Likee Meltdown

From Daniel Larson Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Likee Meltdown, also known as Rest in Peace Dave and Grace VanderWaal, is one of the earliest known incidents in the Daniel Larson story, occurring on June 25, 2021. The meltdown, unlike many others, is not one whole video. Instead, it is a combination of a series of videos posted on the platform Likee, a video-posting platform Daniel used due to not having access to his phone, and a YouTube video titled Rest in peace dave and grace vanderwaal.

At the start, Daniel calmly explains that due to his phone breaking, he was using a laptop to upload videos to Likee to reach out to his current Management, and, most notably, the "VanderWaal Team", before eventually slipping into a mental breakdown. This was due to him being convinced by trolls that Grace VanderWaal, his longtime crush, had died and that the VanderWaal Team was withholding information from him. However, things took a sharp turn as Daniel began frantically asking to be, "let back on the team", whilst threatening his own life and hitting his head. Daniel soon starts blaming an unknown individual only known as “JP”, and a caretaker,[1] for "all of this".

Adding to the weirdness of it all, It is unknown what happened before or after this the incident concluded, and adding onto all of this confusion, JP's response video to the Likee Meltdown (at least according to comments on reddit) being subsequently lost.[2]

Daniel: Hello, this is Daniel Larson. My phone ended up breaking last night when everything was going on. I was tossing the phone in the air and it ended up, um, the screen ended up going blank and it showed static. So please, if you get this message, know that I'm currently trying. You can contact me through here. Unfortunately, I will have to give video updates.

Daniel: This message goes out to the VanderWaal family. Please pray for the VanderWaal family. They're currently in critical condition.

Daniel: This message goes out to the VanderWaal team. I am currently trying everything I could possibly try. Even though my phone broke, I have still gotten out the message. I will give more updates as I go, but unfortunately, I'm without a phone right now. And so I'm currently doing everything by laptop, but fortunately it will not let me message as of right now, so I can only do videos. But please stay tuned. I will try to give updates and I'll try to get everything situated.

Daniel: Hello, this is Daniel Larson. This is a state of emergency order to the VanderWaal team. Please make another video and post it on all social *burp* media platforms and say, please pray for the VanderWaal family. Please pray, pray for the VanderWaal family. They're in critical condition and leave it there. I want pictures of the entire family. Please post now.

Daniel: Hello, this is Daniel Larson. Please let me know if there's anything I could do to help. Please ask the VanderWaal team what I need to do to help and also to rank up in the company.

Daniel: Hello to Daniel Larson team and my record label. There's currently a situation. Google and YouTube are not letting me use them. I don't know what's going on. I thought we had an agreement. But unfortunately, I lost all access to making new Google accounts. I currently am stuck. I have no way of contacting you.

Daniel: Likee is not letting me post.

Daniel: Hey Josh and Jay, please contact JP now. We have an emergency.

Daniel: Please message me Josh. Please send Jay and Bob the contract for Party House. They need to see it. They need proof for the investigation.

Daniel: The police are about to be called into the situation. We still are getting zero responses.

[The lighting in the room has changed, Daniel switches to YouTube. Lead up to the meltdown]

Daniel: Grace is going to want this video- thing that I've done. I admit to sexting minors, and... sexting Grace, and sending Grace a dick pic. I'm sorry for putting Grace through so much stress... that she takes her own life and has a heart attack.

[Sigh] Her words to me was- her last words to me was: "Daniel, I look up to you. But you make wrong choices. I know you could do pletter- better. I know you could do better. Please do better for me. I want you to carry off your legacy for me- My legacy for me. I don't know if I'm going to make it through the night." And my response to her was yes. I would carry on her legacy. And that's what I'm currently doing. Grace, rest in peace.

I don't know if you're getting this message. But if you got this message, you have any- you can always be welcome to come to my house. I don't know if- in heaven you can see everything. I don't know, but you're always welcome to be here. And I'm sorry for everything that has happened. Maybe one day, when I die, we can finally meet and I can apologize. But right now, I'm worried about clearing this up and fixing what I've done. That's why I'm making a YouTube video right now. But I will tell you, I'm not going to sit here and do thousands of YouTube videos like I've been doing right now, I'm just doing this one video to try to clear things up. I'm just trying to get the word out. I'm sorry, Grace. You should have never dealt with this. You should have never gone through this. You should have never had a heart attack. I'm so sorry. But I promise, I will do what you said, and I will carry this on, and I will carry your legacy. And I'll put my music and everything moving forward under you, because you're a hero.

You saved my life. And that's what I'm going to do. You chose to take yourself off life support. You fought for me. And I will not give up. The entire VanderWaal family is wishing you to rest in peace. And I am currently getting used to everything. But I have your mother, Tina VanderWaal's, help. And now I have you from above looking down on me. And Dave, all in my heart. We will make it through this, no matter what. Rest in peace, Dave and Grace VanderWaal. The one and only, Dave and Grace VanderWaal.
