Around November, AmericanFails uploaded a video called "The Face." Meant as a joke, The Face was a virus that spread through electronic devices. The same night, a video was uploaded entitled "HACK." People thought the channel was actually hacked, and feedback said "...it looked like it could have been real." Only a few days after AmericanFails' channel began to lose subscribers. In a quick attempt to keep his subscribers, AmericanFails uploaded the next episode called "Before The Storm" which proved the channel was still in the right hands, but also explained how the channel was hacked in the series.
