    My first thought? If I wished to create something silly in the real world for the Internet and then track its progress, I'd include a cryptic number that is actually a unique identifier I could search for.

      Yeah, it seems to have gone viral in the last couple of hours.

      A quick check of the grouping shows that the codes may be Kanji or other Unicode font. Does anyone on the forums read such characters?

        Gorilla advertising. Either that or it's the go codes for Bin Laden to make another tape. Actually I figured it out, it states Eat At Joe's.

        This type of communication should be referred to as the Looney Tunes method. Made famous in so many cartoons with signs that state "don't look up". Of course if you see a sign like that your first squirrel like reflex is to look up .

        Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

          It's also important to not make right hand turns there.
          A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

            If Unicode, it's basically senseless - some of the characters are not 'valid', (see http://www.fileformat.info/info/unic...986f/index.htm), and they're not all from the same set. There's Chinese characters, Arabic characters, and Korean characters.

            edit:
            actually, the first 4 are Chinese characters, (although, not speaking chinese, I'm not sure whether the third one is true kanji, or if it's a Japanese language only symbol),
            the fifth is Arabic,
            the sixth is Yi,
            and the last two are Korean.

            so, I'm pretty sure it's not unicode
            /edit


            Also, it could be 'Guerrilla' Advertising. I wonder what Gorilla advertising would look like? :)

            additional edit:
            It doesn't have any camera metadata, but it does have the word 'Adobe' in the header of the file. So, it's probably been through photoshop. (not necessarily a fake, though.)

            It's not stupid, it's advanced.

                  Actually... I know a guy who knows a guy. I think a giant inflatable gorilla will have to make an appearance next year.

                          Actually it could be an extremely clever plot to spread awareness about the BC3, Michele is hot.

                              Step 1: Acquire some large and tall, purple metallic, MC Hammer, balloon pants.
                              Step 2: Acquire an glitter infused, bulky purple sweater
                              Step 3: Convince Priest to wear these, and hold up his arms
                              Step 4: ....
                              Step 5: Profit?

                              Crap. I hope he doesn't read these forums. :-D
