There is only one reaction video exists, which is of the last ten seconds of the screamer. 
About the video[edit | edit source]
The video was edited with Windows Movie Maker 2, containing various scrolling texts to provide steps on how to unlock Luigi.
Lotus, the user who uploaded it, had recorded his screen with a flip phone camera (possibly a Motorola RAZR V3) to "give it a more genuine look." He had changed the castle with the Toad's Tool 64 level editor to add a door in the right wall next to the main room staircase, and change Mario's outfit to blue and black. A few other changes were made to the level editor, such as changing the castle's gray brick texture to a black one that Lotus created in Microsoft Paint.
The video's audio ended up being muted to avoid copyright issues. but it was swapped for 009 Sound System's Dreamscape theme according to testimonials from several people. However, after digging into various comments on the internet, it is likely that the actual song that Lotus used was Database by Alexander Perls, who was also the creator of 009 Sound System. Lotus recalls that he was emailed an offer to put a song in his video in exchange for approximately US $40, which he gladly accepted. The topic in question may have been Database, but is currently unconfirmed.
The video began in the game's starting area, with Mario running towards the castle. Many remember a part that takes place in the Bomb-Omb Battlefield level; but after an interview with Lotus, this was not true. The entire video took place inside the castle, mostly in the courtyard.
Occasionally various text boxes (made in Movie Maker) would appear providing more steps to "unlock Luigi". Many remember that one of the steps was "kicking a ghost". Lotus remembers one step, which was to run around the fountain a certain number of times. After a few minutes, a final text saying something like appears "Press A on This wall" (press A in the wall), which was followed by a sharp cut with the infamous screamer of Auto from the K-fee commercials.
History[edit | edit source]
On September 8, 2015, a small thread on the original Screamer Forums was created by SCL concerning a lost screamer on how to unlock Luigi.
Later in 2020, a larger scale search was started on the Lost Media Wiki to try and find the video. The people at Lost Media wiki were able to find the thumbnail of the video as well as successfully contact and recruit LotusMan7, whom unfortunately no longer has the video.
Archives[edit | edit source]
After contacting LotusMan17, he said that he may have accidentally deleted both of them. But after finding an updated description of the video on a Facebook page made in late 2011, it is most likely that Lotus himself deleted it on purpose, due to the sheer volume of hate and death threats it had received.
At this time, it is not known if copies of the video exist, and Internet Archive administrators confirmed that the video had not been archived.
