That man is showing some balls. Wish he would hack my profile.

His message is a one that needs to be heard by all. While talking to my father even he agreed that if stuff keeps happening like it is that the people will fight back. I am waiting for that day.

I have to agree with the many here that this video is every bit as necessary as the Thomas Paine guy, Loose Change, Obama Deception and every other video and movie out there that does nothing more than ask you to look around you and see with your own eyes open.
This video uses a unique approach, in that they are taking advantage of modern tech to spread it instead of hoping that someone tells two friends who tell two friends, who...etc. Instead, its right there in your face.

I dont care who is behind it and I agree that it was a bit vague. However, it does say to the listener, "question this, rather than bury your head in the sand."

Star for the transcript and S&F for the post.

Thats awesome. I hope he keeps this up. His in your face approach is what many people need.

We need more vids like this everyday so that we never forget just how corrupt the system is. This guy is more then a rebel of the underground, he is truly a real hero. $&F

crazy that he/they were capable of doing this.

and to those of you who were hacked, changing your password wont fix that, they can still hack your account.

For anyone who says 9/11 was when we should have revolted or anything of the sorts, saying it's too late to take action is a fool. By saying it's too late or we should have took action earlier is only stating that you are giving up and giving into something that can, will, and needs to be changed. I personally am tired of feeling so lost at what to do about it. No matter how much you refute what has happened to our rights or what we as a race need to do in order to live as a collective society that is not ruled by anyone but ourselves, we need to take action. This is terrorism, We will terrorize the people in charge, They will understand that what they do, what they control, and what they keep from us is beyond reasonable.
People need to understand that information that is kept from us is only limiting our advancements, We need to push forward. Not as the United States, Not as the European Union, Not as anything else that could possibly form together as a segregated collection of people, but as a Human Race.
Life sickens me, or should I say current life. I personally feel that my pursuit of freedom is going to lead me to dark places, things that I cannot control but with hopes of getting a message across or inspiring others I can only hope that whatever the outcome of my life's journey represents, that it is a meaningful one.
Enough complaining, enough talking, enough posting and searching... It's time to take action.

Awesome. Now that you have that off your chest, consider learning about something you're so vehemently opposed to. Email moot. Find out how many banhammers have been leveled since 4chan's inception due to child porn. Besides, Chris Hansen hangs out there.

I could be wrong, but there are other "hacker" groups out there besides Anon.

Not that would use that many memes specific to /b/. Unless it's an unusually well planned and executed ploy by Ebaums to distract everyone...

The suit, the Konami code at the beginning, and several of the items used to cover the speaker's face are internet memes originating from Anonymous's main organizing ground,

I don't think anyone did not know that already. Please, go visit 4chan. The closest to a "main organizing ground" is /b/. Have fun finding something coherent enough to back up your claim.

Anyway, he's telling the truth. The Konami code works for everything. Try it in traffic. Just yell it at fellow motorists to activate. I once used it to save a burning bus full of nuns transporting orphaned kittens from falling off a cliff that was also on fire.

Anyway, I formed 2 opinions watching this video:

1. This guy is probably not the stereotypical Anon. Probably a relatively new "member" if you can call it that. The memes used were too many and too outside of /b/ (by that I mean they were lost to the rest of the internet long ago and grabbed up by attention seekers trying their damnedest to be "random" on social networking sites) for this to be anyone really familiar with the entire history.

I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Then again, I suppose it could be an insidious Bauman plot. Or someone trying to make a difference by making a video and realizing that they can get more attention if they align themselves with something a lot of people are already familiar with by throwing in a few things they have a passing knowledge of. I doubt this particular theory. But then again the code is not something you encounter every day...

2: I agree with all of the posts saying it's too long. Break into the superbowl telecast and broadcast this and people will take notice. Hack facebook? People are too busy figuring out ways to abbreviate more words into txt style to watch an 8 minute video.

I also agree that it brings up very relevant problems, but offers nothing in the way of solutions. Violence is somewhat implied but... You go first, we'll see who follows. You can always whip a few people out there into a frenzy with philosophical rants and things like that, but it's going to take a hell of a lot more than a few to change anything.

tl;dr Laughing man is probably relatively new to 4chan or has a passing knowledge of it; doubtful he's affiliated with anon (especially considering most anons are anon to each other also. I don't know why people have a hard time understanding "unstructured" and "loosely affiliated"). And he should condense more info into shorter vids. Release one short video a day on youtube. You'll get thousands of hits from people referring from here alone.

Edit to add: Did anyone else notice the similarity of the physical build of Laughing Man to one of the guys in that YT vid posted here a while back? The one with the two guys dressed in suits and Guy Fawkes masks smashing a TV in what looked to be a garage. I believe it pertained to scientology.

Yea!! I'm just going to have to commend this 100%. Whoever this hacker is, I hope he keeps it up!!
Let's open people's eyes.
Facebook is the best place to do it too. I'm going to put it on my wall right now, as should everyone else!!!

Its news to me. And this is the first I have heard of it, therefore, to me, its Breaking news.

Just sayin' just because an event is old(er), doesnt mean the NEWS of it is old.

