Extra note about this question ('The type that has not been named') :

Tried but didn't get anywhere? Well, we're going to add, almost daily, additional clues for the same (cryptic, audio, video, a random picture that aids the connect, new clues or more detailed info about earlier clues) till we see a good number of people cracking it.
