Description: The Wyoming Incident (or The Wyoming Hijacking) is a lesser known case of television broadcast hijacking/hacking. A hacker managed to interrupt broadcasts from a local programming channel (believed to serve several smaller communities in the county of Niobrara) and aired his/her own video. The video contained numerous clips of disembodied, human heads showing various emotions and "poses". The camera position changed often (usually every ten-to-fifteen seconds) and the video was often interrupted by a "SPECIAL PRESENTATION" announcement. This clip is taken from one of these intervals.

The video is mostly locally well-known, and would probably not even be that popular if it were not for the effects it had on the few residents who watched it for an extended period of time. Complaints included vomiting, hallucinations, headaches, etc. While some believed it was paranormal, specialists have determined that the cause of these afflictions were frequencies played regularly throughout the broadcast. In this clip, the frequency being played is somewhere between 17 and 19 hz. This range of frequency, when played for long periods of time, causes the eyes to subtly vibrate, sometimes inducing visual hallucinations.

This video is significant in that is one of the most recent television hijackings. Such actions were rare even in the '80s (search for Chicago Max Headroom Incident) and are even more rare today. The hacker has not yet been caught, and all attempts to trace the video have proven futile.

I should warn you guys since these were posted about a year ago on Youtube people started to parody them; you can find many parodies of them on youtube. Don't let that discourage us.

I find this incident very creepy, and I am surprised this hasn't been posted on ATS yet.

It is a very bizarre video. And I wonder what does the 333-333-333 Represents? I am curious about this

The 333-333-333 reminds me of a cab company in my hometown, Denver. Of course, their number is 303-333-3333... not 333-333-333.

I'm not too enthusiastic about watching the videos. The first one starts out with an almost painful high tone... then a low, musical series. Ouch.

Has someone watched the videos and can supply a summary?

Info on #4...has to be an ARG....
Descrip
Description: Video Four was posted by people on the Happy Cube forums, as it was received via e-mail, sent to a chosen member of the game, so the description is irrelevant, but here is the text of the email it was attached to:

"So, you were chosen to take the newest video. You probably think this is all
very fun. Excited? I hope so. Danny was so excited when he bought the third video. He loved those sort of things, you see.
Unfortunately, he Refused to upload it to the internet. That made me very Angry. He finally Killed himself, never letting anyone aside from his brother watch it. This also Upset me, but fortunately, his brother was kind enough to upload it for him.

And Jack Pembry? He was a Psychopath years before he bought the video. Oh, he never acted on any of his Impulses, but they were always there. If he had never seen the video, he still would've Cracked sooner or later. You might be wondering what happened to him. He hoped giving the video to Donald Wilson would help him. It didn't. He's Gone now. He got to be It
for awhile and that while's up. You'll be Gone too. It doesn't even matter what you do with the video now.

Gregory Miller was a perfect Target. Vulnerable, arrogant, with an interest in the Strange he could never even hope to overcome. He kept the video to himself for too long. It Destroyed his mind. Even after he gave his copy to Wilson, he had no hope. He's still alive, completely Dependent on his mother. Everyday, she wanders into the bedroom he now sleeps in, says a prayer for him, and Weeps. She can spend hours in that room, just
Crying. He's completely Repulsive. Imagine, a shell of a human, covered in bedSores, smelling like the Dead. He's gone now too, in a way.

Oh, that's right. You didn't know. I'm not Gregory Miller. GMiller stopped
making posts on his blog almost a year ago. I have sort of claimed it for myself. It's amazing how naive some people are. Without anyone paying for his domain, I had to move it to Blogger, which is better anyway. A bigger audience.

Donald was Dead long before he acquired any of the videos.

Upload the video. Watch it. Watch it until your heart stops beating. Keep
playing my game. It's just so much fun.

Tell everyone that the next one is coming out soon. So far the videos have been sold, given, found, and won. Next time, the video will be shared. Now if only there was someone to help me share it. Oh, that's right. There's Ares. I think I'll call it "Hackjob Johnny Presents Video Five". Doesn't make sense, huh? It doesn't have to. All that matters is that people find it. Look out for it. You Disgust and amuse me.

Do not try and contact me at this address again. It will only be a Waste of your time."

I have not seen any evidence of this anywhere, to be honest.

I don't really know what to make of it.

Supposedly it was done a year or so back, about fictional serial killers and whatnot, I don't know any other details though

Ok, i dont really understand any of this stuff, i have seen some of the videos and i dont really catch the message...
Was it just a prank or something... I am really interested about this but all of the websites i have been on about it have turned out to be a lot of bull crap that i have no idea what they are talking about... One website said that for more information i needed to check out Max Headroom Pirating Incident, and that had nothing to do with the Wyoming Incident that i know of.... So if any one could explain this in english to me i would really appreciate it.... Im guessing its just a prank but am i right? Someone fill me in please.... Thank You

3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 27. 2 + 7 = 9.
333 + 333 + 333 = 999. 9 + 9 + 9 = 27. 2 + 7 = 9
333 x 333 x 333 = 36926037. 3 + 6 + 9 + 2 + 6 + 3 + 7 = 36 3 + 6 = 9.

It all ends in 9.

This is the original Wyoming Incident Video

Definitely freaky as hell

I can't put my finger on it, but there's certainly hordes of hidden meaning laced throughout this thing

Thanks very much for posting that, it's the only thing that brought this thread to my attention. I find this sort of thing fascinating, and freaky. I'm going to see if I can find anything more out about this.

The WYOMING INCIDENT never actually happened, the whole thing was a hoax, perhaps one of the first examples of mass duping on YouTube by people who don't understand what supporting evidence means.

There is absolutely nothing to corroborate any of the claims made about this. It was nothing more than YouTube video/videos claiming this "hijacking" happened.

well even so, even if it is a hoax and it never got broadcast, the content of that video still has some meaning behind it

to quote dan akroyd as ray stanza, "the architect is either a certified genius or an authentic wacko"

Yeah, the meaning is "hey, you know what'd freak people out?"

It's a creative fictional video made to be vaguely spooky, that's all there is to it.
