With the world moving at a faster pace and everyone’s eyes glued to the television on the night of November 22nd 1987 history was made. In the Chicago area the WGN signal was hacked by a person imitating Max Headroom. Only lasting a few minutes the group of signal hackers thought they were defeated.
A few hours later the Chicago PBS station during a Dr Who episode was hacked by someone dressed as Max Headroom spouting off and getting spanked by a flyswatter for over 2 minutes. This set the chase for the Mask wearing bandit.
There have been other hackers who have taken over signal for the Playboy channel, Showtime, HBO, and emergency broadcast systems. Each with their own unique story.
