Interesting fact: it's actually not a link but the entire image encoded in base64. Base 64 is like base 10 (decimal, normal numbers) or base 2 (binary, ones and zeroes), but then using 64 different characters. So what the AI is trying to do here is literally generate a valid PNG image encoded in text, not just a link.

EDIT: Additionally, it could technically be valid to have such a repeating value (assuming all the PNG info makes sense). The background could simply be a solid colour which leads to this pattern, or it could be dithered which might produce such a pattern. I'm not knowledgeable enough on PNG to know whether that makes sense tho. It's probably just the AI being silly
