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

      1. Gracie

        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.

      2. Plant

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

      3. valsol

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

      4. Grace Linnea

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

      5. Yazmine Yacub

        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!!

    2. J Lange

      Sprite is an awfully cute name for murderous, green haired fish dudes.

    3. Mariaj De Guzman

      this reminds me of an A24 movie called "The Lighthouse"

    4. emilia d

      did anybody else have to read the poem about this for english?

    5. Phina

      I think this is my favourite episode of unsolved. LOVE the folklore element!

    6. Proinsias Cassidy

      This reminds me, wasn't there a mystery movie like this named Keepers from 2018, with Gerard Butler? With two older lighthouse keepers and one that's younger? I don't wanna spoil it, and I was kinda meh about it myself, but I'm pretty convinced it was based on this story now.

    7. Aliyah Phelps

      Shane and Ryan failing at Scottish accents give me a joy no other can lmaooo

    8. Larry Lobster

      *Robert Pattinson and Willam Dafoe have entered chat

    9. booitsbella

      Rhyming light with sprite was RIGHT THERE shane

    10. Thatguyy

      To those who are wondering, 8 pounds back in 1900 is about $1,697.31 CAD in today's money.

    11. Cult Beliefs

      To Ryan and shane I present you the mother of all mystery murders. The case would be easiest for you to present as all the related facts are available to you in public Domain (Except who killed them) . Even two movies are made based on the same. Here is a brief description. The Noida double murder case refers to the unsolved murders of 13-year-old girl Aarushi Talwar and 45-year-old Hemraj Banjade, a male live-in domestic worker employed by her family. The two were killed on the night of 15-16 May 2008 at Aarushi's home in Noida, India. The tiny details of the events happened at the night of the murder can give you chills. Hope you give it a try. Big fan of your show.

    13. pauly repa

      "Sheeps" really??😒

    14. Summer Perez

      Everybody go watch S.W.A.T Season 3 Episode Gunpowder treason Ryan and Shane make a few appearances it's amazing

    15. Slim Jim


    16. Casey Hill

      Im sure "magic grass" is the answer for a lot of unsolved mysteries lol. Really though idk if im Thinking wave. The grounds keeper seems suspicious as hell.

    17. mauao1

      Be great if it wasn’t for the constant ridiculous blabbing by these two.

    18. galkanftw

      I would say that because of the date I doubt there was much of a professional investigation.So imo there is simply a lack of information.

    19. Miguel Vargas

      The theories in this video are so chaotic I love it haha

    20. Joseph Moore

      Bro idk what happened to my bros

    21. Jim Cook

      i wanna see the case of how my dad left

    22. Roast BEEF

      aaaand Ricky Goldsworth strikes again

    23. Becky H

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

    24. Elizabeth

      "Now tht we've workshopped it.." 😆

    25. Carolina Silva

      Y’all really came back to fix 2020 last minute huh?

    26. Astoria Rowe

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

    27. Andrew Wilcox

      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, don’t try and do our accents again

    28. Existentialismz

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

    29. Sai Smaran

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

    30. emerald

      season 7 of buzzfeed unsolved here to save 2020

    31. Dadman84

      Don’t you know it’s bad luck to kill a seabird

    32. Genie Bubbly

      HII!! ,I miss you two😍😍

    33. Genie Bubbly

      HII!! ,I miss you two😍😍

    34. burymeinpink

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

    35. Criminally Insane


    36. Lemon Juice

      Wait isn't this story from Llama arts?

    37. Christine Kissoon

      Its ma Boysss

    38. Allanna

      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.

    39. Johan Vajse

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

    40. Amy Megan

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

    41. chimmy

      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.

    42. Joe Barrett

      I’m offended *unsubcribes*

    43. Juliana Ellsworth

      I’m pretty sure I played this contract in Wild Hunt...

    44. Aaron Lewis

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

    45. Verify

      Joseph Moore was the imposter. Imposters win

    46. MCN 91

      Well im Scottish and “Lighthoose” was spot on from the Shane the rest was terrible 😂 but hilarious none the less 😂

    47. Tom Williams

      A new film just came out about this, look up “the lighthouse” it’s on sky cinema.

    48. G DeVz

      The spoopy boys are back!!!

    49. ItsJetty

    50. Grace Kathers

      oh my god i just realized that the pictures of victims and people aren’t actually them... i’ve been watching this show since it started and i never put it together wow

    51. Samael Beaulieu

      the fays did it. if youve ever been to Scotland you’d know, the feys did it.

    52. Amy Jacobs

      I like theory 4.

    53. Alex Hubbard

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

    54. Malena Cardenas


    55. Jason Lubrano

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

    56. fffforever

      Why is the narrator holding his nose??

    57. Melissa Sheard

      The ... the ‘bouie’ ...? 😂

    58. briana cushing

    63. Olivia Walsh


    64. nemosangel

    65. Brian Smith

      That rhyme was magic...utter, magic.

    66. Chris Savage

      you wanna really know what happened to those men mR 47

    67. Ailsa Ni

      This reminds me of “The Lighthouse” movie starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Patinson. Very claustrophobic movie I must say.

    68. J. A

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

    69. im19ice3

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

      1. im19ice3

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

      2. Ailsa Ni

        I can’t get over the pronunciation of ‘buoy’ 😂 can I just ask is that a normal American pronunciation? We would just pronounce it ‘boy’ not ‘booey’ in the UK

    70. Emma Mascarenas

      What season is this ?

      1. Johan Vajse

        True Crime season 7

    71. Twiztid Freekshow

      I can't believe Shane took it to an Animorph level 😂 I can completely see the cover he described

    72. Nithin Sai

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

    73. Mark Rouch

      We need a longer season this time!

    74. That’s a lot of Sodium coins

      Ryan and Shane: (wheeze) Me: heck.

    82. mondomacabro major

      Great episode and a very strange mystery ...

    83. Speccy SquareGoLike

      At the beginning of the video, Shane had a look of "Sure, I'll roll with it 🤷‍♂️"

    84. BeaH

      I can’t get over the pronunciation of ‘buoy’ 😂 can I just ask is that a normal American pronunciation? We would just pronounce it ‘boy’ not ‘booey’ in the UK

    85. Lauren Gell

      On behalf of all Scots, please never do that again🤣

    86. Alex Hutchins

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

    87. Jermaine Weir

      Dropping bars

    93. Big Boss

    94. Jex2112

      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.

    95. CurlyBear

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

    96. Zonkk Bonkk

      I hate buzzfeed but these guys are amazing.

    97. Sheridan Townsley

      I’m Scottish, I’m offended by this, I should be and I’m gonna teach you how to say: “I love working at the lighthouse” Scottish: “ A luv wur-kin it eh lite-hoose”

    98. oliveraven

      these scottish accents hurt

    99. Anita Borozan

      Mcdonalds Sprite really can kill a man.
