Thanks to Munk Pack for sponsoring today’s video! ~ Max Headroom was a legendary AI character from the 80s. In 1987 however, a somewhat more controversial version of him appeared on Chicago TV at 9:14pm. Rather than a comedic and exaggerated host, this version was a weirdly unsettling hijacker, and the incident became known as the Max Headroom Incident. This hack/hijack/intrusion is something that has fascinated me for years, so here, I decided to cover the whole debacle.Timings; 0:00-01:32 Introduction01:32-05:45 Max Headroom05:45-07:03 Munk Pack07:03-13:56 The Evening's Events13:56-21:09 Understanding the Hacks21:09-29:56 The Content of the Hacks29:56-34:05 What can we determine?34:05-40:27 Anecdotal Evidence40:27-43:21 Wrapping Up43:21-44:21 Credits and Extra Scene🔗Video Links🔗Bert is Evil: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nReknkEB5qoIntrusion Film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5hPZBd-I18The Bizarre's Documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVcRWOhXmh4Channel 9: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pj1mUk04_hoChannel 11: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5mzkt4N77sNews Reports: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdQ5DbZI0Kc / https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKnwhokvgxVice Article: https://www.vice.com/en/article/pgay3n/headroom-hackerReddit Thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/eeb6e/i_believe_i_know_who_was_behind_the_max_headroom/Reddit Followup: https://www.reddit.com/r/UnsolvedMysteries/comments/3oaxi5/new_developments_in_the_max_headroom_incident/Other references to follow.🏆 Support 🏆Support my channel, get exclusive videos & perks, as well as an ad and sponsor free experience at https://www.patreon.com/nostalgianerd from just $1 🏪 NN Shop & Affiliate Links! 🏪 My eBay Shop: https://nnerd.es/NerdShop (Now Re-open!)My Retro Tech book: http://nnerd.me/HVFtSB (2nd edition is out!)Desk Shelves for Retro Computers: http://nnerd.me/RetroShelves (Because you're worth it) 🍻 Share/Like 🍻 If you wish to share this video in forums, social media, on your website, or ANYWHERE else, please do so!
