Scary delivery

Scary Video Still

Yesterday we got a strange delivery to our home: A pizza we haven’t ordered along with a 1GB USB stick that read 03/11 in black marker. On the stick there was a scary little video called “Pass auf mich auf” (Keep me save). See the video after the jump. The words “Don’t push the button” as well as the url push11.com briefly appear in the video. On the website push11.com you can see an elevator that counts down the levels from 0 to -11. It will reach subfloor eleven on monday the 19th. Who knows what will happen then? Prior to receiving this video we had already heard about it from other bloggers who received the same. Everyone has their own idea of what this could be. Viral Marketing, an alternative reality game, a trailer for a film or book. My guess would be it’s a teaser trailer for an art event with video installations. Or maybe this is part of a dissertation about the meaning of blogs for alternative advertising campaigns. Everything is possible these days… A list of all other blogs who received this after the jump.

    Hi,
    based on krimiblog and berlinkriminell, we’re putting together all we can find on these, to get to the bottom of the mystery.
    One thing we noticed is that the other videos posted don’t seem to feature the scary face – do you know where exactly (i.e. which second) it was in yours?
    Maybe you want to check out the forum and chat on berlinkriminell…

    Sorry, der Comment war für eine andere Seite mit dem Video – die ist auch englisch.
    ZU viele Fenster offen…

    I still don’t believe in a game, rather in a ordinary viral, but we’ll probably see about that on Monday.

    Also, I find the way of spreading it kinda shady. When people can’t come up with anything really original, funny, and interesting, the easiest way to angle for attention is to provoke and go into grey areas of advertisement.

    Hey echt toller Blog, machst du Einnahmen damit ? Ich selbst hab bei meinem Blog lange nach Verdienstmöglichkeiten gesucht aber nicht gefunden. Jetzt bin ich auf Backlinkseller gestoßen, damit mache ich schon fast 70 Euro im Monat. Hast du vielleicht eine noch bessere Alternative für mich ? Währe echt nett.
