  • About

    Barbie.avi refers to a creepypasta story detailing a party held by the narrator’s friend in an industrial part of town and the subsequent discovery of a discarded computer containing a series of mysterious videos.

    Origin

    On August 9, 2009 YouTube user xenopasta uploaded 3 video clips with distorted audio depicting a young woman with long curly hair in a plain room speaking inaudibly. The description of the of the first video contained a link to a now defuct 4chan post dated July 14, 2009.[1]


    Hello. This thing happened to me a few months ago; I just need to share it with somebody.

    It all started at my friend’s party. He’s an artist who rented out a loft in the industrial part of town. If you can picture what a place like Detroit looked like in the 1920s – that’s what this area looks like. A bunch of old turn-of-the-century factories crammed into ten blocks.

    Most of them are abandoned.

    So I partied a little too hard that night and decided to crash on a couch at the loft. I woke up at around 4 am, the sun wasn’t out yet but you could still make things out in the dim blue light. I went to the bathroom, carefully tiptoeing around the people that were passed out on the floor. As I was taking a piss I tiptoed to look out the bathroom window and I saw the panorama of deserted urban decay.

    I remembered how much I liked places like this. It was so dark and devoid of life, and strangely serene.

    So I went back to the couch and tried to fall asleep. After 45 minutes of staring at the ceiling I decided I didn’t want to be there any longer, so I swallowed my pride and decided to wake my girlfriend up to beg her for a ride, since walking around the vacant streets at this time was not an option. Being an awesome girlfriend, she was totally cool with it, and told me she would be there in about a half-hour and that she would give me a call when she was outside. My phone died ten minutes later so I decide I would sit by the window and watch for her car. I sat there for a while and my eyes started getting heavy and I began to doze off.

    A crashing noise outside woke me up. It wasn’t loud, but just enough to snap me into reality. I looked out the window and scanned the area, but didn’t see anything. Across the street from the loft near a mountain of garbage bags and one of those enormous dumpsters I see a computer and a monitor smashed against the floor that hadn’t been there before.

    When my girlfriend arrived I went downstairs and greeted her. Just as I was about to get in the car, I remembered a friend of mine who had blown out his power supply. So I decided to walk over to the dumpster and see what I could salvage. The monitor was worthless, but the tower seemed to have suffered almost no damage, so I put it in the trunk and we drove off.

    About a week had passed and I had completely forgotten about the tower until my girlfriend called to let me know that it was still in the trunk and that she wanted it out. That night I brought it home. Before I took it apart I decided to hook it up to my monitor to see if it still ran, and to my surprise it did. It ran Windows XP and it looked like it had been wiped clean. I decided to do searches for words like “tits” and “pussy” in hopes of finding some secret stash full of weird deviant porn the previous owner had forgotten about. Morbid curiosity, I guess. Search came up nothing. Searched for picture Files – nothing. Then I searched for movies and one file came up. It was an .avi inside a folder titled “barbie” hidden in the WINDOWS/system32 directory.

    So I played it, now this is where it gets disturbing.

    The movie was about an hour long, and was made up of what seemed like raw exported footage. The footage was of this woman sitting on a chair and talking against a white backdrop. I skipped through most of movie and it was all the same continuous shot. Then I decided to sit though the footage to find out what she was talking about. Fifteen seconds into the footage the audio goes completely bad and her voice is drowned in harsh static/background noise. I couldn’t make out a thing.

    So I imported the footage into final cut and tried to mess with the levels to isolate her voice. It helped a little, but I still couldn’t hear what she was saying. I was intrigued now, and I began to really pay attention to her face and body language. It seems that she’s being asked some kind of questions, because she stops at times to listen, and then continues talking.

    About 15 minutes into the footage, her face begins to redden and contort as if the questions are bothering her… But she continues to answer them anyway. Shortly after she begins to cry. She sobs hysterically for the duration of the film. One of the few words I could lip-read was “skin”. She repeats this word many times throughout the footage and at one point she even pulls at the skin from her arm and mouths the word. She seems to be unhappy with her skin.

    There is much more I have to get off my chest, but it is getting late and I can’t go on. I will share the rest tomorrow. God save my soul.

