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.

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.
