"- - -" is the thirteenth video in the EverymanHYBRID series and the second of the "hidden" videos. Jeff and Vince argue over whether or not to continue the series and Evan posits the theory that the Slenderman is real.
No description available.
[Video opens with a brief clip from A Day in the Life. Jeff and Evan are walking down a path in a grassy field towards a tree.]
[One of the guy's houses, probably Jeff’s. Evan is wearing a Freddy Krueger glove.]
Evan: Roaahhh… [he starts clinking the blades together] Freddy Krueger…
[Jeff and Vince start arguing in the background]
Evan: How sweet dark meat…
Vince: … for one- two little incidents!
Evan: [cheerfully] Oh, what’s up brothers?
Vince: … you’re fucking out!
Jeff: Where’s- where’s it gonna to go from there, dude, where-
[The footage from A Day in the Life, but it has been dubbed over (or could be a continuation of that clip). Someone is giggling in the background.]
Vince: Just close your eyes and pretend it’s a bad dream.
[Back to the crew again]
Jeff: Where’s it gonna to go?
Vince: [exasperated] We just keep going, we do what we always do, and we truck on.
Jeff: Yeah, and where has that gotten us man?
Evan: Wha- what are we talking about here?
Vince: He’s talking about the-
Jeff: The little shrine [gestures off-screen] in my- in the back room!
Vince: And he’s-
[Cut, a bunch of papers rolled up together hit the floor.]
[Cut to more previously unseen clips from A Day in the Life. A brief clip of the grassy field, then a clip of Jessa’s mud splattered legs.]
Jeff: Jessalyn! [laughter]
[Cut back to the crew]
Vince: -making a big deal out of it. Evan – same thing happened to him, same sort of situation and he’s a fucking champ and we’re still putting out videos.
Jeff: And what- what’s going to happen when it comes after you? I mean, it’s going a little psycho here now.
Vince: We’ll keep going! We’ll keep going!
Jeff: Well, okay-
Vince: Because- Alex would have done that. Alex did that.
Jeff: Alex could’ve done – he would have done it. He wasn’t home! I told you this!
Vince: Well, who did this? Do you think-?
Jeff: I don’t-
[A clip of Vince jogging from The Night Jog slowed down.]
[Cut to a porch or hallway on the outside of an abandoned building. Whoever is holding the camera is breathing loudly and stomping around heavily.]
[Another set of A Day in the Life clips. The grassy field, then Jessa, Evan, and Jeff are examining an old house with plastic orange construction netting around it.]
[Back to the crew, still arguing]
Jeff: I don’t know dude!
Vince: -could really be him?
Jeff: I don’t know; it could’ve been him, but it wasn’t! He wasn’t even in the state at that time, he was with his friends.
Vince: [sighs in exasperation] Then-
[Jump cut. Evan drags his Freddy Kruger claws across the table.]
Jeff: It’s not re- he doesn’t exist, dude, he doesn’t exist!
Vince: Well, right now that’s-
[Cut to a shot of a sign on the trail and a large tree.]
Evan: What is Vinny doing? [laughs]
[Cut to more footage of the abandoned house.]
Jeff: What do want me to say?
[Cut to Vince giving Evan a piggyback ride. Evan yells and pretends to fall off.]
[Back to the crew again]
Vince: [sighs] He’s trying to let him win! If we go on with this, if we shut down-
Evan: Trying to let who win?
Vince: Whoever’s doing this!
[Cut back to the interior of the porch of the abandoned house. The camera operator gets to the end of the small hallway and turns around abruptly to look back down the porch.]
[There is a clip from the beginning of 78of76.avi, Evan and Jeff being filmed from above. They are standing at a cellar door to an abandoned house. Jessa looks down from above.]
Evan: Should we do it? Should we knock?
Jeff: Nah dude. [He fiddles with the door knob briefly]
[Cut to the HYBRIDs again]
Vince: He’s gonna let this fucker win if we shut down these videos.
Evan: Whether it be supernatural or-
Jeff: It’s not- I’m not some renegade here-
Vince: [to Evan] Alright, don’t-
Jeff: I mean, this if for our sa- I don’t- we- I love those- all these people talking, man, I love them. But we- this ain’t worth it, man! This- this ain’t worth it.
Evan: It’s… not like you can change it now.
Vince: Exactly! If- if we stop now, it’ll keep happening.
[A clip of the abandoned house’s old porch, the construction netting is visible.]
?: He used to love it here.
?: Someone should just walk back.
Evan: Somebody’s here?
[Cut back to the HYBRIDs]
Vince: -whatever’s happening. Because this person’s not going to stop. He went to Evan, we gave them the warning, and now he’s fucking with you. We can’t stop.
Jeff: Well… I’m done. Dude, I’m.... screw this!
Vince: Evan, turn this fucking thing off.
[Vince turns the camera off, but you can hear Evan chuckle quietly right before that]
[Back to the porch of the abandoned house. The camera operator stomps back down the porch and into the sunlight.]
[The crew again. Jeff is sitting on the floor, his back to the wall.]
Jeff: I’m sorry guys.
Vince: Jeff, don’t worry about it. We- we get this. [Jumpcut] He’s had this happen before.
Evan: Yes sir.
Vince: And you know, the way that I see it is… I mean, I honestly thought it would be over with Evan, but it seems like… it’s come full circle.
Jeff: It just sounds like we’re just running around doing the same thing over and over again.
Vince: I know, but I honestly feel like we have to finish these videos. We have to do it. There’s just no other option; we have to do this. Because if we stop, he has won and he might come back – whoever this is – and keep doing it, even though the videos are done.
[A brief shot of a busy street, raining.]
[Back to the HYBRIDS]
Vince: …because it’s already started.
Jeff: [muttering] Sorry man.
Vince: Ya know?
Jeff: Yeah, uh, I don’t-
Vince: So, uh, let’s just- let’s just put a few out, and if something happens, I promise we’ll stop. We’ll stop there, no questions asked, I won’t push it any further, we’ll just stop.
Jeff: [half-heartedly] Alright.
Vince: But I say that we keep going, just a few more.
Evan: You know… I mean, on my piece, you know, speaking uh… talking crazy here from what you guys would probably consider, but um-
[Cut to the parking lot of the park, daylight. Then interior of a car, night, no audio.]
[Back to the crew]
Evan: Based on what I’ve seen and based on what you guys have seen and what we’ve all experienced with the trying to edit the videos and you know, the shit that we’ve seen and heard… I mean… do you figure that maybe it’s possible that this is, um-
[Cut to Jeff's feet, standing on the porch of the abandoned house. No audio.]
[Cut to Jeff and Evan at the cellar door. They kick in the door.]
