  • It was found on the Unfiction Forums that if the video's audio was reversed and sped up by a radio factor of 20%, it is a clip with some very relevant lyrics from Frank Zappa's song "I'm The Slime":

With the stuff that I say
I'm the best you can get
Have you guessed me yet?
I'm the slime oozin' out
From your TV set
You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don't need you
Don't go for help
no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold The audio clip can be found here:

    • When asked on Noah's Formspring if he was a Frank Zappa fan, the Observer replied "iamtheslime".
  • The scrambled text in the Youtube video's title is a reference to "ZALGO", an internet meme about an otherworldly entity that represents corruption and chaos in the world. This goes along with the Observer's claim that Noah is "corrupted".
  • "WE WILL TAKE YOU AGAIN" refers to Thanksgiving Footage: Day 2, where Noah is pulled out of bed. In that video, Noah appeared to have been under the control of the Observer, suggesting that "take" means that the Observer wants to control Noah.
  • The hand with the Observer's symbol is Noah's. Noah posted a Twitpic after uploading Nature Trail Visit, showing that the Observer symbol was drawn on his palm.
