Media Title: ACTION NEWS TEAM 13

Date: Monday, June 30th, 2014

Media Type: Video Recording, VHS Video Cassette

Record Date: Monday, January 27th, 1986

Description: This object appears to be a standard black video cassette tape with white label. "ACTION NEWS TEAM 13" has been hand-written onto the label with a red pen.

Viewer Notes:

Upon pressing play, deafening white noise can be heard though the screen remains black for a duration of twenty seconds. A voice best described as "Asian" in origin then speaks the words "Now we made best connection!" in what is further described as an upbeat tone of voice.

A news desk immediately comes into view, though the camera's focus is slightly off. The News Anchor, a Caucasian male in his late 30s to early 40s sits behind the desk, wearing a blue suit jacket, white shirt, and red tie. Though the image is blurry, his expression can easily be described as a grimace.

Five seconds of silence pass as the Anchor stares forward, directly into the camera. He clutches a set of notes tightly in his hands and remains unmoving until the picture comes fully into focus.

"Nothing..." The Anchor speaks in a sharp, sudden manner, then trails off.

"Nothing," he begins again, "Nothing wrong has happened in the world."

Five to ten seconds pass as the Anchor remains motionless, to the point of not blinking.

"Nothing wrong has ever happened." He adds.

A groan can be heard off-camera, followed by a dragging sound. The Anchor turns his head smoothly to the left, then angles his gaze to the floor by dropping his chin rather than moving his eyes.

The dragging sound persists until the Anchor moves suddenly, as if the hem of his jacket has been roughly tugged upon. At this point, the Anchor seems to raise his foot and quickly lower it repeatedly on an unseen object behind the desk.

A muffled wheeze accompanies the sound of a wet cracking noise.

"There is no weather this evening." The Anchor continues looking at the floor as he speaks.

The image shifts to a wall-sized blue screen with a superimposed graphic of the United States. The screen has been torn at the center, revealing a variety of standard television equipment and lights stored just behind.

The US map shifts suddenly to footage of a crying infant with flies invading its mouth.

A local commercial for "Pete's Pick 'n Pull" auto body shop airs. A man in a cowboy hat, calling himself "Price-Wrangler Pete" touches upon the virtues of buying used auto parts.

Commercial abruptly ends mid-sentence as the News Anchor reappears at his desk. He adjusts his tie slightly, and at this point it becomes obvious that his palms are stained with blood.

"We don't wish to alarm our viewers." The Anchor leans in with what seems to be a reassuring nod. "Nothing wrong is still happening."

The Anchor clutches his papers again and looks to them, slowly, as if it is a struggle to bring his gaze to whatever is printed on the page.

"Sports." The Anchor nearly shrieks through gritted teeth.

The image cuts to a young man in his mid to late 20s. He appears to have a "buzz cut" hairstyle and is wearing a sweater vest over a white dress shirt. This man is standing at the back of the studio, far from his desk in the foreground.

The desk is emblazoned with the words "SPORTS TALK with Tommy Sachs", though the words have been written over with a profanity scrawled in what appears to be blood.

In the background of the shot, the man presumed to be Tommy Sachs is in sharp focus. He climbs onto a small wooden crate and calmly tosses a noose over the rafters. He then secures the rope and places his head through the noose.

The image returns to the Anchor just as Tommy steps from the crate. The Anchor looks up from his papers with a dramatic expression of relief.

"That's it for sports." he remarks.

"Lastly, this evening..." the Anchor seems to be less agitated at this point, "Wrong things have never happened and will continue to not happen. Please sit in your homes calmly and trust that the universe corrects all errors, no matter how small. The connection has been made."

Standard "news theme" music begins to play softly, then is turned to a deafening level as if a knob has been frantically raised by hand. The picture blurs again as the News Anchor slowly and methodically slams his forehead against the surface of his desk.

The scene repeats ceaselessly for no less than one minute as the Anchor's face becomes bloody and his features distort from injury. No sound of impact can be heard over the din of music best described as tinny and unpleasant.

The video abruptly ends.

If I may ask, is there any further information on the "connection" that is said to have been made?

----

Auditor's Note:

Attempts at contacting the persons featured in this video have been unsuccessful, and investigations into the name "Thomas Sachs" have revealed no such person, living or deceased, in the area of this broadcast.

Continued study recommended at a later date.

File amended Tuesday, July 8th, 2014 — Attempts to contact this viewer for subsequent viewings have been unsuccessful, and investigations into their whereabouts have revealed no such person, living or deceased, in the area of their last known residence.

Suggest test group screening ASAP to study further phenomena.

Hi there! :O

This totally made me think SCP.  I wonder how complicated it would be for a film artist to replicate this.  I kinda really want to see it.  Too bad I know fuck all about how to make art films, haha.

Well now, the sequel to Anchorman was a lot darker than I expected.

I think it'd be pretty easy, or at least cheap to recreate this sort of thing. Sets are minimal, only a few actors needed, and the kind of old TV cameras used for this sort of thing are probably much cheaper to obtain than a regular film camera. At least I know that it's usually TV production cameras used for video production classes in most community colleges I've seen. You just need people who can act this out without coming off as laughable to really make it work.

It looked like a pseudo-SCP to me too. I'm guessing it's SB's way of making an SCP-type story with a bit of freedom and not have to deal with the insane restrictions and standards that the SCP wiki expects from a story nowadays (you really gotta hop on that train early on if you can, when the rules are fast and loose, when the well of ideas is still bountiful and the admins are less anal retentive!).

What this reminded me of was the scene in Good Morning Vietnam where Robin Williams defies orders to not report on an explosion in a bar that killed two GIs. Naturally he reports that nothing happened that day, specifically that a bomb did not go off in a bar and two soldiers were not killed.

A month after this story was posted Williams died. Creepy.

This has been bugging me since I first read it, but is there really no one acknowledging that the recording date is the day before the Challenger exploded?

The pseudo-Asian voice with the weird syntax at the beginning immediately made me think of Burgrr/Awful Hostpital/et al from the Bogleech creepypasta-verse.

Which is awesome, little nods and references and easter eggs like that make me slightly giddy.

This is a news program I would watch. Granted, I'd be screaming and most likely vomiting profusely as I watched it, but those are just the risks you take when you want to see hard-hitting journalism.
