After you finished the last one with a ceasar cipher: [ Definitely not suspicious ]

I realize that you guys cannot be distracted.

So, I will tell you the answer, right here.

Hey, look! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jk71bPz5VLo

$Phew!$

While everyone's trying to find a hidden message in that video,

I can now safely enter some secret info for a secret word!

Haha! People will think it's random text anyway.

1.

tba.n.banaao.annot.

2.

ii.tt.i.is.si.i.

3.

amnc.a.aaniic.

4.

bmle.kekare.wmr.w.abl.raraasisae.

Using the hint given in this puzzle

I tried to make palindromes out of the 4 pieces of text and got:

1.

not a banana baton

2.

it is I is it I

3.

cain a maniac

4.

elba kramer saw I was remarkable?

Finally

Taking the first (or last letters) of each of the 4 gives NICE.

Video is probably a red herring

  • $\begingroup$ What's number 4? You're going good, by the way. Also, I would've thought people would see the palindrome in the title, and think, OH, palindromes, but, oh well. $\endgroup$ – Alto Sep 16 '18 at 18:18
  • $\begingroup$ Also, #2 is, " Is it I? It is I! ", but the answer would still be the same. $\endgroup$ – Alto Sep 16 '18 at 18:20
  • $\begingroup$ I had actually not seen this question till I saw the hint in the other puzzle. And then I noticed the palindrome in the title as well :P Working on the 4th one... $\endgroup$ – nikki Sep 16 '18 at 18:24
