  • *The "Caillou Ni Hao" meme but it's BDG* "Brian!!" Brian had finally uploaded another video. The fanbase was very happy to see him! ["Caillou! Ni Hao!"] *The video is horror* The fanbase: ":D...what?" (I've just recently realized how good his horror is and it's just as good as his comedy, and I'm not sure how to feel about that lol)

  • My sister was my favorite person in the world, it broke my heart that she left so young. She wrote her 4 year old son birthday letters till he is 18. She also recorded a video for him to watch when he is an adult. We, the family along with her husband, have been wondering if we should give him these letters and that video, she herself had doubts about him having them. We are hesitant because he might have a better chance at moving on, this youtube video encapsulates well why we are so hesitant.

  • The little "you're not-" at 7:12 after the long pause and weird look from the dad. What was that about? He's not what? Jake? Who is it watching the tape then? Idk, am I overthinking. Seems like that part is important, its the only shot not inside the bedroom, but in the hallway.

  • This video is amazing and incredibly unsettling. There is one thing that just won’t leave me alone. Who or what is watching the tape? The scene that started this horrifying thought is 7:10 when the dad slowly realizes he may have been interacting with something beyond his understanding. “Your not-“ and the scene before it where he hyperventilates and disappears. Every scene after the dad is no longer a loving father but instead acts like a frightened animal. His first instinct is fear, then rage, and he finally gives up in the end.

  • Personally, I think that Jake's father because of some sort of breathing issue, and this "tape" is Jake's way of replaying his memories with his father, his way of handling the trauma. The reason it gets more and more broken is that his memory is faulty, and he remembers the day his dad died of the breathing problem(the day this tape takes place) differently. The last version is the true one. It wasn't a special day, nothing special happened, no way of knowing what was going to happen. Jake came to terms with that after "seeing" the last version, so he stops replaying.

  • Alright theory time: Theory 1: Jake, the child found this tape which happens just before/as a house invader kills his mother and father, since Jake lost his mother and father at such a young age he is obviously gonna be fucked up, so when he watches it it seems he has schizophrenia trying desperately to have his father back but there's no hope for him and he comes to terms with it, I can't explain the shadow on the left with this theory though Theory 2: The home invader is watching the tape that was just recorded and the dad is some sort of spirit that is trying to contact Jake as he thinks it is his him but in reality Jake is dead from the home invader that explains why he says "You're not" as he could be saying you're not Jake and it also explains why in the next bit he is enraged at the home invader and since the home invader has just seen this tape it explains why the dad is so surprised it's a grown up watching it then at the end him walking down the hallway into the mysterious room followed by the character on the side could be the spirit wanting to take revenge

  • i hate horror because many times now a days it devolves into gore and jump scares. as unsettling as these horror inspired videos that brian and karen keep making, I find something comforting in the fact that I know there will be nothing like that. its all psychological horror.

  • okay so, what i got from this is there was a home invasion of some kind, a burglary that went horribly wrong. This "tape" is a metaphor for the memory jake has of that day, and i don't remember who told me this or where I'd read it but apparently when you remember something, you're not recounting the actual event, you're thinking of the last time you'd remembered that event. so, of course, every time your remembering something, that gets warped ever so slightly. it's like broken telephone, with one person and the message being the memory itself. as jake remembers the day, the memory of the home invasion (whether or not it happened on the same day) also trickle in, the feeling of terror his father probably felt as it happened and his imagining of it, so it gets warped with each memory, until the memory itself has changed completely from one of happiness to one of horror.
