Pronunciation Book Is The Most Interesting Mystery On The Internet Right Now
Is it hinting at a new Halo game, or a new Battlestar Galactica series, or something else entirely? Fans are trying to unravel the cryptic video countdown before time runs out.
For two years, YouTube channel Pronunciation Book made videos like this.
But on April 14th 2012, Pronunciation Book uploaded "How to Ask for Help in English."
The next several videos are titled things like "How to Bargain in English" and feature similarly dark messages and exchanges from the same voice.
The channel then returned to its normal pronunciation videos until July 9th, 2013, when the countdown began.
The countdown has continued each day since then.
In the subsequent countdown videos, the PB narrator typically says something cryptic before announcing "Something is going to happen in XX days."
A sizable fan base has started several wikis, Google Docs and a subreddit to unravel the mystery of Pronunciation Book's 77 days.
Some of the channel's fans ran the static at the end of each video through a spectrograph, which so far reveals this image:
Okay, so what's going on? There are three major theories. The first is that PB is counting down to a new Battlestar Galactica series.
The Daily Dot makes a (spoiler-heavy) point-by-point analysis how the videos could relate to Battlestar, but it's not conclusive.
Over at Geekosystem, however, they're convinced Pronunciation Book is promoting a new Bungie venture, possibly their upcoming game Destiny.
The third major theory focuses on the creator of Pronunciation Book himself, a man called Thomas Bender. Bender owns the domain for PronunciationBook.com.
Some Pronunciation Book theorists suspect the countdown will lead to the launch of a sequel to "This is My Milwaukee."
But we'll have to wait to for the countdown to end on September 24th to know for sure what's going to happen.
