SB Thoughts:

00: getting straight to the point

:35 is this a trailer for the new Mormon version of Blair Witch?

:53 Ima go ahead and make the claim that people who just want to chat don’t start by calling someone “pig boy”

1:05 like, why, tho?

3:24 “sup, bitch? you about to get tree beat.”

3:29 “time to run to home to the father who’s approval I desperately strive to attain.”

SB Thoughts:

2:23 I think they forgot something –

3:50 “oh, we’re just gonna go die respective horrible deaths”

4:30 “oh thank god she came over — I actually don’t know how to play the guitar.”

5:35 “…like we gone die right now.”

7:13 who are they fooling…these people are all almost 30.

8:18 “…so I took his leg so he couldn’t”

9:07 “i’ll get in..but i’ll go at a sad guy pace”

9:45 attack hug

10:47 let’s scared make-out

10:49 wait..so uh..what?

12:56 that’s some straight horror movie logic tho

13:06 yoink

13:37 salad fingers, god damnit.

13:48 slenderman’s nudist cousin

Lesson: Slenderman has a family.

SB Thoughts:

:43 this has a Neverending Story vibe to it

1:14 sweaty palms

1:54 oh yeah, that leg is DEFINITELY broken

2:08 “this is fine. I’m fine.”

3:12 if you die, I die too. this weightlessness is deafening

3:51 “reallllly don’t need your shit right now fingers”

4:33 survey says: those will not bend

5:15 don’t do it.

6:10 I’m sure those body-less blood shapes mean nothing. Don’t read into it so much.

6:40 EVERYBODY JUST STAY COOL; We [the collective viewership] have got this under control

7:10 now you’re just being negative.

7:27 gravity, please don’t.

7:33 is somebody just finger-painting over there now? this is getting more elaborate

8:09 oh no, OH, [OHHH NOOO.] NOOOOOOO OHNOOOOOOOO

8:24 Nature, you are a cruel mistress.

9:00 now is not the time to get our hands all tangled in a chain, my dear

9:12 or maybe I know nothing of friction

9:21 ugh

Lesson: The relentlessly hopeful human spirit haunts us all.
