Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: The objects making up each instance of SCP-XXXX are to be stored within standard secure media storage containers and to be kept at each individual site as necessary. Removal of an instance of SCP-XXXX is not allowed without the direct approval of senior staff such as the Site Director, Chief Security Officers, or Head Researchers. In the case an instance of SCP-XXXX is to be removed for testing, any and all copies of the recorded test are to be destroyed in a way that they cannot be reused.

Description: SCP-XXXX are a number of VHS tapes, DVDs, and USB flash drives each with a label on the outside listing them as "SCP-████ Training Video" with each individual instance of SCP-XXXX listing the number of an SCP in the foundation database. Each instance of SCP-XXXX contains a video which each begin with the foundation's logo on a black background with the words "Secure, Contain, Protect" appearing underneath. As the screen fades away a young man, hereby referred to as SCP-XXXX-α appears on screen standing in front of a stage. SCP-XXXX-α appears in every video as a 20-30 year old Caucasian male, with short brown hair, hazel colored eyes, glasses, and a uniform matching those worn by research staff. At the beginning of every video SCP-XXXX-α introduces himself as Dr. ███████ █████, however no person of that name or description has ever worked for the SCP foundation, and any attempts to find SCP-XXXX-α have yet to yield any results. After the introduction SCP-XXXX-α will continue to talk about the SCP listed on the outer casing of the instance of SCP-XXXX listing off the number and object class before continuing onto describing the containment procedures and what to do in the case of a containment breech before continuing to discuss the SCP's abilities in detail. During this time SCP-XXXX-α will include information from a number of sources such as papers which he will read from and video and audio logs that he will play for the audience. Upon reaching the end of his lecture, SCP-XXXX-α will thank the viewers, give them some parting words, and then the video will once again produce the foundation's logo on a black background before ending.

After the first instance of SCP-XXXX appeared at Site-19 labeled as "SCP-173 Training Video" the anomalous properties were made apparent. As no such training tape had been ordered the tape was contained and then presented to D173-3069 who watched the tape from start to finish claiming that all it showed was the SCP foundation logo with the word "Classified" replacing the words "Secure, Contain, Protect". After thinking it might be a practical joke made by some of the junior staff the tape was almost scrapped before Officer █████████, who had been in the room with D173-3069 as he watched the tape, claimed to have seen a video detailing the containment procedures and containment breech protocols regarding the SCP, however he does claim that the remainder of the video did show what D173-3069 had stated that it had.
