♐FOND is a series posted to the new youtube account between June 11 and 14, 2016. There are eight videos in the series.

Details

The videos all have an identical theoretical length of 27:45. That time is listed for them on youtube, but they play as video (and open in Audacity) with a length of 23:45. It is unclear if there are three "hidden" minutes like in ♐LIMIT.

Audio

It seems that the sound on all FOND videos is the same.

XOR composite

Inspired by the reference to the ⊕ (XOR) symbol in the third G+ post, Piecat has created an XOR'ed composite.

♐FOND XOR composite

The method is described as taking all of the videos in a series and graphically XORing them using the exclusion mixing mode. The resulting composite for ♐FOND has a consistent pattern of alternating 7- and 8-bit strips (i.e. 7 pixels horizontal then 8 pixels horizontal of the same color), whereas one might expect the result to be random. This indicates the possibility there may be a file or or a message hidden in that composite.

3-D Composite

Creating a 3-D composite reveals an inner structure:

Theories on origin

Reddit user /u/FreezePond believes the video is named after him for the fact that he was talking about "what if he had a video named after him" and it was uploaded.
