Google has admitted it is behind the Webdriver Torso web account, an unlikely internet sensation which has mystified and delighted web users.

The mystery began when a series of seemingly pointless 11-second videos – all showing a series of blue and red rectangles – were uploaded in their thousands to YouTube.

Speculation was rife about who was behind the enigmatic postings and what they could mean.

Aliens and spies were mooted.

But now it seems that the reality behind the Webdriver Torso mystery is more mundane – it is one of many tests channels used by YouTube to ensure video quality.”

So no conspicaries lol
