Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a secure video archive at Site-73. Testing is granted to Researchers Level 2 and higher.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a standard VHS cassette tape with a generic title sticker on the front. On the sticker are the words "The War that Shaped the Modern World", inscribed in blue pen. The tape is compatible with all standard VCR's and any other device which is able to play a normal VHS tape.

When first played by a new viewer, the same words displayed on the sticker appear as the film's title. The only people credited are the director, ███ █████, and the narrator, █. ███ █████. Both names, as well as the film, are not located in any records. The film itself is a documentary, based around the Second World War, clocking in at 2hr, 53min. It appears to be historically accurate, starting with Adolf Hitler's rise to the position of the Führer of Germany, and ending with VJ Day1 and the effects the war would have on society. Many key aspects and battles of the war are discussed, with appropriate footage taken during that time serving as the visuals.

When SCP-XXXX is rewound to the beginning, removed, and inserted again, the footage will display an altered version of historical events. These changes can vary based on the magnitude, place, time, and plausibility.

Such changes can include but are not limited to: alterations of victors and losers, the addition or removal of certain battles, and countries involved in the conflict. The running time of the film can also vary upon different playbacks. As of █/██/20██, run time is in between a range of 45min to 7hr, 42min.

SCP-XXXX was recovered from a school in █████████, Kentucky, on █/██/20██ ,after it was reported that a group of history teachers had each seen different films from the same cassette tape with their classes. All teachers and students involved in the viewing of SCP-XXXX were administered Class A amnestics.
