♐SERN is a video posted to the 3rd youtube channel account on January 26, 2018. It is 1:01:12 long and contains a single image (held constant through 1239 frames — confirm!). It was posted 4 days after ♐NODE. The video was removed by Youtube on or before February 19, 2018.


Audio[edit]

The audio track is mostly silent, except for sounds at the very beginning and end:

  • at the start there is a distorted "UFO"/warble sound
  • at 1:00:58 the Unknown Voice speaks the following letters: GUOEN3S (the letter "G" sounds unclear, but it has been checked and confirmed against the alphabet set from the original youtube channel. The remaining letters sound correct but have not been confirmed with waveforms yet..)

Those sounds, with the silence between them removed can be heard here.

Video[edit]

As a single, still image, SERN is similar to ♐MAX_TEND, ♐BRILL B, ♐ (nameless video), ♐SQEN, ♐RESQEN, ♐LIMIT, ♐LONE, ♐HOLDOUT, ♐RESET_STRANGE_YD, ♐ZUFCHO and ♐OR.

Meaning of Title[edit]

Although SERN does have a meaning in the field of rocketry, there are more interesting connections with sern.js, "a Full-Stack Javascript for an easy starting point with SequelizeJS, ExpressJS, PassportJS, ReactJS and NodeJS based applications", as this ties in conceptually with the previous third account youtube titles (♐NODE, ♐RUN, and ♐PORT).

Composite[edit]

With a constant image, this is an unsuitable candidate for making a composite.

Removal[edit]

On or before February 19, 2017, ♐SERN was removed "for violating YouTube's policy on spam, deceptive practices, and scams." This removal was first observed by Discord user Peter on February 19, 2017.

Just over a week before the removal of the video, UFSC was listed at #2 in a popular youtube video by The Infographics Show called "What Are The Weirdest Unsolved Internet Mysteries?", which lead to a surge of interest and new viewers. Whether this attention is related to the removal of ♐SERN is unclear, but it is possible.
