‘Birdman’ Pirate TV Broadcast on Jacksonville’s Fox 30 WAWS [VIDEO]

Being in broadcasting, signal hijacking is fascinating to me. We’ve covered some of the most famous (Chicago’s Max Headroom incident) to the creepy (The ‘death list’ aired on New York City’s WKCR).  This incident from Jacksonville, Florida is 2007 is just bizarre.

A YouTube used uploaded this video today (May 9) states that this video was recorded on November 18, 2007 at 3:43PM.  WAWS/Fox 30 was airing an episode of Matlock when the signal was hijacked for 2:05.

Doing a Google search turned up no news reports of the signal hijacking, and there are questions on this Reddit forum, of the video’s validity.

The signal jammer wore a make and his speech sounded slowed down. It’s difficult to make out and much of the message is unintelligible.  There are several instances of the sound of analog tape rewinding or fast-forwarding. To my old radio ear, it sounds like a reel-to-reel machine.

Whether it’s real or a hoax, it makes for some odd video.  Here’s some of what I can make out:

Don’t worry…once you do this…you will can for him…he will come for you..he will hand you… once he hand it to you, cut it into eight pieces got to the top…turn all the pieces and throw them on to the ground out the window…find all the pieces and bury them…when you complete this, light a match and run fifty feet…you will see….
