Who Are The Mysterious Men #WINNERTAKESEARTH

winnertakesearthDisinfonauts, help a football (soccer) fan out: who are these robed figures photographed at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena this past weekend? According to Goal.com similarly dressed people have been spotted around the world, notably in Brazil, where the notation #WINNERTAKESEARTH was also found:

The 11 unknown men, each dressed in black robes and sitting in a line, were spotted making strange synchronized gestures during the league match, which Bayern won 3-2.

Situated six rows from the pitch just beside the halfway line in the stand opposite the broadcasting gantry, the group was also seen by TV viewers all across the world.

One fan, Torsten Schmidt, said: “It was very weird. They sat very still for a long time but then would hold their hands up together, or stand up in unison and then sit down again. Everyone near me was very confused. Some people laughed, some looked astonished. It was just very weird.”

A key feature of their clothing was a circular symbol on the chest of their robes. It clearly resembled the logo spotted at a series of linked unexplained event over the past week.

The same symbol has been seen at locations across the globe, starting with the appearance of a hologram on Rio de Janeiro’s Sugarloaf mountain on Sunday, 20 October…

    Word in the robe-wearing community is that these cats have something to do with Samsung….

  • Steven Carson

    The video linked to is very corporate. Looks like an ad campaign for the world cup or some of its sponsors

  • TurkeyburgerDLX

    Samsung

      Mission accomplished, then. Hook, like and sinker.

    Finally! Something interesting in sports is happening.

  • Earthstar

    Stupid ad campaign for a stupid sport. It’s sad they’re wasting public dollars with this stunt, what with police cordoning off the field they damaged, not to mention the thousands of concerned phone calls police centers no doubt received over this.

    • Earthstar

      Amendment: it’s a stupid ad campaign for Samsung. That is all.

        Samsung blows. Everybody knows it.

    • Liam_McGonagle

      Right after I’d read the lead, but before seeing the vid, I was sure this was pulled off by a cabal of mildly retarded 8 year-olds with rich daddies.

      Now I see that I was right.

  • Fernando Andrade

    Probably it is the new football ball that will be used on world cup… :/

    The popular opinion from disinfonauts on Facebook and Twitter is that this is a Samsung marketing campaign. The videos do seem to suggest corporate authorship: http://youtu.be/K6XKanoEEAs

    [sic] a master and an apprentice

    a fascinating move for the disembodied “Sam-sung”

    any bets on whether or not there would have been more shake down had there been no sponsor and “no religion”?

    *edit*
    reminds me of the Toxic symbol/sign
    Monsanto has something to do with it

    Someone with a bit of time and a flair for theater on their hands could flip this easily. I’m thinking black robed freaks (real ones) mock human sacrifices, torch procession, high priest reading from the demon bible, pigs blood etc. etc. in front of Samsung HQ. In religiously conservative markets the association would be sales poison for Samsung.

    Hook your freak show to the Samsung trailer and enjoy the free ride into the minds of consumers.

    (I’d do it but I’m a loner with no friends and I live a timezone or so from the nearest Samsung office)

    It is a marketing campaign by Samsung. It is to do with the World Cup next year.

  • Casey Dekker

    Look out: ‘Truly amazing things’ now have a market value. everything is a commodity.

  • DeepCough

    Samsung? i could’ve sworn that was the Illuminati.

    “Out of these troubled times our 5th objective, the New World Order, can
    emerge. Now we can see a new world coming into view.” George HW Bush, 1991.

    The 5th objective is the hoaxed alien invasion that will be used to solidify the NWO.

    How do we know this? Werner von Braun told us so (via Carol Rosin).

    By cultivating this meme in popular sport and culture, people will really believe the world is being invaded when the hoax goes full tilt.

    maybe it is the galaxy cup of samsung. and the winning team of the galaxy cup final ( galaxy hence aliens) which is to be played at Stanford bridge may 2014 ( hence the football balls) might attend the world cup final and meet the champions in Brazil 13 jun 2014. (hence brazil) The celebrity football manager might be der kaiser … makes sense…we will see tomorrow galaxy cup starts on 17th of nov
