i hope the video starts off with mark lying dead on the ground, fade in a voice over saying –
“That’s me. Markiplier. I bet you’re wondering how i got here? Well, it all started when,”
Hello everybody, my name is Markiplier and Im dying
yep, that’s me. you’re probably wondering how i ended up in this situation
That would actually be a terrific opening, essentially being a send-up of The Lovely Bones.
Which, if you didn’t know, The Lovely Bones is a book/movie narrated by the spirit of a dead girl who’s trying to find out who killed her… ‘cos she didn’t see her attacker’s face while she was still alive. Getting justice for her murder is her “unfinished business,” if you will; the reason she’s floating around on Earth still. She’ll only be able to move on to the afterlife when her murder is solved.
So take a bit of that. Then throw in a little Clue-style multiple endings, where anyone could have done it, but only one person did… and I think we have the perfect Spook Season diversion.
