@pokemon95101 submitted: What if Wilford Warfstache is Mark’s imaginary friend from when he was little that got corrupted. Hear me out, he looks too nice and whimsical from the outside like he’s made for children yet he kills people? He has a speech impediment like Mark did when he was young, looks exactly like him but with a mustache you know ‘how all men should be’ or whatever. But he also seems to display some sort of femininity. If he’s an imaginary friend that means his power is only limited by his creator’s imagination which is why he never faces the consiquenses of the murders and never dies. That’s why he has so many fucking professions. What happens when your a kid you play pretend. ‘i wanna be a doctor, i wanna be this or that’ Warf can do that cause he’s just playing pretend
and the feminity shit? You’re a kid struggling with your identity you just like what you like and you experiment. Also, he started pretty early in Mark’s YouTube carrier being the oldest ego. This was the time when Mark’s creativity and imagination started really going again as he cranked out new ideas for content. ‘But how did he get curropted?’ you ask. Good question. When you grow up you forget about your imaginary friends. Warf didn’t like the fact that he was getting pushed aside and forgotten. Wilford was Mark’s imaginary friend. That means that Mark was his only friend, his best buddy. If Mark forgets about him then he has no one. So he starts lashing out as he becomes more real. And then Mark remembers him when the channel begins and he comes to life. Mark is delighted at first, (ever the sentimental type) he missed this old guy! But Wilf is different, more volatile, prone to violent outbursts but Mark rolls with the ideas that are coming along and eventually the fully fleshed character of Wilford Warfstache is born. He was one of Mark’s main sources of comfort through the hell that is puberty but people kept saying that he was too old to have an imaginary friend and that he should let Warf go, and eventually, he did. But Warf didn’t like this. I would love this theory to be true just cause of all the sappy ‘Wilford hanging with kid Mark and telling him it’ll be alright and hanging out with him and playing pretend’
Thank you btw! You’re super nice.
