Found the same video on a spanish website, and it had the keyword tags:

guinness tipping toppling domino juan ramon gold 119500

Wondering what 119500 might mean and can't find anything other than

119 500 Mexican pesos = 11 041.561 U.S. dollars


jbfinbar, suggested to me that maybe it might be prize money.

Do you think you will have to be 21 to win any sort of prize, or even participate? I turn 20 soon, and this will seriously blow if I cannot play.

Anyone who played the Stella could confirm that for me, thanks.

JSCDragon -- the pdf (which I included in the first post) was apparently sent to a number of blogs along with the link to the YouTube video.


thanks, just checking I hadn't missed a link somewhere Smile

As for prize money he does say in the letter that "hidden gold lies waiting for those who can find their way." so maybe Mr. Green

EDIT: has same tags on youtube too

ok out of sheer boredom i did the ending as well and the results are a bit more interesting, look! Possible words!
I seem to be missing frames though especially in the beginning one, this is as i am capturing the video from youtube using a video capture tool, does anyone know a way of simply taking the original file from youtube? if legal? Or maybe if anyone has a faster computer or something...

I was going to do the frame by frame thing too but you got to it nice and quick Wink
You should have the FLV in your temporary internet files, or via keepvid.com. If you have an FLV player that can go frame by frame, or have a version of Macromedia Flash that you can import the FLV into, you could advanced frame by frame and save them as images (via screen cap or exporting or what have you)...

Middle may be "News Bureau"

can't get downloaded flv to work, has anyone else tried? Confused
Would be cool to get the words really clear, then we can work out if it's even relevant or not Laughing

use keepvid.com - just make sure you save it with the .FLV extension. Then if you've got Macromedia Flash, it should allow you to import it. If not, I'm not sure of a media player that support FLV as well as frame-by-frame advance. The next bet is to convert it to a format that does work that way.

I have Flash 8 so that's my method of extracting FLV frames.

I'm thinking a list of places to look for the next clue:

Variety (do they mean the newsmagazine? or the website?)


I think the word after Variety is UNIVISION (the spanish channel..again, do they mean the tv station or the website?)

News Bureau --(there is an Internet News Bureau which is a website for business press releases.. perfect place to release something)
http://www.internetnewsbureau.com/

I'm wondering still about this 119500 number, unless it is just the prize...

Also wondering if the dominoes (and colour changes) are important along with Juan's gold tooth. Probably all irrelevant at this stage but just thought I'd make a point of it .

EDIT: I have a feeling Foot is something that is written on the end of a film, head being written on the lead in, for the projectionist, see my earlier post.
