The Film Theorists
Watch the entire Local58 series so far! ►
A little while ago I was told to check out a mysterious IT-my channel called Local58. So, I did. What I found was a creepypasta like story told in fragmented pieces in using footage from a "local news station". Theorists, I am hooked! Today we are going to figure out what is going on in the creepy world of Local58!

    Matpat I have a theory not sure if it works out. What if local58 is indeed being used by aliens, but not just aliens trying to take revenge? What if there are also aliens using the channel to save people? For example, why would you show a vid of a guy getting ticked into getting killed by aliens if you want to catch them unawares? Also, the aliens may be trying to get people to stop watching local 58 at the same time, telling them to look away

    Local58 reminds me of another series I’ve read about with a similar concept. If you’ve ever heard of “Channel7” it’s kind of a longer series than what Local58 had shown. Perhaps Channel7 and Local58 could have a _chronological_ continuity that could show a relative plotline.

    *tosses in her two cents* Much as I do get chills thinking about this series, and it's well put-together... I just don't buy that the "Contingency" video would have been made by Americans and simply rebroadcast. Here's the thing: the American mindset has always been about the ideal of freedom, and how they are willing to do whatever it takes to preserve it. It's something we gloat about and wave around like a twirling baton... It's part of what makes the "stereotypical American" so annoying. ^^; It would be more likely that a broadcast of this nature would instruct people where to find shelter and that now is the time for regular Americans to take up arms to defend themselves. Even if they are massively outnumbered, the possibility of even a handful of people surviving to carry on American ideals is still worth fighting for. That said - maybe the aliens took such a broadcast and rewrote it, after studying our other broadcasts for the last several years? After all, do you see any photographed humans in this announcement? Lack of human features to recognize and empathize with? The drawings are rather crude too. Also, rather curious that they went through the effort of making a cartoon at all. Yeah, it adds to the creep factor, but what do aliens understand about human children? Maybe that they like cartoons, but then why have a skeleton creature as the main character - instead of an animal, like they would have observed in other broadcasts? I dunno... Like I said, this is definitely a well done and creepy series, but I always had my doubts about that "Contingency" film being something actually made by the in-universe American government. *shrug*

    Also during the fastest route broadcast one. When the driver crashes, the GPS says "you have reached your destination" like something has approached the car. (Do they have trackers?)(also how was the dash cam footage recovered?)

    Didn’t matpat do something similar to this on game theory? I feel like there was an episode about Legends Of Zelda related to the moon. Either that or I’m just going crazy.

    It is called Local 58 and it joined IT-my in 2017 it is now 2019, what do they have in common, 201 so now you have 7, 7 - 58 = 51 like AREA 51 and MatPat said Local 58 is ran by aliens, aliens are in Area 51 so it is ran by alien and Area 51 has the technology to hack into any broadcast system so the aliens in Area 51 are working with Area 51 to do there evil plans

  • Techbot28

    Im suprised you didnt talk about how the moon has a face in the part of the cartoon were the skeleton is walking (and the moon is looking at him) Edit: Also, the cartoon was probably made by the aliens cause it explains why it shows so early in the morning
