Giegling place a riddle in their source code

During the last month of 2018, Giegling’s website has been acting rather strange, displaying bizarre behaviour and leading many fans across the social media sphere to point out different things that have popped up on the website or appeared on various parts of it.

At one point, the website said “willl be nice,” as displayed below.

During the last week of December, tickets for events all over the world (mainly in the USA) would pop up; when the user made an attempt to purchase them, they couldn’t complete the checkout process.

At times, the homepage for the website displayed a white background with the classic hand-stamped “GIEGLING” logo, which would turn into two opposing white text boxes when clicked.

The box on the right was titled “What You Hate” and the box on the left was titled “What You Love”. The user then had the option to send each response.

When New Year’s Day rolled in, their homepage displayed black with audio that resembled fireworks launching and exploding. The most recent occurrence of strange happenings is the appearance of a riddle in the website’s source code. It reads as follows:

da ist nichts
do you love me?
no more trust
10 years of illusions
for those who dont know
do it myself
see yourself
changing the world is easy
from now on no more music

However, when you inspect the source code, it reveals a sentimentally opposing riddle marked up in the alternative HTML tag.

The alt attribute in HTML specifies an alternate text for an image, if the image cannot be displayed. The alt attribute provides alternative information for an image if a user for some reason cannot view it (because of slow connection, an error in the src attribute, or if the user uses a screen reader).

The alternative riddle reads as:

alles ist da
i love you
no more doubt
10 years of miracles
for those who know
do it together
see myself
changing myself is easy
from now on only music

Nothing new has appeared on the “Shop” website segment. Could this be a final hurrah before they close the curtain on an incredible ten years? We’ll make sure to keep you updated as soon as anything changes.
