Strange Things in the Code…

Our tech corresponent The Web Master is at it again and he seems to have found some interesting things in the code…

Looking at Universal Orlando’s website code we have spotted a marker for a possible seventeen video clips!  Yes seventeen!

See the code below:

// for video
var video = $(‘#hero-vid’).get(0);

$(‘.ipvid1’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(1); // Stranger Things

$(‘.ipvid2’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(2); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid3’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(3); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid4’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(4); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid5’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(5); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid6’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(6); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid7’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(7); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid8’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(8); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid9’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(9); // Coming Soon
$(‘.ipvid10’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(10); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid11’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(11); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid12’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(12); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid13’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(13); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid14’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(14); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid15’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(15); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid16’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(16); // Coming Soon

$(‘.ipvid17’).on(‘click’, function (e) {
playVid(17); // Coming Soon

$(‘#vidClose’).on(‘click’, function (e) {

Last year Universal Orlando had seven total videos spots in their code. This included the five intellectual properties houses and two promotional videos. The rumored leaked house list contained six IP houses and three originals.  Universal could very well do one to two quick teaser videos and one full promotional videos. So, with house and promotional videos it be reasonable to see Universal doing 10-11 videos total. This brings up the question what is Universal doing for the other extra six to seven video spots? This is very weird!

There have been a few rumors already to a Universal Orlando having a tenth house. This very well could point to why Universal plans to shoot so many videos. This tenth house has also bee rumored to be an add ticket like HHN 26’s ‘The Repository’.  If this rumor is true Universal will have plenty of opportunities to market this new add-on house with six to seven potential videos.  Or could the “shows” referred to in the Stranger Things marketing actually be for more than two?  Whatever is planned, it sure looks like Universal has plenty up their sleeves right now!

Let us know in the comments what you think these extra videos could be for…
