The internet urban legend surrounding Mereana Mordegard Glesgorv says that the video is a horrific manifestation of evil, and if you see, you will panic ominously in horror, and will grab and took it off your own eyes, as a result, then sent by mail to YouTube. According to the legend, the very first person who watched the video screamed in horror, gouged out his own eyes in panic, and soon afterwards sent them by mail to the YouTube headquarters. After a few more people have done this, YouTube decided to stream a softer version of the video – where literally anything relevant happens –, in order to satisfy the curiosity of individuals searching for Mereana Mordegard Glesgorv, hoping these people will not feel the need to search for the original video. Apparently, this hasn’t solved the problem, and as the video went viral, all individuals who subsequently saw it continued the ritual to panic, scream in horrifying agony, and gouge out their own eyes soon after seeing it, sending both eyes by mail to YouTube afterwards. In a few months, YouTube received approximately two hundred pairs of eyes, and had to deal with a major operation in order to cover up what was really going on. A search operation was done in order to track the individual who supposedly downloaded the video on YouTube, to no avail. Sometime later, someone discovered the man on which the face on the video was based, but to this date his name remains unknown.
Well, this is certainly the most funny and hilarious internet urban legend of all times, to say the least. Thinking about it, it makes me want to laugh so badly. Who created this joke? And more important, who took it seriously? If there is any horror in the video, it is subjective, and psychologically induced by the very own premise that you will gouge out your own eyes. As a matter of fact, all that you have is a boring video, dull and monotonous, and you will forget about it just a few minutes after seeing it. The legend it is way more entertaining than the video itself.
Nevertheless, Mereana Mordegard Glesgorv is a great example of the power of the internet. You can do yourself a mediocre and dull video, but if you create a powerful, compelling and appealing story behind it, and spread it like dark, insane, and mysterious creepypasta, based – first and foremost – on a “true story”, you will always find a lot of people predisposed to believe. The world is full of easily impressionable individuals, with a lot of imagination, so it is not as hard as you might think to spread ahead this kind of rumor, especially in the World Wide Web, a fertile ground for this kind of thing.
Well, below, there is the video for you to see, and stood to your own conclusions. But be cool, nothing will happen to you. I seriously doubt that you will find the video so horrifying, to the point of took it off your own eyes. I really don’t think that any time soon YouTube staff will open up a package with your eyes on it.
