(A YouTube video showing Joe and Eric seated at a table) Joe: Hi to all J and E productions fans. First of all I, Joe McGlenn, and my partner, Eric O Myers, would like to thank all of you guys for subscribing and helping us get over a million subscribers. Without you we wouldn t have been able to continue our uploads. Today s video will be going out to all of our subscribers, especially the ones here, in Bullhead City, Nevada. Eric: This video will be about the used-to-be-a-hobo musical sensation herself, II-I mean, himself, Justin Bieber. Basically he is a Canadian singer who has the voice of a 9-year-old girl and looks like an 11-year-old girl. He has become a young millionaire lately. But what if his divorced mother wants all the money for herself? (Shows a video of Joe McGlenn sleeping on the floor. He wakes up) Joe: Hey guys! It s me Justin. I m all tied up, and I don t know where I am. I was supposed to be in Canada singing for all my fans. I hope someone finds me. What if no one is looking? I need to find a way out, or else I will die of hunger. (Runs around like crazy) Last time my mom locked me up; she was talking on the phone. She said it had nothing to do with their divorce. People say they divorced because of my squeaky voice. I need to kill my mom! Maybe I ll shoot her. But where will I find the gun? I think my dad has one. But he lives somewhere else. How will I find him? I need to get out of here first. (Runs around like crazy) Maybe I can dig my way out. (Digs with his hands and mouth. Takes a strand of hair from his mouth) Ewww! Armpit hair! I think I found my way out! Look! A door!
(Running outside) I m out! I m out! Freedom! Now I should find a bus to Canada. Eric: Yo Justin! Joe: Who are you? Eric: Ma name is Kevin and JnE productions sent me to do them a small little favor.
Joe: Are you going to take me to my fans? Eric: Is the Grim Reaper your fan?
Joe: No. Eric: Well, that s who you are going to! (Takes out a pistol and shoots a couple times) Joe: Why did you do that? Eric: You idiot, why won t you die? (Emptying his bullets on Joe) Joe: I will never die! (Aims a gun at Eric) Eric: Aww man!
(The children are seated at a table) Joe: Hi to all JnE productions fans! Today s video will be something you have never expected to see: an expedition to place that is sealed by the government. So, 2 days ago I was so bored that I went on Google Earth to find our town, just like everybody else, and then suddenly out of nowhere I
saw this huge strip of land that is absolutely white and on it there is a simple sentence on it: Blocked by United States Ministry of Defense. (Shows a picture of the area) Eric: So, we decide to go there and see what the government has blocked from its people. We asked a lot of adults about the place, but none of them know anything about the place. The place is in the middle of the desert and has only one road that leads into it. This road is at the farthest side of the area so we may have to get in from the sides. Joe: Let s go next week? I have exams this week. Eric: Friday night? Joe: Ok then. We are going next Friday (Looks at his watch) on the 26th of February. Can you get permission from your parents? Eric: Duh! Joe: Good enough.
(The camera is with Joe. He exits his house and begins walking along the sidewalk. He turns the camera to his face.) Joe: It s cool night and I m on my way to meet Eric behind Wal-Mart. (The camera shows his clock which shows 7:59)
(The camera turns the corner and sees Eric listening to music, who does not know that Joe is there) Joe: Sup?
Eric: Good, you? Joe: Same here. I was about to get grounded because of my math exam I got a D on. Eric: Why? Didn t you study? Joe: Are we going to talk about school or go to the god damn place? Eric: Dude, calm down. What did you bring with you? Joe: Hold the camera for a sec. Eric: Is it on record? Joe: Yup. I got my iPod, some snacks, and my father s hunting knife. What did you get? Eric: Nothing really. Do you see a bag with me? Joe: Ok. Then you will take the knife. Eric: Ok. What time is it? Joe: About a quarter passed eight. Wait let me check. It is exactly 8:13. Eric: Good, let s go. Joe: Could you close the camera and give it to me?
Eric: Where is the On/Off button? Oh here it is.
(Camera shows Eric in front a fence. There is a sign on the fence: WARNING: This area is proclaimed off-limits by the United States of America Ministry of Defense) Eric: What the hell? Blah, blah, blah off limits by US Ministry of Defense? Joe: Let s not go. I didn t like this place. No really, I didn t like it.
Eric: I thought you liked adventure? Who will catch us? You were the one that promised our viewers an expedition here. If you will be a pussy I will go by myself. Joe: Dude, you misunderstood me! Why shouldn t I come with you? Eric: I thought so. I ll go first. Good enough. (Throws Joe s bag over the fence and starts climbing) Joe: What the heck s your problem? If you broke my iPod, you re paying for it! Eric: Calm down man, calm down. Joe: What will you do with the barbed wire? Oh yeah, could you take the camera? Eric: Well, that s when the Swiss army knife comes handy. Will you ever pass the camera? Joe: Oh wait, let me close it.
