When Arantza asks: ‘Is it the video?’ she is referencing a video I (Ale) shot near Aviemore in the Cairgorms. What was weird about it was that there was a ‘voice’ in it (not mine) and there was no one around. It could be anything though, so pinch of salt.
‘Luigi Board?’ is a reference to one of the funniest videos on the internet.
What Arantza whispered is ‘Damnatio Memoriae’. This is a Latin phrase that means ‘Condemnation of Memory’.
