“Obscure Media” is a term used to describe various media on youtube, usually from before the year 2000, that seems to be rather “obscure, or weird.” An example of obscure media would be independent films, shorts, and everything from news broadcasts to drug P.S.A’s.

The subreddit defines it as “Have you seen everything to the point of having to look for the obscure and the not so often seen? Well perhaps this reddit is for you. Post your favorites. Discuss, request info whatever. Silent films? 60’s & 70’s exploitation flicks? Old classics? Old TV. Pretty much anything Give it a try”


The use of the term ‘Obscure Media’ dates back to 2010, when the OM <a href=“reddit.com/r/obscuremedia”.Subreddit was created. This subreddit focused on sharing the weird film and TV events, not to mention home videos from long ago. As of 2013, the subreddit had over 13,000 subscribers.


Some examples of what makes Obscure Media so Obscure would be the infamous <a href=“http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/max-headroom-broadcast-intrusions”Max Headroom broadcast intrusion of 1987, which featured a signal break-in of a man wearing a Max Headroom mask, and poking fun at politicians and the TV Station he hacked.
