It's not just an "ad exec" - it's a friggin' viral advertisement for a friggin' doomsday prepper business.

It's folks like this what cause unrest.

I'm sorry but you're wrong. There were three explosions. Dumbass. I should get an honorary green.

Well, I guess that could happen to any of us.

It's prepper supplies, this is literally the best thing that could have ever happened to them, "Bad" viral timing or not.

He didn't spill the beans because "panic!!" he spilled the beans because "HOLY shiat WE NEED TO SELL PREPPER SUPPLIES NOW!!!111!!!!111!".

Bet they make a billion dollars selling 80s style metal lunchboxes filled with emergency supplies you can get in the bargain section of kroger for a tenth the money.

The website explained one of the "puzzles" like this: "Caetera Desunt (this was intended to elude that there is still more puzzles to solve) it translates to the rest is missing."

Clearly not the brightest bulbs on the string.

<history>
When Darl McBride and the numbnuts at SCO tried to sue IBM for putting SCO's intellectual property in Linux, their "proof" at one point included showing some code that supposedly infringed, but obfuscated so that their holy IP couldn't be further infringed.  It turned out to be standard UNIX header files printed with the Wingding font.  It took people about 3.8 seconds after the "proof" was shown to be debunked.

At first they were like "Aw man, this spoiled all our clever and hard work setting up our ad campaign.  What terrible timing."

And then they were like "Wow, this is even better advertising than we could have imagined.  What great timing!"

Frankly it's in farking bad taste at any goddamn time and yes they WERE trying to spread fear. They just had bad timing and accidentally got their nebulous-fear-fantasy cross-purposed against ACTUAL specific scary times.
