Black is flattering, usually, but these dudes kind of stand out. Not in a good way.
A group of mysterious figures caused a stir in the crowd at Bayern Munich’s clash with Hertha Berlin at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
The 11 unknown men, each dressed in black robes and sitting in a line, were spotted making strange synchronized gestures during the league match, which Bayern won 3-2.
A key feature of their clothing was a circular symbol on the chest of their robes. It clearly resembled the logo spotted at a series of linked unexplained event over the past week.
Further sightings of the symbol have been witnessed in the Copacabana neighborhood of Rio and on the Brazilian city’s Santa Marta hill, but this is the first time that the mystery has spread to a professional football arena. Also repeatedly spotted at the locations has been the message: #WINNERTAKESEARTH
The article above links to this YouTube video claiming to see the symbol in various places all over the globe.
This is a professionally done video with obvious special effects; it looks like an ad. Our guess, these cult like figures are part of some viral marketing campaign. Possibly for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.
