If we guess it, will you confirm?
Are they remaking "Out of This World"? or "Small Wonder"

No i wouldn't. The 24th is just around the corner. It doesn't start on the 24th. The 24th will be a staged event to promote the Show. I am looking forward to that more than the Show it self. lol

It isn't any of what you mentioned. It also isn't the End Of The World or some Biblical Event. lol

It is a going to be a TV show. I believe allot of people on here will watch it and enjoy it!

I am not involved with it just to let you know. Someone ''who is good with computers'' knows about it and told me.

I won't say what it is. Wouldn't be fair after all this time and promotion via Utube.

bbbbbbut that's what we do at ATS. We let cats out of bags to screw up narratives right?

It is a rather compelling marketing campaign

It's viral marketing for a new "Talking Heads" album.


LOL your closer than you think! Great guess!

But its not a music album or any sort of album.

Max Headroom?


The background story provided for the Max Headroom character in his original appearance comes from a dystopian near-future dominated by television and large corporations. The AI of Max Headroom was shown to have been created from the memories of crusading journalist Edison Carter, with the character's name came from the last thing Carter saw during a vehicular accident that put him into a coma: A bar with a sign warning of low clearance, marked "MAX. HEADROOM: 2.3 M" (i.e., a clearance of 2.3 metres (7 ft 7 in)).

Max Headroom Wikipedia



Max Headroom caused quite a big TV stunt back in the 80's:


On November 22, 1987, two Chicago television stations had their broadcast signals hijacked by an unknown person wearing a Max Headroom mask. The first incident took place for 25 seconds during the sportscast on the 9 O'Clock news on WGN-TV Channel 9 and two hours later around 11 o'clock on PBS affiliate WTTW Channel 11 for about 90 seconds during a broadcast of the Doctor Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock." The hacker mumbled nonsense during his interruptions, including the phrase "The Greatest World Newspaper nerds," a reference to WGN's call letters, standing for World's Greatest Newspaper. A homemade Max Headroom background rocked back and forth as he talked. The video ended with a pair of exposed buttocks being spanked with a flyswatter. The culprits were never identified.

That'd be pretty cool to bring him back. Did you notice that his AI character was based on a "crusading journalist" in a dystopian future?

i have always found that show to be quite odd. it would certainly be something that i would be interested in watching.....although i think that reboots in general are getting tired.

but i hope this is not a marketing campaign. i will be disappointed.

The picture seems to be mirrored. I think the the word is "Tomorrow".


This image, combined with the other guy telling us it's an 80's tv show "ahead of it's time" make me conclude it is indeed Max Headroom. The user also indicated a tv "event" -- which also reminds me of Max Headroom.

My Money is on Agents of SHIELD, which launches on day zero according to the countdown. I doubt the youtube content makes any sense until we see the storylines in the series. It should be noted that ABC are claiming that the show will include ground breaking interactive elements, so I suspect the you tube videos are part of an ARG that runs on the back of the series. Don't be surprised to see Pronunciation Book videos appear as references in the show content, without actually being relevant to the plot.

Joss wheadon has a history of inserting in jokes and subculture references in his creations. Buffy was littered with references to other horror mythos settings that played no part in the buffy mythos.

Don't be surprised if you never find out what Pronunciation Book is all about, unless you are in on the game from the start.

Well, they must have had that TV show in the works for at least 2 years. The YouTube channel has been around that long.

Also, someone that really seems to know what it is said it was a reboot of an 80's show that was ahead of it's time. I don't think Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D would count. God, I hate typing that with the periods and capital letters, what a pain in the rear.

But "Max Headroom" is not being rebooted this year. There would be news about a new Max Headroom show if they were premiring one this season, but there is not.

It could be for the new show on the CW Network (in the U.S.) called The Tomorrow People, which is a remake of a late 1970s British show -- which itself was remade for TV in the 1990s, and again in the early 2000s, but just as an audio series.

Considering the image associated with the countdown includes the word "Tomorrow", it may be a campaign for that show, but The Tomorrow People doesn't premiere until October 9, and this countdown ends on September 24th. It would seem anticlimactic if the countdown ended 2 weeks before the show aired.

Just because the Pronunciation Channel is now the outlet for the "countdown from 77" videos, that doesn't mean that the people behind the "countdown from 77" videos are the same people who started the pronunciation channel 2 years ago. Perhaps a viral ad company wanted an established channel (to add to the "mystique") and paid "The Pronunciation Channel" to use it.

So...

One of us is right?

IMO what better way to announce a new Max Headroom show than duplicating the "incident" wherein entire broadcast channels were "taken over" for a time?

Twitter would light up, Facebook would blow up, water coolers would be hung around. Everyone would be talking, especially people in their 30's and 40's (who usually have money to spend on advertisers).

I still don't know.

Everyone knows about "Agents". They've been showing commercials on TV, and even at the movie theaters for months. Why would they need to do a viral campaign when everyone already knows it's coming?

I posted this thought once already, but rather then put it with the post I was replying to, it was posted on page 6? Not sure why? Anyone out there understand Morse Code?

I"ve checked out the channel too, and might subscribe to it to see where this goes.

My Troll-O-Meter is clicking on 11 for BS, but I think I will keep a close eye on it and the news. For one, I think this is some viral campaign...perhaps for a sequel to the 77 days book?

This should def be watched, and if we are trolled hard, we're trolled hard. If it is true...coincidence.



Sounds like a marketing ploy for something to me. They, cia etc have not used this type of communication in a long time. Not even for Syria, cell phones changed all that, instant communication lol. Went out with cold war.

Newspaper ads are still used for some Russian cells still here. Crazy some of them have kids born in America in college lol. Course we have our fair share there as well lol.
