The Internet is an incredible fount of knowledge. Basically everything humans have ever discovered throughout history is readily available with just a few clicks around the World Wide Web. In addition to some amazing factoids though, the Internet can also teach you important lessons about life. For instance, it will teach you that you should never, ever ask people on the Internet for help Photoshopping your personal photos. One man had to learn this the hard way.
Twitter user @Markiplier just wanted to fix his picture.
He’d posed in front of a mountain range, but didn’t quite get the perspective right.
He wanted to make it look as if he were holding up the mountain, so he asked the Internet for help.
It was a pretty simple request.
Unfortunately for him, the Internet doesn’t do super well when it comes to simple requests.
The Photoshopped versions soon started rolling in.
Like this one, which shows @Markiplier (we’ll go ahead and refer to him as Mark for the rest of this article) holding up The Mountain. As in, Gregor Clegane from Game of Thrones. On one hand, this definitely isn’t what Mark had in mind.
On the other, at least his head didn’t get smashed…? We know Gregor is capable of such things.
Mark was not amused.
And of course, the Internet as a whole got together and apologized for misunderstanding his request and immediately provided the correct solution to the problem.
Just kidding. This is the Internet!
Ahhh, that’s more like it.
Mark continued to get even more bizarre images. Some of which took his request way too literally.
