iamamiwhoami Viral Video Breakdown: Part Deux!

I've been scouring the comments posted to the YouTube account, iamamiwhoami, to see if anyone has been able to decode any of the new secrets in the latest viral videos. Interestingly enough, this is what I found:
"Mandragora officinarum is a species of Mandragora (mandrake), which is used medicinally." Credits: SeekingSolace

"It is ... in bloom from March to April" which makes it possible that this will be revealed in March/April. Credits: SeekingSolace

Christina said Bionic would be released in March. Billboard said Bionic was pushed back to April. Credits: JoelHorton

If the Mandragora plant begins blooming in March/April, and there's 6 dogs, 6 cakes, 6 strawberries, 6 fetuses, that could be a clue to the US release date or the reveal date, as April 6th is a Tuesday. It could also mean there's going to be 6 videos until we find out who is behind the viral campaign. It also could mean this has to do with a 6 letter word, like BIONIC. Credits: Jar2008

Animals that have been featured in the five videos include:
Goat, Owl, Whale, Bee, Llama, thus far. Credits: Jar2008

It seems like we are being handed musical previews of an album since each track is a different "song." For instance, Video 2 seems to have a beginning of a song set as the soundtrack. Video 3 is vastly different, which leads us to thinking it has to be another track. Video 4 has a different sound featuring stick drumming at the beginning. This cannot be a single song, but quite possibly, a preview of many, with the vocals deliberately left out because otherwise it would be simple for us to guess the artist behind it all!

The new video is noticeably brighter. The artist(s) involved still does not want us to know who's behind this. Ironically, Christina's new single Glam is supposed to be released soon. Coincidence? I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I'm fairly certain all will be revealed in what I'm assuming will be the 6th and final video. While a lot of people are dismissing this could actually be Christina, keep in mind the girl in the video is wearing contact lenses, a blonde wig, and is heavily painted black. There are pulsating screen effects, convex lens to distort imagery, not to mention large teeth. The girl is masked in disguises. There are differences in almost every video. The perfectly manicured nails gives it away. Christina ALWAYS has good nails. Credits: MoFoGhetto

EACH VIDEO represents a metaphorical statement linking itself to the TITLES OF THE SONGS ON THE ALBUM. BIONIC-The lifelike ability to perform supernatural things. Hence the ability to lick a tree for a life producing element which begins to flow freely. BIONIC-Having lifelike attachments not natural to one's body. The arms and legs extending from the trees in the video. These videos were supposedly meant to be METAPHORICAL! BIRDS OF PREY. The owl noticing its prey in sight and gearing down to attack which is a metaphorical statement linking the viewer to the song BIRDS OF PREY! Credits: MrAguilera11

iamamiwhoami's profile says their country is Vanuatu. A quick Google search gave me this information:
Vanuatu - a string of more than 80 islands once known as the New Hebrides - achieved independence from France and Britain in 1980.

Most of the islands are inhabited; some have active volcanoes.

Vanuatu is mountainous and much of it is covered with tropical rainforests. Like most of the area, it is prone to earthquakes and tidal waves. Most of the people live in rural areas and practice subsistence agriculture.

  1. Yeah I still don't think Christina is creative or internet savvy enough to be IAMAMIWHOAMI.

  2. Hi, my user name is Mofoghetto on youtube. If you're going to plagiarise someone's words, at least have the courtesy to give them credit.
