I am very thankful to have a name to call this new viral other than “disturbing anonymous viral video collection”, or something of the sort. As we reported earlier in the week, a series of, you guessed it, disturbing videos have been posted to the YouTube account “Iamamiwhoami”. The very artistically stylish videos have brought about a lot of speculation as to who made them, what they are for, and much more. Fortunately, we have a clue thanks to a suspicious package sent to MTV.
Apparently this Iamamiwhoami character has been in contact with James Montgomery of MTV News before, sending him an email with a link to the fourth video in the series. Montgomery even wrote a story in January about who might be behind the videos. Yesterday, however, Iam actually sent him a real package, and what makes it even creepier is that it contained a lock of hair and picture. Ew. The picture (below) contains animals seen in the videos and is supposed to spell out something, but what is unclear. The animals are a goat, owl, whale, bee, llama, and monkey.
On the Echoing The Sound forum and in the comments of the MTV article, a solution offered is “GO TELL ALL WILL BE 11 AM MON”. Sounds right to me, but what Monday, and what timezone?
Who do you think is behind it all?