You sound irritated

If you found out that world is not flat in 2000 AD would that be news ? maybe ,,personal news" but not *news* .

"News is the communication of information on current events which is presented by print, broadcast, Internet, or word of mouth to a third party or mass audience." I agree with that definition .

It interesting iformation but it's not news .

And I didn't mean to belittle the info but just wanted to point out how old it is because people get their panties wet like something big is happening NOW . Understand now ?

Sad this hack didn't make a bigger splash, but I'm afraid it was too much for attention span of most people :/

Some of us have said this for some time now - drop out of the system, quit watching tv/listening to radio/reading anything from the media, quit paying taxes, drop the emotional attachment to material goods, live as simply as you can. Forget everything you've been told about how to eat, to dress, what kind of house to live in, forget that you "need" a car, forget that you "need" anything at all. Those are all just things to keep you in line.

There is one thing that's important while you're here: self-determination. The trouble is that very few people know what that truly means, let alone remember it in any fashion. Your heart/soul can remember. Your brain cannot. The key to making this change is to learn to truly listen to your heart.

I've said this stuff since I came to ATS. I was laughed at back then. I'm still saying it and I'm also doing it. Start doing it. Posting the info everywhere is fine, but you've gotta take the plunge to make a difference.

I don't thinking hacking peoples accounts is going to wake anybody up

The guy should have at least used one of those text to speech apps if he wanted to remain anonymous. I can barely understand the garbled words. I think he's failed at getting his point across.

I can not believe how a certain person emit comments like that. (Wait for the revolution!? Do not expect good god. Do something already

And not all at the same time we will be killed in masse.act alone everyone in your own backyard. Learn the system, use the syatem weaknesses! Man !the more things changes ... the more they stay the same.

I look forward to viewing this message when I get home. I don't have Facebook (because it is crap) and so I appreciate the embedding of the video.

The thing is, this will just annoy people. Every day I see pathetic people sign onto Facebook (at work ... get some work done) and update their status "I just had a cup of tea," "I must finish this report", "Wow that is a great photo of you drinking beer it is similar to all of the other photos of you drinking beer but it is slightly different so I love this one too" updating their other boring friends about their boring life.

Now the problem is that these people who are so obsessed with living their crap little lives in public are just going to see this video as an interruption to their attention seeking Facebook campaign and will get really pissed off with it. This will in turn be detrimental to the message that this person is trying to get across.

People do not like interruptions, especially when it is to something that they are engrossed with such as Facebook.

I still think it is good news, and I hope that some good comes of it. However, my guess is that Facebook will be inundated with offensive status messages ... let us know

I absolutly love Ghost in the Shell and I totally get the reference. I think that its actually kind of hilarious that he is actually doing exactly what the Laughing Man did in GITS. He's hacking people for what he believes to be the bigger good.

Ever wonder if revolution is what "they" want, and are orchestrating?


I shall ponder this on the Tree of Woe.

You obviously don't understand the concept of anon.
It isn't a club, don't all get along, not an organization, not from one place, it is the next guy to post stripped of name, rank, title, job and recognition hiding in the shadows of the internet and wallowing in the last bastion of freedom before it is raped from us.

Whereas this anon used his abilities to harmless good intent the next anon may just upload child pornography to your account, anon is not an organization by any sense of the word, whoever claims different is herp.

I don't know if you watched Stand Alone Complex, but the LaughingMan would use his grade A hacking skills to try and out corruption. The logo would appear whenever he was captured on camera (he could hack people's eyes and whenever they saw the "laughing man" run past they would only see the logo). He also used the logo to cover his face so that he could remain anonymous and that others may use what he is doing as inspiration to follow in his foot steps.

I doubt if he used that reference to specifically target anime fans. I think he uses the logo because he probably just finished watching the tv show and thought he would try to expose corruption in the same way the antagonist in GITS did.

The Anonymous group? He is using several of 4chan or /b/ characters "hint hint" Those guys are good

If you know anything about Anon formerly /b/ he has all the hints.

Up down left right = barrel roll ... 4chan

Advice dog,laughing man,Luigi,Leonidas ... 4chan

The whole V for vendetta that is Anonymous obviously

But Anonymous left 4chan and separated from it had a revolution of sorts

I hope /b/ erases TPTB from the earth

Good video.

May be a little too long. But it is unusual to keep peoples atttention. Makes a valid point.

People are going to have to make a big choice soon.

A lot of people will have to give up a lot to make this work. My only fear is that people are too scared to make the necessary sacrifices.

Just make sure when its your turn u make the right choice.

Great video, and thank you so much for the transcript.

He gains brownie points by pointing out the fact that he only posted a video and didn't change anything else on the account. That's because all he could do was post a video IMO.

He most likely posted the videos by targeting mobile upload emails ( You can post to ANYONES facebook wall if you know their mobile upload email, and it works from any email address.

Using a script that sent to random emails like, you would be bound to hit a few real upload emails. Using a deception technique by creating a website related to facebook users in which you request their mobile upload email address, you could be pretty successful

I think he just did this because he found out that he could.
