Buzztown - let's solve this "weird clip" puzzle by Nokia...

I dunno when the site is going to launch, but it is sooo intriguing... somehow, Edison's lightbulb, the Wright bros. airplane, and Apollo 11 contain hints to the secret...

Ideally when the puzzle is solved and the clip is viewed, we all won't go mad or curl up in fetal position...but no guarantees... Wink

Best,
Shalin

p.s. - is anyone here into those puzzle tournaments?

<meta name="description" content="Hundreds of years ago, scientists, artists and members of Royal families gathered to produce a clip of grand weirdness. A clip stranger and more amazing than anything that had ever been made before. But the clip turned out too weird! People went mad from seeing it and it was too much for the common man to handle. Thus the clip was locked away, in a mysterious box with four seals. The knowledge of how to break the seals has been passed down from one generation to another, hidden within the technological masterpieces of history. Edison?s light bulb, the Wright Brothers? airplane and Apollo 11 all held the secret of unlocking the box. A secret that can now be found within Nokia Download service, allowing the public ? you, to find the key to break the seals. And see...the weirdest clip. Ever made...">