    It kept on building and building, and about 40 minutes in she’s crying so hard she can barely look at the camera. She stops talking at this point and the rest of the footage is just her crying with her head down. Oddly enough she doesn’t get up or move, the screen just fades to black.

    I was fucking dumbfounded.

    I played the whole thing through many times that night, trying to find inflections and nuances in her movement that would reveal anything else about what was going on. I felt so dissatisfied, I wanted to know more. That’s when I noticed that there was about 10 more minutes left on the timeline after the screen went black, and about 2 minutes in there was more footage.

    The footage was extremely shaky, almost unwatchable, and depicted a pair of legs walking along train tracks. my guess is that camera was accidentally left on as it was being carried somewhere. The person in this footage walks along the train tracks for about 6 minutes and then turns into the forest and walks over what looked like foliage flattened by a piece of plywood. The person continues on this makeshift plywood road until the movie clip ends.

    Now my heart started beating with excitement because there were train tracks a few miles away that looked very similar to the one in the video. I had to check this out.

    I called up my friend Ezra; he’s 6’4 250 pounds of mostly muscle. I convinced him to go on a little adventure with me. I’m no pushover myself, but I felt if was to go wandering in the woods looking for god knows what, extra muscle couldn’t hurt. This whole idea of investigating this video had me so excited I couldn’t sleep.

    The next morning on a sunny Saturday, I took my flashlight, my camera, and my 7 inch ka-bar with a matte black finish and serrated edge and went to pick up Ezra. When I got to his house he wasn’t even awake. When I woke him he pretty much told me to fuck off. I was already packed and I had mentally prepared myself to do this so I decided to go through with it without him. I parked my car at the train station, took my stuff, and hopped onto the tracks.

    After walking for about two hours, I saw a broken piece of plywood and my knees almost buckled with excitement. I searched the nearby foliage, and there it was: a little plywood trail leading into the forest.

    I walked slowly along the trail, paying close attention to everything. I would stop occasionally, kneel down, and listen for anything or anyone… but it was so quiet. This was one of the most nerve-racking things I’ve ever done. I didn’t know what to expect at the end of this trail.

    The dense tree line gave way into a little island of grassy field, and then I saw it, a house being consumed by the forest. From the looks of it no one had lived there for 20, maybe 30 years. I got my camera and snapped a few pics. A few yards away from the house was a tool shed made of rusty sheet metal. I just sat there among the trees for a while, absorbing everything.

    I didn’t want to go into the open field, I had this bad feeling that something would see me.

    It took me a while to muster the courage to up to the house. The door was partly opened. I pushed it in with the flashlight and was relieved that the inside was actually very well-lit. I put my flashlight away, got my camera and took a few more pics. There was no furniture. The floor was riddled with bricks and wood and rubble, and some of the walls had huge holes in them. When I went in further to explore, I saw some things that I didn’t pay much mind to in that moment, but now that I think about them in hindsight, they greatly disturb me.

    The first thing that seemed a little odd was that one of the doors in the first room, that I presumed led to the basement, seemed a little too new to be in this house. It was also the only door in the house that was locked. Also, when I made my way up to the second floor, I saw some chairs and a fold-up table that also seemed a little too new to be there. But what disturbed me the most for some reason, was the bathroom. The dust on the mirror had been wiped away, and in the bathtub, I saw a clear plastic tarp that still had water droplets on it from, when I presume, it was washed clean. That’s when I heard something moan really loud, and that’s when I jumped the fuck out of the second story window and ran back to the tracks.

    Halfway there I realized the moaning was most likely a water pipe expanding or contracting, and that little moment of relief gave into the horror which I felt when I wondered why the water would be running on an abandoned house in the middle of the fucking woods.

    It’s been a little more than 2 months since this happened and I haven’t gone back there, nor do I plan to.

  • 06/10/16--16:34: The "Erratas" Mystery
  • (Work In Progress, help requested.)
    (If somebody knows how, please put this article as a sub-entry of 4chan.)

