The Internet can be an incredibly fickle place. You can do something that seems — to you, at least — incredibly mundane, only to have it backfire on you in a gigantic way. Don't believe us? Ask YouTuber and Twitter user @markiplier. The Internet personality made — what he thought — was a very simple request to his followers that immediately backfired. It all started when he posted a picture of himself out in a field, with a mountain range behind him and asked for a slight Photoshop adjustment. He wanted to look like he was "holding up the mountain."
Honestly, what does that even mean? Holding up the mountain? You mean those distant blobs that basically look like nothing. Is this a reference to Hodor, except you're holding the mountain? What are you saying?! Is this really what you're asking a bunch of strangers to do for you?
Usually, a request of this nature initiates Le Grand Photoshop Battle, but for some reason, people decided to compete over who could make the worst version of Mark holding up the mountain. We hope he learned an important lesson here in that, we suspect, he was being entirely too vague. It just goes to show you: If you don't get specific, you get trolled. That's just as much a fact as it is a warning, people — don't take it lightly!

No, I am holding up a mountain.— Markiplier (@markiplier) December 18, 2017
I feel like you could have put more effort in.— Markiplier (@markiplier) December 18, 2017
I think you know that it’s not.— Markiplier (@markiplier) December 18, 2017
I’m ok with this— Markiplier (@markiplier) December 18, 2017
Though Mark was none too happy with the results (which is — you know — understandable, and we think you can understand after seeing some of the results), I think getting a picture of yourself high-fiving a dog is a good runner up to an actual Photoshop request. Much better than this, anyway:
