Gruesome ‘1444’ Viral Video Should Not Be Interacted With

 

A new disturbing video entitled ‘1444’ is going around and is one that the public has been advised not to interact with.

According to Dexetro, a website offering gaming and esports news, the video is 17 seconds long and shows a Russian man saying “goodbye” while facing the camera and “pulling the trigger and exposing all of the brutal visuals of self-execution.”

The video first appeared on YouTube in a channel called “GORE” but has since been deleted. However, the worrying part of it all is that some people have begun a trend by re-uploading it on other platforms and providing different titles and captions for it. 

To try and help people avoid the video that is still apparently circulating on Twitter, user @irkedpoc posted an advisory about how the video begins while also censoring the actual act of suicide. They further elaborated on ways to disable autoplay on Twitter so that people will no longer have to suffer through the few copies still online via autoplay. 

Several users who commented on the post still said to be careful since some were also adding a different clip before the actual suicide video begins to trick people into watching it.

According to Dexerto, the man in the video still hasn’t been identified outside of the fact that he is possibly Russian. There’s also no confirmation whether the video is authentic or faked. Regardless, the gruesome act itself could be enough to trigger many unsuspecting people on social media who might just be scrolling through their feeds. 

Some attacks made with the video have been deliberate as well. Dexerto says that some users on social media might also be sent an ominous link that could redirect them to the said disturbing video. 

If all else fails, be wary of mysterious links and turn off autoplay on both YouTube and Twitter.
