If the beauty of a conspiracy theory lies in the mental contortions required to connect two disparate ideas, then the video below stands with the finest artworks of the Renaissance. 

At first, you’ll be tempted to take “Pitch Perfect 237” for a tasteless joke. But as its sharp-eyed narrator decodes the political imagery of 2012’s highest-grossing film about competitive a cappella, unravels Harry Connick Jr.’s ties to Al Qaeda, and explains what “turn the beat around” really means, the conclusion becomes inescapable: Pitch Perfect is Anna Kendrick’s subliminally charged attempt to reveal the truth about the 9/11. 

Needless to say, the hidden messages in Pitch Perfect 2 will indicate the location of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
