  • Bikini Bottom, one week before hibernation season.

  • An anonymous local sponge vanished without a trace

  • and caused the formation of an elusive shadow organization

  • behind every business decision, political campaign

  • and aquatic catastrophe in Bikini Bottom,

  • an organization known only as "Gold Team".

  • Gold Team rules!

  • This is Bikini Bottom Mysteries.

  • We all know the famous Gold Team

  • one of two famous teams formed by Sandy Cheeks.

  • Alpha Team, you search uptown,

  • Gold Team searches downtown.

  • Gold Team's whole purpose is to search for a missing sponge.

  • Or is it?

  • While they may look like an ordinary search party,

  • beneath the surface, Gold Team is one fishy faction.

  • Exhibit A, dominant disciples.

  • Is Gold Team really just a search party?

  • Or are they are highly specialized crew of elite fish,

  • each with their own set of very specific skills?

  • Remember to drink plenty of fluids.

  • Tibor, a muscular fish who acts as the team's muscles/enforcer

  • as long as his weak constitutions don't get in the way.

  • [announcer] Those of you with weak constitutions

  • may want to leave the stadium.

  • - I gotta get out of here! - Too late!

  • His blind sense of tribalism makes him the perfect leader of Gold Team.

  • Gold Team rules!

  • Henry, an orange striped fish

  • with the ability to change colors on command

  • and infiltrate any party in Bikini Bottom.

  • Hey, can you believe this guy crashed your party?

  • Steven, a renowned snorkel specialist

  • with the ability to communicate with boots.

  • - Yeah, I'll have the Krusty Special. - Thank you, sir.

  • An unnamed blue fish with a purple stripe

  • who can blend in with both the young folk and the elderly of Bikini Bottom

  • without arousing suspicion.

  • He's also clearly lying about his childhood.

  • As you can see, me and Chocolate no longer hang.

  • If that's really you, where is your signature purple stripe?

  • You can keep that for five bucks.

  • I'll take 10!

  • And finally, the supernatural anomaly himself, Nat Peterson,

  • whose strange powers we already covered in a previous investigation.

  • Here he's seen shapeshifting into a human hand.

  • Does this sound like the make up of a simple search party to you?

  • No, something just doesn't add up about Gold Team.

  • Even their very origins are mired with contradictions.

  • Which brings us to Exhibit B, Alpha Team.

  • The following is an official clip

  • documenting the supposed creation of Gold Team.

  • Alpha Team, you search uptown,

  • Gold Team searches downtown.

  • - Any questions? - Gold Team rules!

  • Let's analyze this a bit more closely.

  • Sandy assigns the code name Alpha Team to the first group

  • in the back-right corner of the Krusty Krab.

  • Alpha Team, you search uptown...

  • But now let's watch the footage of Gold Team once again.

  • Where are they standing? The back-right corner of the Krusty Krab.

  • That's right, the order that we know as Gold Team

  • is really the group Sandy named Alpha Team.

  • Alpha Team, you search uptown...

  • And yet they immediately begin calling themselves Gold Team.

  • Gold Team rules!

  • As if they had already decided that was their name before the meeting.

  • Is it possible that Gold Team had been formed

  • long before Sandy assigned them a name?

  • Is it possible that Gold Team has always been lurking around Bikini Bottom,

  • not to search for missing sponges,

  • but instead to accomplish their more sinister agenda?

  • Exhibit C, their more sinister agenda.

  • Throughout the history of Bikini Bottom,

  • during every major catastrophe, Gold Team was there.

  • Let's examine this footage from the infamous

  • ripped pants debacle of Goo Lagoon.

  • When SpongeBob first arrives,

  • Tibor is clearly visible on the beach, working out.

  • But then, just moments before the inciting pant rip,

  • he's nowhere to be found.

  • Coincidence? We don't think so.

  • Is it possible that Tibor is no longer here

  • because he's the one who ripped SpongeBob's pants?

  • Maybe this incident wasn't an accident at all.

  • Maybe it was a highly coordinated attack on SpongeBob's pants.

  • Why else would the beachgoers that day be full of members of Gold Team?

  • No doubt watching SpongeBob to make sure the job gets done.

  • Not convinced? Then let's look at this footage from the town meeting

  • discussing the Alaskan Bull Worm assault on Bikini Bottom.

  • Gold Team leader, Tibor, is nowhere to be found. But then...

  • I'd rather that worm come in here right now and eat you all alive!

  • He suddenly appears only seconds after Krabs mentions

  • the worm eating the citizens alive,

  • proving that Gold Team has an insatiable appetite for carnage.

  • How did he know the discussion had taken this turn, you ask?

  • Maybe because he had Gold Team spies placed all throughout the meeting.

  • At every important meeting, Gold Team is there.

  • Whenever there's a powerful, influential figure, Gold Team lurks behind them.

  • And during every disaster at Bikini Bottom,

  • Gold Team is conveniently nearby.

  • They even attend parties

  • that only the highest order of Bikini Bottomites are invited to.

  • Dude, how did you get in there?

  • Giving them a means to rub fins with influential fish

  • like the mayor of Bikini Bottom himself.

  • The very same mayor who makes chaotic decisions like opening a bridge

  • before it's finished.

  • It is with great pride that I officially open this unfinished bridge.

  • Could this mean that even the mayor is in Gold Team's pocket?

  • That even the government is being influenced

  • or even controlled by Gold Team?

  • Wake up, people!

  • Gold Team has members placed in organizations

  • all throughout Bikini Bottom,

  • and Bikini Bottom just happens to be mired in chaos,

  • the very thing Gold Team covets.

  • They've been exercising their influence over the city

  • ever since the day they were created and even before.

  • So maybe, just maybe,

  • regardless of the politicians, kings and even gods in Bikini Bottom,

  • the people who are truly ruling the city

  • are the members of an elusive secret order whose mantra is literally,

  • "Gold Team rules."

  • And now for a Bikini Bottom bonus mystery,

  • we all know Wormy,

  • a highly emotive worm turned harmless butterfly.

  • But was Wormy the Butterfly really harmless?

  • It looks harmless.

  • It's kind of cute.

  • Or was he hiding strange supernatural powers?

  • If the citizens truly had nothing to fear,

  • then explain this meteor striking the underwater city!

  • Or the citizens suddenly floating into the sky!

  • Is this some strange coincidence or should we fear Wormy after all?

  • File this one under A for...

  • Ahhhhhhhh!

  • Have you seen something strange under the sea?

  • Leave us a comment and tune in next time for more investigations

  • that will blow your pores, strip your scales and flip your fins.

  • Like, subscribe and remember,

  • if the pineapple fits, live in it.

Bikini Bottom, one week before hibernation season.
