This better not end up being that porn film containing all those Al Qaeda secrets and plans.

Yeah, I saw it too a while ago but I can't really tell if it's creepy or not since the video is not out yet. At the moment I am looking at this with amused skepticism.

I like that bright gray font better in white color for my eyes...

I feel like it's a hoax that they're trying to publicize and make money out of it...

The craiglist dude must feel insulted if he saw this... (if the craiglist dude in that story existed in the first place that is)

The whole thing is written like a classic scam style except it's not asking for money... ... ... yet...

Why would the craigslist dude sell that ... he would've made bank if he kept it.

Idk...I'm remaining skeptic for now. It sounds like a really elaborate NYU student project or something. Cool though :) Excited for the video!

It can't really be considered a "hoax." It's not real, but it's not trying to be deceptive either. This "Bitterroot Footage" is classic example of an ARG (alternate reality game.) An ARG is an interactive narrative that uses the real world as a platform and uses transmedia to deliver a story that may be altered by participants' ideas or actions.The form is defined by intense player involvement with a story that takes place in real-time and evolves according to participants' responses. Subsequently, it is shaped by characters that are actively controlled by the game's designers, as opposed to being controlled by artificial intelligence as in a computer or console video game. Players interact directly with characters in the game, solve plot-based challenges and puzzles, and collaborate as a community to analyze the story and coordinate real-life and online activities. ARGs usually have horror influences by nature. Players are often called to investigate and scour the internet in order to find more clues to a story that must be unraveled. A good ARG that has built quite a large following is known as the "jadusable" ARG.

This is what I assume it to be, at least, since it really is following the classic ARG formula.

You come pretty much out of nowhere to explain that one... HOAX.

Same here. I'm too scared to click on the pictures or video link. Can someone put a spoiler tag and tell me what it is? It's not one of those links you click and then something scary pops out at you every 5 seconds right?

Well, right now there's only a link showing just a few old pictures.  The video doesn't get released until 5-12.

The pictures are mostly of just some cloaked hermit in his house or out in the woods.  Nothing really creepy really at this point, other than they are just really old-looking pictures.

I don't think this is a hoax, just some good old fashion viral marketing... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1349450/

I finally clicked on the link and I also think it's a student project! The pictures are kinda disturbing to me. bleh. (even though it's not as scary as I thought it would be) I'm kinda interest in it. The video say that it's not a viral marketing video..but who knows lol. And I'm guessing that whoever is trying to spread this project knows soompi, hence the reason why this topic was created :PBut I'm still leaving options that this can be real, it can be anything ~

The video is finally online. The end of the video creeped me out. You can watch the video from the bitterrootfootage website. I heard that Chad is contacting the guy who sold him the box.

Eh, all the speculation on what all this is about isn't worth losing your head over it.
