Lolwat? It's not about any shortcuts, seeing an address and a signed message does not give any advantage in looking for the seed word. It just proves you actually have the bitcoins you said are the reward. That's the least you can do. Otherwise it's not a mystery, it's most likely trolling - anyone can say there is a bitcoin hidden in their comment/blog/video, good luck finding it... wasting people's time on looking for something that does not exist. Fun is when the probability of winning/finding something is low but is guaranteed that the reward is really there.
