Megabyte Man Saves the Music Freaks
By: Patrick Rue
One day Megabyte Man went to get a gift for his girlfriend, Megabyte
Woman, because it was her birthday. He thought about what he was going to
get her and he decided on a CD.
He went to the music store and was browsing through the CDs. Then he
a CD that said on the cover of it "Warning: Subliminal Message Hidden
Content in this CD." Megabyte Man didn't believe it so he asked the
store employee to play the CD.
The store employee inserted the CD into the machine and pressed play.
Man started to feel weird when the music was playing. Everyone else in the
store except Megabyte Man started doing weird things like jumping up and
down and shouting. Megabyte Man stopped the CD and they continued acting
weird. Megabyte Man left $12.99 on the counter and took the CD with him.
He shut the doors of the store so the crazy people wouldn't leave. Then
he sped home to edit the song with his Mac.
When he got home, he shoved the CD into the CD-ROM. Then he launched his
MIDI editing software and looked for hidden messages. The hidden messages
he found were "buy this CD now and check it for subliminal
and "jump up and act crazy."
Megabyte Man thought he got away safe but he did fall into the trap of the
lyrics. Megabyte Man recreated the song with the subliminal messages saying
"act normal, you all look like idiots jumping around like
He put it on a CD with his new CD-R player and rushed down to the record
He jammed his CD in the machine and played it. All the people jumping and
acting crazy stopped and were embarrassed by what they had been doing.
Megabyte Man then edited the whole CD for all of its subliminal content and
sent it to the record company that recorded it. Four weeks later, the new
version of the CD shipped and everyone was listening to it, normally.
