YouTube superstar Mark ‘Markiplier‘ Fischbach has released his interactive film, A Heist with Markiplier. Here’s how you can make the choices that impact what happens to the beloved YouTuber.

What is “A Heist with Markiplier”?

A Heist with Markiplier is a first-of-its-kind interactive film hosted entirely on YouTube. The film is shot from a first-person perspective, with the viewer personally engaged in a heist with Markiplier himself. Following the end of each installment, the viewer is presented with a choice on how to proceed.

The film features guest appearances by an extensive collection of YouTubers and streamers, including Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris, the Schmoyoho guys of Songify and Auto-tune the News fame, and the Game Grumps.

The first episode guest stars Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy of the Slo-Mo Guys, who have traded in their lab coats for the uniforms of easily out-witted museum security guards. A very good dog also makes an appearance.

How do you make choices during the Heist?

At the very end of each video, Markiplier provides the two choices for the viewer to decide upon. These can be decisions on what kind of approach to take, or choosing between two different paths. Click through links of both options will appear on the screen for the viewer to click. Both choices are also in the description box under the video.

All of the videos, except for the first episodes, are unlisted on YouTube, so you can only watch them by advancing through the narrative, and you can avoid any spoilers when you’re searching videos or looking at your recommendations.

YouTubeYouTube started making Originals like Origin back in 2016

Where do I go to watch it?

Go to YouTube and put “Markiplier” in the search bar. Markiplier’s channel should be the top result, and right up there with it should be the first video in the series, titled “A Heist with Markiplier”. It’s a YouTube original that can be watched without ads, unlike most series produced by YouTube. 

Click on that to start your journey. Or, you know, just click play right below this.

In a video released yesterday titled “I need a favor…”, Markiplier asked his fans to simply be there for the release and “enjoy the hell out of” the project. Mark could barely contain his excitement for the series that has taken over a year to produce from a team of “over fifty talented people.”

Markiplier has been making videos for over seven years on YouTube and has cultivated a following of over 24 million subscribers. This is his first YouTube Original.

Popular drama page TikTok Room delighted its 1.8 million followers this week when, on November 25, they announced on their Instagram that they would be hosting their very own awards show!

The post also announced that voting would be on Friday 27 November, with the awards then streaming tonight on Saturday 28 November.

Details surrounding what the award categories were was initially vague, with the account teasing more information throughout the week before opening the polls on Friday for fans to vote for some of their favorite TikTokers in various categories.

Despite the categories remaining unclear prior to voting being open, that didn’t stop some of TikTok’s biggest stars endorsing the awards and encouraging fans to vote for them.

Among other famous faces like Skai Jackson, Nessa Barrett, and Jacob Sartorius, Sway House star Bryce Hall endorsed the awards in a video, joking that he was probably nominated in the “most problematic” category, while Charli D’Amelio, who recently reached 100k followers on the TikTok, told her fans that “there is a special award show on Sunday” and encouraged them all to vote.

Although some fans found that there was difficulty submitting their votes – with TikTok Room explaining in an Instagram post that this was due to heavy traffic on the form- by the time the polls were closed, TikTok Room announced that over 500,000 votes were cast after teasing fans earlier that day with just how close some of the categories were.

What are the categories?

The TikTok Room awards consists of 28 categories in total, and are as follows:

The running order of these categories is not yet clear.

When do the TikTok Room awards start?

While the awards themselves start at 8pm Eastern Standard Time, TikTok Room have announced that there will be a pre-show from 6pm Eastern Standard Time.

It isn’t quite certain how exactly the awards will be broadcast, although TikTok Room did confirm to a fan in the comments section that they would be posting the results on their Instagram page throughout the night.

So, to watch the awards, your best bet is to keep an eye on TikTok Room’s Instagram account!
