When Markiplier and CrankGamePlays put up the channel Unus Annus, they had two big rules.
1. They would be uploading daily for 365 day.
2. After those 365 days, the channel would be deleted and disappear forever.
That is a BIG play. All that work just to have it disappear? It is a bold and simple premise for a channel... except nothing is ever that simple, is it? Therosits, I have watched and analyzed all of the uploads on the channel and I've come to one BIG conclusion. There is something SECRET hiding in the videos of Unus Annus. A secret that someone has been trying to tell us since the beginning. A secret that, just maybe, could save Mark, Ethan, and Unus Annus before the clock runs out.

"What is your purpose here, Arisen? If you had sought to live, you had naught but run and hide yourself away. But then tell me, child of man... What does it mean to live in truth? To wage war against the passing of days? To pray to the unseen for a few breaths more? To raise grand cities from stone and spawn new life in turn? Mankind has done this, yes, and more. But is the tapestry you weave truly of your own design?" -Grigori, Dragon's Dogma His speech is one that sends a chill up my spine and can even bring a tear to my eye. It is thought provoking, the whole game is. This episode made me think of that, so I decided to share.

In the description of I believe the pain scale video (I dont remember exactly) it said this "Here at Unus Annus the end is nigh... when the time hits zero we will cease to exist is it fake? Is this a simulation? Can anybody hear me? My name is... [FILE DELETED]" which I'm pretty sure also alluded to "the man trying to stop the clock" aka Marc. Just something I noticed when I fired watched the video, I even commented it on the original before the channel met its unruly demise. Anyway thank you for listening to my Ted talk

0:51 so we're just going to disregard the fact that there's a 420 and a 69 there?

Technically the clock did stop during the stream when the tv was accidentally unplugged. But then they just plugged it back in. The clock did stop, but no one said it would stay stopped. ⌛️ Memento Mori.

Ok is it me or right before MatPat explained why Marks pee is foaming, ( something I thought I'd never say ) when MatPat was talking, it glitched and said "dead, die, you will die." I rewound the video and it didnt say that....

at first when the video started out i though that the channel might be a symbol for them both having to either slowdown their channels or stop or they know vainly what time their channels will fall out of favor and they wanted to give a hint on it but this was still a really good theory and i love watching your vids - a pansexual nerd

I have a little mini theory: Unus annus came back I think that they have been reborn after many deaths. I don’t really know the rest but that’s all I have. They arose from the grave for one more year

I thankyou for shedding light on this. Traveling the spiritualist path made me theorize Unnus Annus's content had bigger meaning. Like a story with purpose is being told. I'm glad to see the pieces fit together this way. Thankyou for making this clear and concise. Very insightful and entertaining. I love this.

I think amy is the death person you're talking about, this is because you said that death is the one who presses the button, and in the last minutes of Unnus Annus, Amy was the one to press the button.

The timer in their videos is kinda like the horror movie called countdown. If you haven't seen the movie it is just all about an app where if you download it it gives you a timer of when you are going to die. What kills you is a fictional demon called oshin.
