There are also references to biological attacks, viruses and images of death which appear for a single frame, or part of a single frame, as well as what some claim are expressions in Morse code. 
 (Allegedly) At one point, a flashlight pulsed by the person dressed in a plague doctor costume, spells out 
an anagram for 'kill the president.' 
 Is someone trying to trigger a killer who may or may not have been programmed to carry out an assassination? Again, no one can be sure of well, really anything about the video… but it certainly is disturbing. ~

The video contains the actual coordinates of the white house along with a threat.
And there's a frame that flashes by almost too fast to notice if you're not paying attention that actually holds the White House's longitude and latitude: 38.897709, -77.036543. Redditors also isolated what looked like random characters to come up with another potentially chilling statement:
"Strike an arrow through the heart of the eagle"

The video was first posted in May 2015.
The Daily Dot reported the handle of a Youtube user who was the first known uploader of the video. They contacted him and he claimed
"a girl he knows found the disk in a park outside Spain on a bench, and then sent him the file online." 
When asked if he sent the video to the blogger in Sweden, he denied it and implied the tech blog wasn't being truthful about how they received it, reportedly saying:
"Anyone can fake a DVD."

The Plague imagery may be explained by one of the codes.
Another secret message found and isolated on frame and eventually others decoded the message in it, which allegedly reads:

"Soon comes the fall. Another great empire.
The fall.
The eagle = on the horizon.
The eagle = infected will spread his disease.
We are the antivirus for the world body." 
Creepy shit right?

If it is a promo for something, no one can figure out what.

Some of the avid Redditors dissecting the video have said it might have been created to go viral and eventually tie in to some kind of production, like for example, a film that's based on Dan Brown's novel 'Inferno',
"In the book, a death-obsessed genius,  while wearing a dark hooded outfit similar to the man in the clip, preaches the benefits of creating a new plague to reduce the human population. The movie is slated to arrive next year."  
Well, see what you think. Here's the actual video:

"01010100 01100101 00100000 01110001 01110101 01100101 01100100 01100001 00100000 00110001 00100000 01100001 11110001 01101111 00100000 01101101 01100101 01101110 01101111 01110011 00101110 00101110" 

"The video's title and description is coded in binary (001110) and translates into Spanish. The title reads "Muerte" (Death), and the description reads "Te queda 1 año menos," (You have one year left, or less.)"

Another person added: 
~ The figure makes only a few hand gestures, one of which reveals a small round crystal in the palm of the right hand, flashing on and off in sequence. But it’s the subliminal and hidden messages in this video that have people mystified and creeped out.

If you watch carefully, you will notice some flickering images and shapes scattered throughout the clip, and of course there’s that distorted digital noise on the soundtrack. None of these are random; every flash-frame and blast of static contains a message, and ever since the Swedish blogger posted it to his site, claiming that he’d received the video via mail from somewhere in Poland, the web has been buzzing with attempts to solve the puzzle embedded within it.

The most disturbing elements seem to be buried in the sound design: when one Reddit user ran the audio frequencies through Sound Visualizer spectrogram software, they unlocked images of torture and murder, along with the words

Allegedly a room from the video inside the abandoned Zofiówka Sanitarium, if you look close, between the two windows on the right you can see the 'graffiti' that's behind the person in the video.

It's so carefully tweaked that whoever created it even embedded graphic images, including crime scene photo of a victim of the Boston Strangler, that only show up when viewed with a spectrograph. I mean wtf, that's an insanely intricate approach to making two minutes of weirdness.
This is a recent "web mystery" and, as far as I know, still not 100% solved. So if you have any f*cking clue please feel free to comment.

"Another disturbing revelation was made by social media users who have posted pictures from what they claim is analysis from a spectrogram – an instrument which gives a visual representation of sound – which appears to show a tied-up woman being tortured, according to Reddit users.
 Another … creates a picture of a human skull.
Why this was done remains up for debate… perhaps we will never know."

In my opinion, I don’t think a production company that wanted to promote a movie would hide a 2 min. video in some park in Spain or send it to some random tech blogger in Sweden. I also don't think they would use real homicide crime-scene photos to promote something. On the other hand I don’t think it's a legitimate threat to the white house either or it would be a bigger deal, nevertheless it's weird and #WeirdIsGood
