See? The bottom photo is from the film, and the top photo is an image of the U.S. Bank Tower in LA I found on Google (Note the same eye-shaped building adjacent to it):

And here is a closer aerial view of the Tower -- it has a '12' on it:

This is peperation for contact. For the company to use factual data instead of making it up speaks volumes. This means that anyone that wasn't familiar with the object, now knows a great deal more. Open contact could be soon. I believe that there are many races with different agendas, but the majority are benevolent. Probably had a role in our creation.

Apparently a lot of buildings have numbers on them. 10 and 12 being the most common. It was probably shot on top of a building with a 10. Sorry, I was intrigued so I looked it up.



That's all well and good if we were talking about two different buildings. But it's the same building: The U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles.

They shot that scene on the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles. In the movie there is a '10' on it. In real life it has a '12.'





Likely not the same building. Outer perimeter is not a circle, number is wrong, color is wrong. There are many other rooftops in LA with the correct number.

No, it is the same building. See my comment above. It's very obviously the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles, I don't see how that can be disputed.

The rooftop is different. Odds are they couldn't get permission to use the actual rooftop for filming so they used one of the many other, #10 rooftops.

No, the skyline view of the building implied it was. The rooftop is different. Odds are they couldn't get permission to use the actual rooftop for filming so they used one of the many other, #10 rooftops.



You are exactly right. It was just implied from the skyline. I agree -- they are on top of a different building.

Doing a google map look at the area, I see that the numbers on the buildings are red -- 10 and 12 based on the weight the helipad can bear. Different building for sure.

But none have a black number underlined, inside of a red circle. So I still tend to believe this is a clue belonging to the Endgame puzzles.

Some are black 10, some are different fonts... found few black ones. and this is assuming there hasn't been a repaint since the photos were taken. I didn't see an exact match, but it may not have even been in LA.

They are just a darker red, not black. I found the Los Angeles code for helipads. They are all red:
Link



FIGURE 57.4705.4
MARKINGS UTILIZING A SQUARE FOR A ROOF-TOP EMERGENCY HELICOPTER LANDING FACILITY.

NOTES:

1. The preferred touchdown pad background color is white.

2. The red numeral indicates the allowable weight, in thousands of pounds, that the facility is capable of supporting.

3. The numeral shall be oriented toward magnetic north.

4. Allowable weight shall not be in metric units.




More curious than ever reading about how the number should be oriented toward magnetic north.

Looks like you made some progress. Just trying to hash it out too.

It doesn't say what rooftop it is but watch the video and compare to the photos here www.a2zlocations.com...

I work in downtown Philly and a couple of years ago the were filming scenes for the movie "Safe". The weird thing was they had NYC Police cars all over the place. So they were filming in Philly but it was supposed to be NYC. When the movie came out, I couldn't even tell. Apparently it was a lot cheaper to film in Philly.

Ha! you are right!

Boo hiss on you!

Still cannot help but think Frey would capitalize on this for his puzzles, even though i think you successfully nixxed this as a clue.

ETA: I should probably give this a read before attempting to find clues...

Regardless of the real deal number on the helipad, here is what I think about the number 10 used in the video:

It's binary: I O

I'm sure it goes without sayingm but binary is held as a universal code which can supposedly be used to contact other unknown civilizations.

The first rule of marketing is: the product must be the star.



Can you explain the Uncle Drew video then? its 5 minutes long and they don't mention Pepsi at all except at the beginning.

The Black Knight video is about 6 minutes with 3 minutes being a music video and 4 minutes being credits. What does Usher have to do with the Black Knight?

Why isn't Usher the star? This was a brand new song for him. It is entirely possible that most people watched this video for Usher and didn't give a crap about the UFO story. What did we learn new about the Black Knight satellite? Nothing. Its an old story. All they did was take some UFO lore and wrap a Sci FI story around it. The story barely makes sense.

Here is what I see:
A Pepsi production
Some UFO lore
A Sci FI short
A music video
The Pepsi challenge
Credits
Now one of hundreds of ads listed on their YouTube channel. If you notice, they all have Pepsi in the title. Why do you think this is any different?



Look, Zeta, I can't answer anything. I am here just brainstorming like everyone else (you included).

The way I see it, the soda company in question didn't achieve anything regarding their own product or brand; I don't care who is singing (as a matter of fact I first watched the video on mute); and I never waited long enough to read the credits so I have no idea what it says; therefore, if you take me as a sample of target audience they failed epically.

I know I'm not a good sample, however the thread caught my attention and the video intrigued me for the same reason intrigued everybody else: what a heck were they thinking when they produced and released this short movie?

Maybe we should write an email to the soda company and ask them.

Poor marketing nonetheless.

That simple.


PS: you may be right, and we are complicating a simple music video clip. However that too would be poor marketing, if you wanted the star to be Usher (which is not the case). Definitely the star on this video is the Dark Knight.

There is what looks to be arabic writing screened into the peace symbol...can you figure that one out, too? I tried to find some way to translate and gave up pretty quickly:

I think the word on the left is أمن which means peace or security.

Second word might be عالم which means world or universe.

So عالم أمن is "universal peace" perhaps?

Thank you! I'd like to know what the word on the right is.

When I went back to that sequence of global symbols, the 'satellite' opens when the symbol on the building landing pad is lit up and begins to rotate. Then after all the other symbols across the globe are seen, the craft is always shown closed again...until the very end when the story returns to the building in LA. At that point it fully opens and looks like it's heading toward earth.


ETA: Nvm, I see you have that answer, too! Thank you!

I know. I get a little involved sometimes.

The way I see it, the soda company in question didn't achieve anything regarding their own product or brand; I don't care who is singing (as a matter of fact I first watched the video on mute); and I never waited long enough to read the credits so I have no idea what it says; therefore, if you take me as a sample of target audience they failed epically.

Well I think that there was probably a group that only cared about Ushers new song and didn't care about anything else. It almost seems like there were two separate projects that got merged into one. What did Usher have to say about the BK?

nothing. like it wasn't part of the promo.

Maybe we should write an email to the soda company and ask them.

Fair point.


Poor marketing nonetheless.

I'm not saying if its poor marketing or good marketing only that its marketing.


PS: you may be right, and we are complicating a simple music video clip. However that too would be poor marketing, if you wanted the star to be Usher (which is not the case). Definitely the star on this video is the Dark Knight.

Dark Knight

Black Knight

one is a fictional story and one is a fictional story....
