SuperMario64BigStarSecret-Thumbnail.png

The video's thumbnail as found on a Facebook page.

Status: Partially Found

On August 15th, 2007, a YouTube user by the name of LotusMan17 uploaded a screamer video by the name of "Super Mario 64 big star secret".[1] It would later be deleted from his channel in late-2012.

Despite the video's short availability, it was quite popular, with the last known archive of the video showing that it garnered upwards of 698,316 views (possibly having even more before it was deleted), and was also shared on many forums to try and trick other users into getting jumpscared.

The Video[edit | edit source]

The video was edited with Windows Movie Maker 2, containing several scrolling text titles to provide steps on how to unlock Luigi.

In the video, Lotus had recorded the screen of his computer with a flip phone (believed to be a Motorola RAZR V3) to "give it a more genuine look." He had modified the castle with the level editor "Toad’s Tool 64" to add a door to the right wall next to the main lobby’s staircase and to change Mario’s shirt to blue and his overalls to black. A few other changes were made in the level editor, such as the swapping of the castle’s gray brick texture to a black one that Lotus himself created in MS Paint.

The video was eventually muted to avoid copyright but was eventually AudioSwapped. Most people recall hearing "Dreamscape" by 009 Sound System; however, after some digging into several comments, it was thought that the actual song that was likely used was "Database" by Alexander Perls, who was also the creator of 009 Sound System. Lotus recalls having been emailed an offer to put a song on his video in exchange for roughly $40, which he gladly took. However, that didn’t turn out to be the song- it was Bring Me To Life by Evanescence, as stated in the credits.

The video began in the starting area of the game, with Mario running into the castle. Many recalled a part of the video taking place in the level Bob-Omb Battlefield, but after an interview with Lotus, this was not true. The entire video took place inside the castle, with the majority of it being inside the courtyard.

Several text prompts (made with Windows Movie Maker titles) would occasionally show up to provide more steps to "unlock Luigi." Many can recall a step to "kick a Boo." The original uploader (Lotus) recalls a step to run around the fountain a certain amount of times. After a few more minutes worth of steps, a final text prompt shows up, saying something along the lines of "Press A on this wall," which was then followed up with an abrupt cut to the zombie jumpscare from the end of the infamous K-Fee coffee commercial.

Availability[edit | edit source]

After contacting Lotus himself, he stated that he might have deleted it accidentally; but after finding an updated description of the video on a Facebook page made in late 2011, the video was most likely deleted purposely due to the large volume of hate and death threats he had received because of the video.

The updated description read:

"This video was done out of complete boredom, and yet people still wish to leave hateful comments. Therefore commenting has been disabled."

The Internet Archive admins have confirmed that the video is not in their archives.

The only surviving footage of the video can be seen in a low-quality reaction video titled "Little brother getting scared. Late reaction", which shows roughly 8 seconds of the start, and the last 20 seconds of the video.
