♐UPRIGHT is a video that was posted to the second youtube account on January 7th 2017.

Content

The video is only 12 seconds long and consists of an animation of vertical and horizontal, greyscale lines moving in a seemingly random pattern.

A distorted Handshake can be heard at the end.

Analysis

Discord users StrugLove and ShadowMorphyn have pointed out that the lines seem to make up a pattern in the form of a person from the shoulders up, like a webcam user or a news anchor. It has also been pointed out that in the middle of the video the whole screen goes gray, and the lines come back in a fashion similar to a .gif or video that has too few I-frames.

Composite

Due to the nature of the video it is not possible to make a composite with intelligible results. However, the whole video has been made into a gif, similar to ♐DELOCK.

Time of posting

This video broke with UFSC's usual posting pattern, where a non-series video would be posted, a day or two before a new series begins (or an old one continues). In contrast, this video was posted after ♐STEM, another non-series video. However, this pattern could have been accidental, in which case the time of posting of this video would be of no concern.

This video was also relatively "time isolated", appearing after a month-long gap following ♐STEM and three weeks before ♐DIAGONAL.
