Max Headroom WTTW Pirating Incident - 11/22/87 (Subtitled)
On a late-November evening in 1,987, two Chicago television stations were victims of a broadcast signal takeover.
After an earlier hijack attempt on WGN-9 during the 9:00 News , a broadcast on WTTW-11 of the Doctor Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" was interrupted by a man wearing a Max Headroom mask. The crazed person uttered mostly gibberish and bashed the Chicago Tribune and its subsidiaries, before he dropped his pants and was spanked by what appears to be a child. 90-seconds later, the program returned to normal. To this day, he remains at large.
This is a subtitled version of the original footage added as a courtesy due to the low audio quality of the recording. This is a rather old version, eventually I will add new annotations in response to how some of the audio was interpreted.
NOTE: The original copy of this recording was provided by the user fuzzymemories (now FuzzyMemoriesTV). I have added these subtitles as a courtesy, please do not copy this video just to repost it on your channel for numbers. Having two of the same video is totally pointless.
