WTF Is This? History Channel Warning?
Below is a commercial from the History Channel. It shows three dates followed by rapidly showing 16 other dates, then ending with May 25, 2009. Ten days from now. Below May 25, 2009 it says "A global event. This changes everything."

Initially I thought this a promo for a special they'll be airing, but it doesn't plug anything. It says nothing about a coming show, nor anything else. Just ends where you see in that link I found.

It gets weirder: I took the liberty of slowing the video and writing down all the dates which are rapidly flashed across the screen. That's 16 dates in 4 or 5 seconds mind you. I looked each of them up - they appear to link to nothing, except in 4 questionable instances, and one that sticks out: September 11, 2001.

Here's the dates, in order, with my findings after looking into each (first 3 and last 1 are slow enough to read normally):
July 20 1969: 1st Moon Landing
November 4, 2008: US Election, Obama
December 7, 1941: Pearl Harbor Attack
June 20, 1647: Birth, John George III (?)
March 15, 1246: (?)
October 10, 1958 Death, Pope Pius (?)
1028 AD: (?)
August 27, 1985: Coup De'tat: Nigeria (?)
September 20, 1987 (?)
January 10, 1347: (?)
February 26, 1980: (?)
845 BC: (?)
September 11, 2001: Terror Attack, US
January 13, 2004: (?)
October 1, 1781: (?)
December 26, 1919: Babe Ruth sold to Yankees (?)
1 Million BC: (?)
0 AD: (?)
July 12, 1984: (?)
May 25, 2009: (?)

What is this?

Interesting, it remids me of the Nicolas Cage movie where the girl wrote down all the dates of tragedies past and future.

So a promo which doesn't tell you the name of the show being plugged, what time it'll be airing nor at least that it's a show they're talking about. Annoying.

I don't have a clue, but this type of post is what I come to GLP for. I don't have a doubt at all that these bastards that run things have to brag about what they have coming for us. Might be something to this.

Here is some discussion we had earlier today on this...

Thread: History Channel: Global Event on May 25, 2009
"Livin' The Dream..."

"Don't believe in anyone, 'cos they'll feel you so much more"

"So break me down if it makes you feel right~and hate me now if it keeps you alright~you can't break me down if it takes all your might~cause I'm so much more than meets the eye..."

"Some people would bitch if their ice cream was cold..."

 Quoting: kyle 675011

I used Wiki for that. For instance searched "January 13" then F3'd and had my computer highlight "2004." Each time, with each date, I either came across nothing or something insignificant such as some nobody's birth or death. Searched the full dates on Google, no better results. Even looked up newspaper archives, ended up with nothing still.

I'm wondering if it's that the only date which mattered was September 11 2001. So you end up with Moon Landing, Obama Elected, Pearl Harbor, 9/11. Also figured they could be important dates but which the significance of them isn't commonly known or easily determined. Or perhaps History Channel was just being lazy, filling those few seconds with a glob of irrelevant dates knowing that nobody could even read them fast enough anyway - but if so, why 9/11? Other than that, I figured there may be a pattern there but if there is, it isn't clear.
