Faceless YouTuber Corpse Husband has become quite the phenomenon throughout 2020 and 2021, but without a face to put to the name, a Google search will show up with Seán ‘jacksepticeye’ McLoughlin instead, much to the Irish YouTuber’s surprise.
2020 saw the insane rise of Corpse Husband, the anonymous YouTuber characterized by his gothic style dress and iconic deep voice.
As people continue to try and peer behind that Donnie Darko-style mask, it turns out that Google has identified just who Corpse Husband is. The results, though, aren’t quite what we expected.
Google picks up jacksepticeye as Corpse Husband
In a bizarre turn of events, Google is showing fellow YouTube sensation jacksepticeye as being Corpse Husband when searching for him.
Posting a tweet that simply states “I am Corpse Husband,” the Irishman shows that the image that appears next to “Corpse Husband, American Musician” is, in fact, one of himself.

The explanation is that Google has simply picked up an image from an article discussing the pair’s relationship, and the algorithm has obviously picked up on the facial features of Jack, mistakenly putting it next to Corpse.
i spilled “Top of the Morning™️” all on my white tee👏🏻

Corpse Husband responds
Corpse himself immediately jumped on the meme train too, simply responded “WE ARE CORPSE.”
WE ARE CORPSE

So has Google cracked the code? We’ll never know. We’d better keep an eye on Jack, though – have we ever seen them in the same room together?
