April 25, 2017 was a mention by Mushroom that there was no Facebook video upload as only the YouTube Copy exists
The video is mentioned on this page - http://www.lift-off-festivals.com/mushroom-feature-film-arg/
The audio from the video, when reversed, provides a phrase, which may connect to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_is_dead
Using the phrase from the video to unlock the webpage A Plea For Help, leads to a page with the following image. Based on the text from the page, the tape pictured in the image may be where the video came from.
From A Plea For Help
|Okay, well done on cracking the code in the training video. Now, we need to get straight to the point. |
For several years, and a huge search involving thousands of people we were short on any leads. That was until this mysterious note was sent into us…
The company on the headed paper is Friedrich & John Pharma. A large organisation listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, at first we were unable to work out a way into their back system, but we think there might be a way if we take the advice of the note by enlisting ourselves into their latest medical trial.
The training tape enclosed was an old BETA MAX tape, it seemed pristine, but when we finally managed to play it, it was badly damaged. One of our company’s post-production people managed to get it up onto digital, but even then it is still glitchy and confusing. After working on the tape our editor took an extended period of absence and has since resigned from Lift-Off Global Network.
