  • Make sure to leave your questions for our Post Mortem episode down below!

    • If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

    • What would you do on a deserted island? What extra person would you bring?

    • shane which part of little women (the movie) did u start crying at this is important

    • Which rap song would you rather use against the water sprites, Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice or Fancy by Iggy Azalea?

    • whenever i need to do scottish accents i just always say it how i think shrek would say it and i think you guys should try it too!!

  • Bro idk what happened to my bros

  • i wanna see the case of how my dad left

  • aaaand Ricky Goldsworth strikes again

  • as a scottish person, i wasnt offended but shane's accent was more closer to scottish than ryans ghfjdska

  • "Now tht we've workshopped it.." ๐Ÿ˜†

  • Yโ€™all really came back to fix 2020 last minute huh?

  • 7:34 shake your screen and watch the grass fields closely

  • As a Brit the switch in accents between slightly Scottish, Irish, Mancunian, Scouser and London geezer was painful. Still love the videos, but please, on before of the British, donโ€™t try and do our accents again

  • I guess it's just the Shane and Ryan show now

  • Wait so is this what the movie "The vanishing" is based on ?

  • season 7 of buzzfeed unsolved here to save 2020

  • Donโ€™t you know itโ€™s bad luck to kill a seabird

  • HII!! ,I miss you two๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  • HII!! ,I miss you two๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  • So Shane referred to Watchmen as "a movie" and I'm a boogara now.

  • Baaaaaane

  • Wait isn't this story from Llama arts?

  • Its ma Boysss

  • In all honesty, they were 100% swept away by the ocean. This is one of the most remote Scottish islands, in December, with record of stormy weather. Heck, the guy employed to keep an eye on the light from afar probably didn't think much of not being able to see the light for days because IT'S A RURAL SCOTLAND ISLAND IN DECEMBER.

  • took me 3 or 4 times watching, but I finally spotted the mannequin

  • any of my fellow Scots up for a visit here.. i never even knew about this place but i really wanna go now

  • If I imagine living in the 1800's I would probably be quick to point all my theories at the supernatural too. Like I don't know much about how the world works and neither does anyone else so, it must be magic? That's why these unsolved cases are weird to us now, because back then, nobody knew what evidence to look for and things just appeared "normal". The only evidence we can base research off of now, is the evidence collected back then. Maybe a big wave did hit the lighthouse but people pushed it under the rug because of insufficient evidence. In the 2000's, people don't really blame aliens or mermaid people on strange occurrences, because we know now what really happens. There's probably a logical explanation, and we just fail to find it.

  • Iโ€™m offended *unsubcribes*

  • Iโ€™m pretty sure I played this contract in Wild Hunt...

  • Maybe the island was a good secluded spot for alien abductions. The twin sheep could actually be clones.

  • Joseph Moore was the imposter. Imposters win

  • Well im Scottish and โ€œLighthooseโ€ was spot on from the Shane the rest was terrible ๐Ÿ˜‚ but hilarious none the less ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • A new film just came out about this, look up โ€œthe lighthouseโ€ itโ€™s on sky cinema.

  • The spoopy boys are back!!!

  • Can you solve why I can't find love?

  • oh my god i just realized that the pictures of victims and people arenโ€™t actually them... iโ€™ve been watching this show since it started and i never put it together wow

  • the fays did it. if youve ever been to Scotland youโ€™d know, the feys did it.

  • I like theory 4.

  • did you. did you put the stranger things theme in. i- hdvjghsvx

  • THE BOYS ARE BACK

  • Q&A: If the storm was big enough, wouldn't it have wiped all of the islands of the sheep?

  • Why is the narrator holding his nose??

  • The ... the โ€˜bouieโ€™ ...? ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • WAIT have you all seen โ€œThe Lighthouseโ€????? this reminds me of that a lot

  • i havent watched buzzfeed unsolved in so long! im now binging everything LOL

  • I heard that all of the journal entries about morale being low was made up.

  • THEY ARE BACKKKKKK

  • How long have we been on this rock? Five weeks, two days? Help me to recollect.

  • HOW DID I MISS THIS IS DUDHIUHS

  • Yesss! I've always loved this story! I mean, it sucks... but I was always attracted to it. They just vanished! Wtf! And also... Scotland โค

  • That rhyme was magic...utter, magic.

  • you wanna really know what happened to those men mR 47

  • This reminds me of โ€œThe Lighthouseโ€ movie starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Patinson. Very claustrophobic movie I must say.

  • Shaun the sheep killed them and threw the bodies into the ocean, no doubt

  • i am so ashamed i needed that explanation about the logs joke

    • @Ailsa Ni i have no clue xD i'm not american but by their tone i infer they're not too sure either

    • I canโ€™t get over the pronunciation of โ€˜buoyโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜‚ can I just ask is that a normal American pronunciation? We would just pronounce it โ€˜boyโ€™ not โ€˜booeyโ€™ in the UK

  • What season is this ?

    • True Crime season 7

  • I can't believe Shane took it to an Animorph level ๐Ÿ˜‚ I can completely see the cover he described

  • I'm home alone, it's night. Why am I watching this

  • We need a longer season this time!

  • Big storm a large sea wave can get pretty bad they clearly got swept out to sea Rogue wave?

  • Demon boys are back

  • Plot twist: the sheep ate them

  • Pirates?

  • "Aliens" "NO"

  • 6:10 what kind of laugh is THAT shane?? shanes a ghost haunting ryan i swear to god

  • I sure do like my big tall light and I donโ€™t like you sir so get out of my sight...

  • Ryan and Shane: (wheeze) Me: heck.

  • Great episode and a very strange mystery ...

  • At the beginning of the video, Shane had a look of "Sure, I'll roll with it ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ"

  • I canโ€™t get over the pronunciation of โ€˜buoyโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜‚ can I just ask is that a normal American pronunciation? We would just pronounce it โ€˜boyโ€™ not โ€˜booeyโ€™ in the UK

  • On behalf of all Scots, please never do that again๐Ÿคฃ

  • My mind is just telling me that they were kidnapped by pirates and lived a long life on board the jolly rodger

  • Dropping bars

  • i never realised id be so excited to have my country on unsolved lol

    • just heard the awful accents. i take it back

  • Butt of Shane is the windiest place in the US. God! This dudes can't stay serious at all.

  • as a Scot myselfโ€ฆ. I can confirm, these accents = offended ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Things aren't gonna happen that are great - Ryan bergara official 2020 tagline

  • Its all fun and games until a leprechaun tries to sell you magic grass!

  • Iam offensive and that accent scotted me.

  • 3 men went missing on an island known for having 300 foot waves, and the strongest recorded winds in the UK... what the hell is the mystery?! one or more of them fell into the water by a wave or the wind and the others tried to help and they fell in too... simple.

  • Why'd yer spill yer beans...? Why'd yer spill yer beans., Tommy...?

  • I hate buzzfeed but these guys are amazing.

  • Iโ€™m Scottish, Iโ€™m offended by this, I should be and Iโ€™m gonna teach you how to say: โ€œI love working at the lighthouseโ€ Scottish: โ€œ A luv wur-kin it eh lite-hooseโ€

  • these scottish accents hurt

  • Mcdonalds Sprite really can kill a man.

  • really love the fact that the ad on the right is for the movie about these lighthouse keepers. i also love that the keepers are gerard butler, connor swindells and peter mullan

  • go subscribe to watcher ๐Ÿ‘

  • the movie The Lighthouse ruined this episode for me.

  • 22:54 BAD LUCK TO KILL A SEABIRD

  • Are we just going to gloss over at the beginning Ryan said that there is a dark spirit on the Islands who keep Shepherds off the islands with their sheep?

  • Missed these two so much

  • I thought this would be based on the movie lighthouse

    • and I thought the movie Lighthouse would be based on these events imagine my surprise sitting thru that movie

  • BFU is back with the boys! I'm happy.

  • Bad luck to kill a seabird...

  • The dark knight reference>>>>>>

  • Oh yeah another night of no sleep

    • Logically Dictate Iโ€™m sorry did I ask

    • itโ€™s not even that scary

  • The one theory no one has tried, its nessy the loch ness monster.

  • Kind of just connecting the dots that this story might have inspired the willem dafoe and robert pattinson movie.

  • curious to know if they ever found any trace of the flag. You'd wonder if it was torn down by the storm or if it was just lowered.

  • Americans!! Say โ€œbuoyantโ€, now say โ€œbuoyโ€. Exactly!! Stop pronouncing it Boo-ey ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ

  • Well obviously it was aliens, the Rutans of course. Doctor Who was there and so was Leela.

  • How about Xavier DuPont de Ligonnรจs ? The aristocrat who slaughtered his' entire family? That remains a mystery up till now.

  • So I guess this is inspire the lighthouse movie?

    • no not even close. These true events were covered in a movie called The Vanishing Lighthouse is make believe

  • 19:20 I too shipped Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson, and off-camera friend ๐Ÿ˜‚
