An image from an old newspaper holds the (hilarious) key to the apocalypse.
In The Last of Us, we learned that the apocalypse is due to a fungal growth that infects people and turns them into Clickers. This eventually leads into the downfall of the United States, where the military has instilled martial law and savages run rampant. But this is a lie. The end of the world started far sooner – and far more tragically.
A Reddit user recently posted an image of an old newspaper found in The Last of Us. Naturally, there are the usual disasters – a shortage of clean water, a highway remaining to be built – but the key one lies at the top of the page. It showcases a movie ad for Uncharted.
Starring Justin Bieber as Nathan Drake.
If you know who neither Nathan Drake or Justin Bieber, then count yourself among those who were spared during the apocalypse. But for those who did, and for this being the last they saw before their collective deaths, may God have mercy on their souls.
