On a late-November evening in 1987, two Chicago television stations were victims of a broadcast signal intrusion.

After a brief intrusion during the sports report on WGN's 9:00 news, a later broadcast on channel 11 - PBS affiliate: WTTW - of the Doctor Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" was interrupted by a man wearing a Max Headroom mask. The crazed person uttered mostly gibberish, crudely slammed the Chicago Tribune and its subsidiaries (WGN being one of them), and finally dropped his pants and was spanked by what appears to be a child with a flyswatter. 90-seconds later, the program returned to normal. To this day, he has never been caught.

This was originally uploaded by the user "fuzzymemories" (now FuzzyMemoriesTV) in 2006. Please support the Museum of Classic Chicago Television!

I added the subtitles as a courtesy a few months later. Since then, better-quality copies of this have surfaced (such as this one: http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php...). Eventually I may add extra annotations or whatever, but I think you get the idea with this one. Also, this Reddit post is worth a read even though there's no way to verify it: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments...

Also, stop re-uploading this subtitled edit to your own channel for numbers. Having two of the same video on YouTube is totally pointless; do something original, for once...

EDIT:
Thanks to a new video with the audio cleaned up, I've found out that he is indeed saying "I still see the X". And the person with the flyswatter is the one who said "Bend over Bitch".
