One day the world is going to end. Hopefully, humanity will be long gone when it happens, but in the off chance we aren’t and the world ends because of zombies, plague, or some kind of Snowpiercer situation, CNN is prepared. The network, in anticipation of such situations, has prepared a final video broadcast for the apocalypse.
We’ll be on, and we will cover the end of the world, live, and that will be our last event. We’ll play the National Anthem only one time, on the first of June [the day CNN launched], and when the end of the world comes, we’ll play ‘Nearer My God To Thee’ before we sign off.
According to a source who previously worked for the network, the last living CNN employee is required to play endearingly nicknamed Doomsday Tape for the last scraps of humanity clinging to their last breaths, limbs, organs, etc.
The former employee revealed that the Doomsday Tape is on CNN’s MIRA archive system, under the name TURNER DOOMSDAY VIDEO. No mistaking its intention with that name. The video is in standard definition, with an aspect ratio of 4:3, perfect for standard televisions of the 1980’s when it was created. The label for the tape, as you can see above this article, even states “hold for release till end of the world confirmed.” Grim stuff, CNN.
So when the end of the world does come, we will go into the dark listening and watching “Nearer My God To Thee” courtesy of the last surviving employee at a CNN studio in the world. You can watch the Doomsday Tape below:
