Holy sh*t snacks! Redditors find massive 'Archer' Easter egg

I'm not sure which is more impressive: the fact that the Archer series creators went through so much trouble to create such an elaborate Easter egg or the fact that someone was actually able to crack the multiple mind-bending puzzles needed to reveal it. And from the looks of things, we haven't even come close to the bottom of this rabbit hole.

The mystery began when eagle-eyed Redditor aglidden noticed what appeared to be a hex code in a scene from the popular animated spy spoof. Translating that code generated a URL that in turn led to a YouTube video. Running the YouTube video's audio channel through a spectrogram then uncovered a hidden message encoded with a Vigenère cipher. Deciphering that message revealed another URL to a Craigslist ad (clearly posted by Kreiger) looking for medical experiment volunteers. The Craigslist ad contained another cypher revealing another URL, this time leading to Kreiger's personal Reddit page. Decrypting the Reddit page revealed a link to Kreiger's Flickr account, which linked to the mad scientist's personal website, Algersoft.net. And that's where things get really weird.

Logging into the Algersoft website (the password is, of course, " Reddit for a complete listing of both the known Archer Easter Eggs and many more potential surprises.