    General Information

    “Erratas” (Sometimes spelled as “Eratas” to avoid detection) is the name of a supposed computer algorithm which is utilized by major corporations worldwide. This algorithm may be used to remove copyright infringement on websites such as Youtube, and can be seen as a form of mass surveillance. The mystery shrouding “Erratas” comes from how employees of certain companies are supposedly fired if the algorithm’s name shows up in their file search history, and how “Erratas” seems to target and delete any mention of it’s name online. The word “Erratas” (Plural) or “Errata” means “Error” or “Printing mistake” in Latin.
    An anonymous post on 4chan was the first lead, and investigation conducted by a group of anons has turned up many other bizarre leads, including an obscure Bandcamp page, a Hawaiian serial rapist and Jurassic Park. Some anons suggest that the “Erratas” mystery is just an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) or random coincidences.

    First Mentions Of “Erratas” On 4chan

    On November 26, 2015, an anonymous user on 4chan posted a summary of their conversation with a girl about how she was given a “shady” factory job by their temporary agency. The post goes on to say that she picked up a tape gun with the word “Erratas” (Misspelled as “Eratas”) written on it instead of a normal factory department’s name, and they were told by a co-worker to get rid of it, and to never mention the odd name to any supervisors. The co-worker explains that anybody who searched on their computers for the name was “flagged” and fired immediately.

    A month later, on December 19, 2015, another anon posted a question that asked if anyone worked in IT from 2000 to 2010 to find out about some “sketchy program” they’ve heard of from locals, and mentions the name “Erratas” again. A few companies were named that may use the program, such as UPS.

    Discovery of ChronosForLife

    A post was made in /mu/ on January 25, 2016 from a user who wanted to create a new genre of music called “Deep Internet”. Music in this genre would be comprised of snippets and noise from very obscure Youtube videos. A set of links accompanied the description, and one of them led to a Youtube video titled “Youtube is MONITORING and controlling my life”. The video was uploaded on January 23, 2016 by a channel named “ChronosForLife JurassicPark”. In it, the distressed uploader talks about how Youtube and it’s “algorithms” are targeting him and his deceased mother’s tribute videos to the Jurassic Park movies.
    This channel uploaded another video titled “Here goes nothing…”, which claims to be bait for the “Er****s” (Erratas) algorithm to flag and delete. The description reads: “If it flags this one, that’s some spooky shit.”

    A strange discovery was soon made about this video. If one were to turn on Automatic Captions, which are known to create silly sentences out of normal speech and cannot be altered by the uploader or Youtube, an address that reads: “200 Corbin KY 40219” is written in the captions at one point in the video. This is the address listed on the Bandcamp page of “KFC Murder Chicks”, which was recently taken down.

    Another discovery in one of his other videos came in a morse code message near the end of his “Jurassic Park 3 Tribute Re-Upload”. When translated, the message reads: “Hollywood Astral Projection Clinic”. No explanation has been found for this message.

    ChronosForLife uploaded a Q&A video where they answered questions in the comments sections of his other videos(?), but it has since been taken down. However, an anon managed to write a transcript of the video:

    Same Anon here, I just finished typing out a transcript of the video as best I could, and I have to say, things are getting weird. A lot of what he says matches up perfectly with the little that’s mentioned about Erratas in the archived /x/ threads.
    If anyone is able to figure out what the the text said at parts where I wasn’t able to, that’d be great.
    Notes about the transcript: Anything in square brackets are my own notes; " ] " means I couldn’t read multiple words, or that I couldn’t tell if it was multiple words or not and I couldn’t read them; " [?] " means I couldn’t read what I’m pretty sure is just one word; [?] attatched to the end of a word means I’m not completely sure that that’s what that word says; [ attatched to other letters means I could figure out part of the word but part of I couldn’t figure out.

    TRANSCRIPT:
    [start of video]
    I’ve been fairly reluctant to really ask anyone for help since the nature of ] like pre[ classic paranoid nutjob ramblings -
    algorithms controlling things behind the scenes, weird stuff in that vein.
    But I would never waste anyone’s time with stuff like that. In the past couple of years I’ve asked for help from friends in programming and business circles.
    but over time, friendships fade, people move, people stop talking to you. You know the drill.
    As such, I’m very grateful for the help people are giving and I’ll try and answer as many questions as I can here.
    Cork Top writes:
    Q: "So with this video, are you essentially trying to see if this system called “Erratas” or “Eratas” will attempt to take down the video because it’s some system/algorithm that takes down videos that… I don’t know, include the term “Eratas”/“Erratas” in them? Which is why you used asterisks for letters in the word in the description, to see if the system could detect text on videos?"
    [Cont…]

