YouTuber Admits He Faked Girlfriend's Death So He Could Stage A Séance

YouTuber Admits He Faked Girlfriend's Death So He Could Stage A Séance

Proving that there really is no subject off-limits for YouTube pranksters, Jason Ethier - also known as ImJayStation - has admitted that he faked the death of his girlfriend so he could hold a blag séance to try and boost his subscriber count.

Anyone else had enough of this decade already?

The online prankster, who has more than five million subscribers, shared an emotional video last week in which he claimed his girlfriend - and fellow YouTuber - Alexia Marano had been killed by a drunk driver.

He followed up his first video with a second video in which he claimed to be in a memorial area for his 'deceased' beloved.

While his viewers responded with sympathy, Jason decided to go one step further and uploaded a video of himself using a Ouija board in an attempt to make contact with his partner from 'beyond the grave'. Jesus wept.

However, Jason has since admitted that the whole thing was a hoax and has apologised. He also revealed that Alexia had ended the relationship.

In the clip he tells his viewers: "I want to start out by saying I'm sorry to Alexia's family for putting them through any hard times or stress about the death of their daughter.

"I didn't intend them to get any hate or put them through any emotional stress involving Alexia. I expected all of this to stay on YouTube and it didn't."

He went on to explain: "I thought of the idea of faking Alexia's death and then doing a thing on YouTube thanking everyone and explaining to everyone it was just to gain traction.

"So, we were going to say she died, then do a Ouija board video, which we did do.

"Then we would resurrect her and get more followers. But now my girlfriend is gone and I'm in serious trouble."

But if he thought he was going to get any sympathy in the comments section then he was badly mistaken, as he was slammed in thousands of replies.

One wrote: "Taking advantage of kids' gullibility... lying about someone dying to a drunk driver when there are ACTUALLY people who died to a drunk driver... YouTubers have hit an all-time low."

A second person fumed: "You're an inhuman monster and deserve everything bad that happens to you, because it's all on you." Yikes.
