I thought that the simulation was so advanced that the moment he did the whack a mole thing the simulation began. I thought that all that happened when they plugged him in happened in his brain and that the point of the horror part was to make his thoughts believe that it is real life and that nothing harmful can happen.

To all Americans, shire in English counties is pronounced share (generally midland and southern counties), or sheer (generally northern counties) and not like the hobbits homeland the Shire as in rhyming with hire.

Just to you know, Berkshire is pronounced BARK-shuh as opposed to BURK-SHY-AH. I know it probably doesn’t make sense but it’s just one of our weird English place names and they’re almost never phonetic. But anyway, thanks for a great video. 👍

The ending really bothers me because of how irrealistic it is. If this technology existed, and they were aware of the risks of phone interference then why would they even allow phones into the room?

Cooper was one of the best characters in black mirror but this episode had one of the worst twists. If they knew a phone interference would be that dangerous, why would they even bring the phone in the room?

I thought the process just wasn't finished the game and the phone interuppted the program causing him to have a heart attack. now knowing that all of that was basically fake makes so much more sense and adds so much depth to what the episode really means. Fantastic video I gotta sub !

4:12 that's wrong,he actually was in the simulation it wasn't his imagination , the perception about time of his mind was deleted or the information on his brain was going faster because of the game so all he saw and felt was because of the game.And she puts him a "mushroom" on the back of his head , and taking the time out of the ecuation of your mind doing shrooms is something so common that you experience everytime .

Anyone find the reference of when he's going to the "evacuation room" and he doesn't want to open the door, because his mum will be hanging, that the voice in his ear says "would you Kindly open the door" which could be a reference to Bioshocks mid game twist where the main character was being controlled to do things by using the phrase "would you Kindly" this could be a reference to the games at the girls house or that the voice in his ear was going to betray him by actually being apart of the test (This is ignoring the twist ending that it was all in his head).

It was more than "that was amazing", it rocked me to my core. I still play the scene where he's crying in my head and get a wave of emotion. Just some brilliant storytelling and acting

Maybe the augmented reality thing wasn’t meant to be a horror experience in the first place (since they never mentioned that it was supposed to be) it could be possible that the phone ringing triggered something in his brain that sent him down the horror loop

Im pretty sure that entire episode was symbolic for a bad mushroom trip. Anyone who had a difficult heroic trip knows what I mean. I took 10g's last year and the way he looked towards the end, crying in the mirror. Wondering who he is... thats exactly what happen to me. I never questioned reality so hard in my entire life. It shook me to my core, il never be the same person because of it. Not only that but there was so many hints towards mushrooms. There was a huge picture of a mushroom in the creators office and the device that goes in the back of the head is called a mushroom.

I'd like to disagree with a key point - I don't think Cooper was creating/projecting anything inside his own head (environments, characters) using just his own experiences or memories. The whole point of the implant is to learn what he finds most disturbing, and fabricate a situation to freak him out to the fullest extent possible. For example - you mentioned that the haunted house may have been textured by his brain from memory; but in fact, the implant would have had a full copy of the game world included in it, not requiring Cooper to generate any of that himself. It was searching through his memories, feeding back the worst of them to him, and adding its own elements for flavour - like the house and the spider, and a 'premade bully' onto which any player's memories could be copy/pasted. Similarly, Sho going from poorly worded to full English would more easily be understood as the implant using its prior knowledge of its creator and the game induction process, meshed with some awkward idealizations, to generate a realistic world and allow Cooper to believe that he was in real life, giving the game more leverage to disturb him. Along that vein - the Whack-A-Mole game probably WAS part of the real induction. The game would have seen it played multiple times over during playtests, learning that it's the typical startup procedure for the session, and including it either by default or to further immerse Cooper. Yours was an interesting interpretation, but I don't think it's quiiite what was intended!

Call me a skeptic but I don’t think that the original phone ringing was what killed him. It kind of kills the whole point of how everything that happened was the company’s fault and invalidates the entire Black Mirror statement of the dangers of technology. His headset hadn’t fully lit up so i don’t think the phone ringing could have killed him and that he was alive during the entire experience but the place and movement was all caused by the chip and he never actually left the room. I think that if he was dead/dying and was dreaming from his own brain he wouldn’t be able to feel things as he says he does or lose his mind and all his memory
