Watch A Boards Of Canada Commercial Aired On Cartoon Network

By Liz Pelly / April 28, 2013

Boards Of Canada have sent fans on a crazy treasure hunt of sorts throughout the past week. First, the band released a mysterious string of six 12-inch records on Record Store Day, each containing audio of a unique 6-digit number. Apparently, when all codes are put together, they make up some sort of secret message the band is trying to communicate. Things got even more complicated later in the week, as more coded messages from the band started surfacing on their YouTube channel, assorted radio shows and message boards. On top of all this, last night the band aired a commercial on the Cartoon Network. The commercial was 90-seconds long and suggested that the secret code should read: “699742 / 628315 / 717228 / 936557 / —— / 519225.” Check it out below.
