What is Friday Night Funkin'? Well, it is not your average DDR-esk game, that's for sure! You see, when this game started to make it's rounds around KGflow, I got a lot of requests to cover it. So I started researching. Theorists, this game is FULL of lore... and it gets WEIRD! Seriously, you will have to watch to believe it.

  • 15:10 this is why I only choose one video that's at least 20-25 minutes long, rather than a playlist, if I need background noise to fall asleep. I use it like a sleep timer on a clock radio or TV. That or a whirring fan will do the trick.

  • Theory: Look at the monster’s neck closely. Look at the colour, doesn’t it seem oddly familiar to the skin of the background dancers? Well my theory is that the monster is an angry dancer that betrayed the Dearest family. Why else would the Lemon demon be trying to eat Girlfriend? I hope you try and expand this theory in the next FNF theory, MatPat. And yes, I would LOVE for you to do more! Not it either

  • 13:04 it could be that he put her in the virtual world to keep the monster away from her, knowing that the boyfriend who was able to beat him would do just fine holding off the spirits he trapped there who couldn’t beat him. They may have been trapped in GF’s dating sim because they tried to date GF and lost to the dad so he put them in a dating sim so they could date GF virtually but not in reality cuz they weren’t good enough… GF’s knowledge of the sim’s world and BF’s ability to defend her while she’s there make it a safe place to keep them from the monster. Or if the theory of him sending failed BF’s there is wrong it could be senpai’s personal prison because he tried to date GF even after losing to dad which meant he did it without dad’s knowledge or permission and so was trapped in the dating sim to be stuck always dating GF only ever in a virtual setting…