(Eric is on the other time of the side of the fence. Joe is climbing) Joe: We got everything? Yup, ok let s roll. Eric: And now we have passed the fence and are going deeper inside the restricted zone. Joe: Eric, why are you filming this? Eric: I want our viewers to see everything we see and do. Joe: Dude, we are not reporters. I am going to edit out this part anyway. Eric: What the heck? Don t you want people to see everything that happen here?
Joe: I just don t want every single little to go on YouTube. That s it. Not that I do not want people to see this. Eric: Ok, good. Joe: Let s just open the camera every 30 minutes or when something important happens. Eric: Ok, get the bags and let s go.
Eric: So we have been walking for the last 30 minutes and there is nothing in sight. Hey Joe, what time is it? (Joe shows his iPhone) So the time is 20:52, but here is no signal? Are we that far away from the city? Joe: Wait, what? What the heck? No coverage? Eric: It may be a virus. It happens when you jailbreak your iPhone. Can you see where we exactly are on your GPS? Joe: No network coverage? What s wrong with this phone? Eric: Maybe there just is no coverage. Wait, let me check my phone. I don t have coverage either. Screw the signal. We can find the fence anyway. Just open some music. Joe: What do you want? Eric: Justin Bieber! Joe: Hell no! (Both laugh) Eric: Open Taio Cruz or something. NOT Dustbin Bieber!
Joe: Let s see. IPod, artists, T, Taio Cruz. Here, Break Your Heart feat Ludacris. Eric: C mon! Way to go.
(There is a big metal box on the floor) Joe: It looks like we have encountered a huge metal box that belongs to H-E-CU? What in the world is HECU? Eric: Let s open it! Joe: It may be a death trap! Eric: (Taking out the hunting knife) This is what we need. (Places the knife on the keyhole and hits the knife. The lock falls on the ground, broken) Let s see what we got. (There is a shotgun, a box of shot shells, 2 pistols, and 4 magazines. He takes out the shotgun) Damn! Joe: Hell yeah, dual pistols! I ve always wanted something like this. Do you know how to use the shotgun? Eric: Of course. My dad has one and I ve used it many times. Joe: Cool. Why don t you put the magazines and shot shells in my bag? Eric: Okay man.
(Camera opens in a hurry)
Eric: Open the camera! Quick! Joe: Here, we are hearing moaning sounds that seem to be getting closer for the last minute. What do you think it is, Eric? Eric: Frankenstein, maybe? (Both laugh) There it is! Joe: Let s see (Zooms and focuses on the zombie) What the hell is that? Eric: Let me see. Give me the camera. Wooah! That s a zombie! Just like the ones in Resident Evil. Joe: Yeah right! Here, you keep the camera and hand over the shotgun. Eric: Here you go. Don t let it bite. Joe: Does it say stupid on my forehead? Eric: I want to see what you can do. Joe: I m sure I can do more than what you can. (Empties 3 shells on the zombie but the zombie keeps on advancing while Joe is scrambling for bullets) Ah shish! I m out of ammo! Eric: Joe! Duck! (Eric shoots the zombie in the head with the pistol) Joe: Oh my God! You saved my life! Thank you so much! Eric: I believe you would do the same thing for me so no problem.
Joe: Yeah, sure. Eric: Let s see what we got here. Joe: Hmmm. Looks like some kind of zombie soldier. Should have some kind of name tag. Eric: John Anderson. Born 1980. H-E-C-U 2nd battalion. What is the HECU for god s sake? Joe: Hamburger Eating Cats Union? Eric: Let s get serious. It should be some sort of army unit, but I m not sure what. Joe: It has gun wounds and bite marks. Looks like the zombies in I Am Legend. Eric: So are we the Will Smiths of this place? Joe: Damn this place is messed up. We have to get back home. Eric: Keep the dog tag, Joe. Just in case.
(Camera shows Joe standing with the shotgun in his hands. There are distant sounds of automatic weapons, moaning, and soldiers shouting) Joe: We are about 5 minutes away from where Eric shot a zombie and as you hear there are lots of gun shots and moans. We think it is the HECU fighting zombies. Eric: Would they kill us? Joe: They don t seem to be a threat for now. If we don t get out of here quickly, we may be the next to be killed. Eric, close that camera and get away before they do.
(Eric is crouching)
Eric: Get down, get down! Joe: Ok, I m not deaf. Eric: Did you see that? Joe: I m not blind either. Eric: Should we take it down. Joe: Let s get serious. You take the shotgun. I will take the pistols. Shoot its legs, but don t kill it, OK? Eric: Depends. Joe: Ok then, let s go. (There is a unarmed soldier walking in the distance) Eric: Move slowly. Joe: Affirmative. (They get really close as Eric aims his weapon. He shoots) Joe: He is down! (Both run toward soldier) Joe: Good shot Eric! Legs only. (The soldier who was facing the ground turns around and is shocked by the presence of the children) Soldier: Who are you!?