    A: Thanks for writing, Cork. Yes. I don’t know much about programming or computer systems, so I’m not too savvy about how to trick them. All I really know about Erratas is that it’s used by dozens of companies.
    (“recent”, as in, within the last 5 or 6 years)
    they seem to use it as a copyright-enforcement tool which works as an excellent [?] if you want to take down other things as well.
    But it has its limitations, and I’m fairly sure that my “test video” helped ferret those out. Maybe.
    The original Jurassic Park trilogy is excellent, by the way, I highly recommend it.
    The second film is my favorite, in spite of its flaws.
    Frank Horrigan writes “what is the erratas system? any documentation?”
    A: Thanks ]ing, Frank. “Erratas”[?] is something I [?(I’m not sure if there’s a word here or not)] crossed paths with over the years, and in[scope[?] disturb[??(this word MIGHT be “disturbance,” or it might be “disturbs me”)] …
    The fact that it went after my mom in her twilight years is either evidence of its enormous and uncaring[?] reach in other words, a coincidence, or it means it’s
    specifically still coming after me after all these years, and to be frank, both options freak me out equally.
    3M and Unilever were early adopters, which shows the versatility of the system.
    Too much faith is put into computers in general, and WAY too much faith was put in Erratas. Lots of people lost their jobs.
    And Aaron4420 [referring to a YouTuber who posted on one of his videos], it’s easy to talk shit from behind a computer screen but takes a real man to back it up so suck my dick through a straw

    “Tod Ellsworth”’s Youtube Channel & Twitter Posts

    A channel by the name of Tod Ellsworth uploaded a video on November 21, 2015. Its content is a song by the real and existing band “KFC Murder Chicks”.
    In it’s description, the phrase “Erratas or Rusts” is written at the end of the actual description. No explanation is given for this. It once read “Erratas or Bust”, but it has since been changed to the above wording.

    Tod Ellsworth also has a Twitter page. On it, only three bizarre posts have been made by “him”. The first one is an image of a computer-generated police sketch:


    The identity of this man is an unknown rapist last seen in Maui, Hawaii.

    Connections with ChronosForLife have been suggested after discovering that “Tod Ellsworth” is an anagram for “The Lost World”, as in “Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World”.

    KFC Murder Chicks”’s Bandcamp Page

    The Bandcamp page of “KFC Murder Chicks” has long since disappeared. On it, there were odd paragraphs of text and a reference to “Tod Ellsworth”’s name.

    When questioned about “Erratas” on their Tumblr, which is still up and running, they seemingly confused the name with a Yu-Gi-Oh spell card. However, when asked about their dislike for the post office, they say they’re against the post office due to them being tied to “spying and profiling”.

    A post on “Tod Ellsworth”’s Twitter page describes something similar.

    And lastly, when asked about their favorite movie, they answered with: “I’ve always been a fan of the carnosaur movies.”
    This is speculated to be another link to ChronosForLife.

    Takedown of Exer Erb’s Youtube Channel


    “Exer Erb” was a fairly new channel with a video on “Erratas” that explained the mystery and it’s origins very well. However, their channel disappeared due to being taken down by Youtube and has not resurfaced.
    An uploader named “Toxicologist” has a video which discusses “Exer Erb”’s sudden disappearance.

    Anons Banned By 4chan For Discussing “Erratas”

    The discoveries and clues listed throughout this article were found by a group of anons on 4chan who started a long investigation that spanned months to find information about the “Erratas” algorithm. Midway through April 2016, threads about “Erratas” were deleted one by one and anons who tried to discuss “Erratas” were banned, leading some to believe that “Erratas” was installed on 4chan, and is trying to delete threads mentioning it. One anon was banned for “Copyright Infringement” despite the fact that copyrighted material is posted all the time on 4chan.

    Since then, that group of anons has moved to a thread on 8chan.

    The term “Errata’d” is an in-joke here that’s said whenever something is believed to be affected by "Erratas"’s work.
