Encerramento de Transmissões da Globo - 1976 - Original/Encerramento das Transmissões
Encerramento das Transmissões (Translated to "Closing of Transmissions") is a screamer video created and uploaded onto YouTube by a user called sluciodcp on October 3, 2006.
The video starts out by showing an old commercial from 1966 of a formerly-existed Brazilian airline company called VASP, showing a man (who is on the airplane), and shows another view where the airplane is on the frame, only to slowly get down, and revealing a VASP logo, after the commercial ends, at 0:24, there is a parody logo that resembles the logo of a television company called Radiobrás, but a few seconds later, one part of the logo disappears and turns yellow.
During the ident/vignette, a sinister male voice says "Midnight. From this moment on, we will be ending our transmissions. We advise you to turn off your TV's, and have a goood night." Then, at 0:46, the screen abruptly cuts to a clip of The Ring, after that, the screen cuts into a Television color bars, followed by VHS static overlay ending the video.
After the video's upload, people started to make their own versions of this video.
