Mike was an animator for the TV/internet sensation, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. He also animates Anime cartoons... for the 'dark' parts (blood, gore). He LOVES horror movies. What disturbs me the most about him was that he thinks the gore-fic Cupcakes really shows the 'true side' of Pinkie Pie. His favorite character was Derpy Hooves.
One time he called me up asking if I could come down to his house to watch 'the episode that 'explains' his hatred for the people who thought Derpy's name should be changed because they thought it 'offends disabled people.
When I got there he wasn't there. All that was there was a medium-sized TV with VCR and of course, a VHS tape with a note that said 'Derpy's Special Surprise' on it. I picked it up and placed it in the VCR and waited.
It began with the opening normally, which I expected. It began with a black screen and a flash of a picture of something.... I rewinded it. It was just a regular picture of Derpy like the one above. It then switched to Derpy walking up to Sugarcube Corner where she turned to Pinkie Pie and asked "Muffins?" then Pinkie sadly stared at her and said "sorry, no muffins, only cupcakes!" Derpy then scowled at her and walked angerly out the door.
It then cut to Derpy outside Pinkie's window with eyes like Pinkie did when she went crazy in 'Party Of One'. She quickly ran into her room and disappeared into the kitchen when she was coming back with something... a knife, a freakish dark little rhyme was sung by a little girl: "Derpy Derpy Doo I'm going to kill you"
Derpy smiled a freaky evil smile as she began to kill Pinkie by cutting open her chest, I mean ABOUT to cut open her chest as she opened her eyes and screamed. Derpy ran out of the room leaving Pinkie lying on her back horrified (and the knife lying on the floor) and brought a big bomb that looked like a cupcake, with the cherry stem slowly flaring away. She shoved it down Pinkie's throat. Pinkie looked scared to death as she heard a beeping noise that lasted only 30 seconds before her stomach exploded with her blood, guts, and intestines flew onto the still creepy-smiling, small-pupiled Derpy. I vomited immediately on the floor.
It then cut to a sad pony funeral with the Mane 6, (now the Mane 5) crying at the loss of their bouncy pink friend. 'THE END' flashed upon the screen in Pinkie Pie's blood.
I felt sick as I got a phone call from one of Mike's friends who said they called the police when they stumbled upon the tape and gotten Mike put in a mental institution, explaining why Mike wasn't there. The weird part was that he told me he showed the police the tape and that they destroyed it. I can still here that awful song in my dreams...
I finally tried to eject it, but it wasn't there any more.
Was I crazy? Are we all crazy? I just don't know....
