We posted an article a little earlier about the second transmission that appeared on GKNOVA6.com. The new video included a code that has since been deciphered as “Classified Announcement Sold,” however a commenter pointed out in our article it may very well be “Classified Announcement SOMD.” We have that classified announcement after the break.
The commenter, Justin, points out that we actually had the wrong answer to the code – off by one letter. Instead of “Sold” it’s “Somd”. That lead him to SOMD.com, a website for Southern Maryland (which is where the packages were sent from, coincidentally), basically used for local news, event planning and so on. The announcement was within this site. If you go to the site, click “Classifieds” > “Announcements” > “PSAs” > And then you’ll find it.
The classified announcement reads:

UPDATE 10:05PM: MrToasty deciphered the code using the key “sputnik”:
38.951796, -77.146586 – CIA Headquarters
38.744281, -104.846806 – NORAD
32.943889, -106.419444 – White Sands (Missile Complex)
38.89767, -77.03655 – White House
55.751667, 37.617778 – Ivanovskaya ploshchad, Russian Federation
UPDATE: While reviewing my site’s referrers (people who’ve linked to MovieViral.com) I found an interesting link. I should point out I remember seeing it BEFORE we had this code, but thought nothing of it at the time (assumed it was a college website). My guess is that the site, SOMD, was contacted before had inquiring whether or not they (marketers) could use the site for a code. My best guess is they included a link to my article comparing what games this campaign may be for in that inquiry. Here’s the link that referred to MovieViral.com: http://help.somd.com/admin/main.php?action=view_ticket&id=55719-7009040544. Here’s how they submitted the help ticket.
