I put my hands where they don’t belong



In other words I like to dabble. I am the wolf 24 10.
But if you insist on keeping score I challenge you to a game of polybius.

To see what I can really do, just upload a video response to any of my Phreak615 videos on YouTube, here.

You like to "dabble". In other words, www.dabbler.com? More specifically...

Did I do it? Did I crack the code?

StephyC said...

i just saw another clip, and it wasn't during a previously taped show!

StephyC said...

baxter, which comment are you saying is his?

baxter226 said...

None. But I have an itching feeling that he's using the word "dabble" as a key reference, especially when refering to one of the most recently posted videos.

Or maybe I'm seriously reaching.

But it just feels funny.

Stephyc

What clip did you see, by the way?

StephyC said...

i saw the one where he said he did it again..i think. but i also think i saw that one this morning...just during a different show. or maybe it was the same show. i don't know anymore.

and yeah, him using the word dabble does kinda make me suspicious...

The "Hacks" are broadcasted during reruns. If they were truly hacks they would be edited out during reruns. Busted.

This is a marketing ploy.

You also do a closeup of your fangs in one of the videos, it wouldn't be too hard for someone at the office to identify that set teeth.

I'd tell MM to be careful with this stunt, you might anger some real black hatters.

StephyC said...

If this is all Much Music's own stunt at a new show...I would have maybe taken a different approach to it. It actually kinda creeps me out seeing this.

attraction notes said...

ya im no hacker or anything, just a fan...Ive been doing work from home the last 2 days, and watched his interuptions during mod yesterday & some much show w. sarah taylor on the street today...sooo funny man. I can only imagine how muchmusic is handling this behind the scenes(embarassing)
hey phreak, do you have a fave hockey team? you should show your support during your next hack...cant wait to see what you have got planned next!

StephyC said...

oh wow, sarah just something really weird on much. she was talking about people doing freaky things now that the warm weather is out..hmmm

jesse said...

The re-runs with the hacks could have just been auto-recorded from when they actually did the show earlier in the day, right? The fact that the hack is still there doesn't really say anything about how legitimate it is. I think.

fatalliecat said...

I would really like to know if this hack is legit. The "reruns" thing worries me... any comment phreak?

StephyC said...

i don't know if the reruns thing works for, or against this guy, since i have no idea about anything to do with media etc. i can't say whether they would edit it out or not.

Boring.

Poor Rosalina McDougall @ 1 416-927-6540 is so tired of getting calls and getting hung up on.

brains said...

Yeah, obviously all of that info is fake. The postal code isn't valid according to Canada Post. And Ms. McDougall seemed frustrated when I explained why she might be getting all these hang up phone calls. Why would MuchMusic do such a horrible thing to an unsuspecting Bank of Montreal/Random Toronto Communications Company employee.

thegirlandtheghost just got phreaked:

Jan said...

it's viral marketting for some sort of reality show, hence why he says "the reality will be shown [...]".

Of course this is speculation, but according to

http://www.dabbler.ca/news/is-phreak615-hacking-muchmusic-me-thinks-not
and
http://diggreponsitory.blogspot.com/2008/04/phreak615-broadcast-hacker-or-muchmusic.html

it's clear that this is a very elaborate albeit well-done marketing scheme. The address signed for the domain is legitimate and resolves to Richmond Hill. The phone number is real (see links for full info) as well.

sweet_heat said...

Right XJ. Poor little Rosalina...
...or should I say XJ in sheep's clothing?

Shall I explain my brilliant deduction:

1. dabble = dabbler
2. wolf = sheep
3. 24 = x
4. 10 =j

XJ said...

Well look at that. I didn't see that coming. Nice job sweet_heat.

XJ said...

Now what does that mean?

TheatreSquee said...

Polybius? The whole urban legend about the game is a hoax. Is this a clue to Phreak615 being a hoax?

Warbear64 said...

is xj, phreak in disguise? would make sense. XJ in sheeps clothing. kinda like the coyote in the cartoons.

Warbear64 said...

trying to pass off as one of us to prompt us to say more.
