Um, is this real and what does it mean for showtime?

So aparently this showed up on pepsi9072's channel as a 2019 logo for aparently showtime. I'm confused what it is supposed to be and why its being used. Can someone explain why showtime is doing this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zeu9E5xCtJI

I admit that 22 years is a long time for a logo, but I have no source that signifies if this is a new logo. I believe this is a bumper for the old logo.

Yeah, but why would showtime use it in 2019? The logo is a version of the 1987 logo used mainly before it transitions to whatever special presentation bumper the program was. I guess we will have to wait and see.

I’m still pretty sure it’s either fake or wrong, but I could be wrong. I’m checking it out in an hour when they have commercials, I get Showtime.

I turned on Showtime earlier and they are still using the 1997 logo. I have come to the conclusion that that bumper is fake.

The show its from (Black Monday) is a show set in the late 1980's (specifically during or before October 19, 1987). This is only a 1980's themed logo.

Ok, I can confirm its from Black Monday, but the logo isn't one seen before. The time the logo seen in the throwback logo was used had a different animation and music than what was shown in the show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NqY4piucFk It does make me question if the logo will come back to showtime later on.