Joe: Calm down bro. I am Joe McGlenn and he is Eric O Myers. S: What are you doing here?
Eric: Just looking around for some zombies. Sounds reasonable, eh? Say dude: What were all those shootings? And those zombies? And who are you?
I m Paul Smith from the HECU.
Joe: And the HECU is? S: Hazardous Environment Combat Unit.
Joe: Also, those creatures? S: Zombies. During the Cold War, US planned to create a biological weapon to use against Russia. It was called Operation: Z. Their plans backfired. The virus infected other people through the test subjects. Most of them were soldiers given the virus in an energy drink. Unable to control the virus, Ministry of Defense placed the victims in camps and dedicated an army unit to secure them.
Eric: This is so inhumane! S: The area is cut off from the rest of the world by media bans and jammers.
Joe: That explains why our phones didn t work. Eric: I have a question: How do you deal with these things? S: Zombies are creatures that use their senses only to find flesh to eat. You have to destroy their brain to kill them. If you directly contact their bodily fluids you will become a zombie in the next 23 hours.
Eric: You still didn t say anything about the battle that was 15 minutes ago. S: Our team was attacked by a hoard of approximately 60 zombies. I was the only one to survive. Now that I m bitten, I won t survive either.
Joe: Do you know John Anderson? S: Yes. A really good friend of mine. He used to be in my team. As far as I know he was shot last week. God bless his soul. How do you know him?
Eric: He attacked us, so I killed him. S: Can I have your gun, Joe?
Eric: You want to shoot us? S: I could have killed you the first time I saw you guys. Why should I now? (Takes pistol from Joe) Get out of this place as soon as you can! It s dangerous here! Rest in peace, Paul. (Suicides) Joe: What-the-heck-was-that? Eric: C mon Joe, we have to get out of here. Joe: I m not going anywhere before I take this. (Picks up the soldier s Micro-Uzi) Now we can go.
(Eric has the shotgun. There are ~10 zombies in the distance) Joe: (Focusing on the zombies) I think this explains it all. You ready Eric? Eric: Anytime. (Joe places the camera on the floor and sets off to kill zombies with Eric. They begin shooting the zombies, but due to his firepower Joe is able to kill zombies quickly. After killing all, they come back to the camera) Eric: I m bit! Joe: Let me see. Where? Eric: (Pulls up his shirt and reveals the bite) Here! Right under my ribs!
Joe: Ouch! Should really hurt! Eric: Yeah, it does. Joe: Wait; let me get the first aid kit. Eric: It won t be any use. Is the camera on record? Joe: Yes it is. Why did you ask? Eric: I want you to share this with the world. Joe: Ok Eric, I was going to do that anyway. Eric: I have a request from you, Joe. Joe: Yes, Eric. Eric: Do you promise you will do it? Joe: I swear to God! Eric: I want you to kill me before I become a zombie. Joe: WHAT!? Eric: Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and pull the trigger. Also, if you get back home give this to my parents (Gives Joe his wallet) and tell them all about today. Do not tell anyone else about this place. I don t want you to get in trouble. (Starts frothing) Do it Joe! (Right after shooting Eric, the sands 1m away from Joe explodes) Joe: What s going on!?
(Takes the submachine gun) COME DUEL WITH ME IF YOU ARE NOT CHICKENS!!! (Empties the clip in all directions. After he finishes the bullets he leaves it, a bullet hits the ground a little far from him, and takes out the pistols) Sorry Eric! I was not able to carry out your will! (A bullet strikes Joe on the head. He falls on the ground, dead. After a while, 2 soldiers land from helicopters and start examining Joe s body) Soldier #1: Since when do teenagers come here? Soldier #2: Shoot anything that moves. HECU Handbook, page 19, paragraph 3, line 2. S #1: Did you memorize that? S #2: I do it every day. Why not memorize it? S #1: By the way, good shot. S #2: Thanks. This is what 5 years of experience make of you. You got 4 years to go. S #1: Look what I found. (Picks up the camera) It s on record! S #2: Take it and let s go before they start killing zombies.
(A news channel) Anchorman: Today s top story is about two famous internet stars being shot in a US Ministry of Defense restricted area near the town of Bullhead City, Nevada 2 weeks ago. A video of this has been leaked on WikiLeaks
yesterday. The 1 hour video shows Joseph McGlenn and Eric O Myers fighting Cold War era biological test subjects and being killed by US soldiers. This video has caused international and local human rights activists to protest at US embassies and government buildings. (Another news channel) Anchorman: The Us Ministry of Defense has apologized for the killing of two internet stars in a place codenamed Area 37 two months ago. It was also declared that 3 similar camps would be closed by the end of the year. This came after United Nations resolution that demanded all test subjects to be destroyed.
After 2 years, Joseph McGlenn and Eric O Myers received medals of Honor. The restricted areas were made into Museums of Shame, upon the requests of the victims families. The fates of the zombies are unknown.
