WATCH: The Creepy Plague Doctor Video Mystery Even Reddit Can't Solve

A video one YouTuber allegedly found on a bench in Poland is proving to be a massive mystery.

On the surface, it's just a creepy clip of a man in a Plague Doctor mask soundtracked by an eerie noise. But when the sleuths of reddit looked deeper into it, they discovered all kinds of messages hidden within the video.

They discovered that the video was filmed at an old sanitarium in Poland, using photographic evidence to confirm the location. Then, they discovered that the flashing crystal in the Plague Doctor's palm was actually morse code. Some people reckon the video title can be translated into Spanish for 'you have one year left until death'.

Meanwhile, the ciphertext reveals threats to killing the president, ambiguous phrases like '2015 there will be three' and the following warning:

"SOON COMES THE FALL / ANOTHER GREAT EMPIRE.
THE FALL / THE EAGLE = ON THE HORIZON.
JOIN US. THE EAGLE = INFECTED WILL SPREADD HIS DISEEASE.
WE AARE TTHE ANTIVIRUS WILL PROTECT THHE WORLD BODY."

The video has been online for over five months, but only now has it gone viral. Rumour has it that it could be a marketing ploy for an upcoming film, but no one knows to date where the video actually came from, or why it was made. But if you're interested, read the full thread of detective work  here.
