In today’s society, ‘Judgement Day’ aka ‘Doomsday’ can be regarded as either a legitimate religious teaching or a conspiracy theory that exists among a handful of superstitious netizens. For many others, however, it is a very unavoidable and frightening reality—one that a specific American mogul in particular has prepared for in a strange manner.

Billionaire Cable News Network (CNN) founder Ted Turner has revealed his plans to play a particularly eerie video on that final fateful day. Instructed by their founder, whoever ends up being CNN’s last living employee will be tasked with continuing to cover events “until the world ends,” all of it culminating in playing this one very last video.

Over 34 years ago, at the launch of CNN, Turner proclaimed to his employees, “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 1st 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,” as reported by Jalopnik.

And now, there’s proof to back up the billionaire’s master-plan. The video in question, titled Turner Doomsday video, was allegedly leaked by a former CNN employee to Jalopnik. Residing peacefully in CNN’s archives is a grainy—and very spooky—video of a band standing in front of what appears to be a grand mansion, playing an awfully depressing song. Of course, it would probably be considered inappropriate if the news broadcaster signed off the last day on earth with Katrina and the Waves’ ‘Walking on Sunshine’.

The song that was chosen is supposedly in an ode to the Titanic and the unlucky band who continued to play sorrowful hymns while the boat sank. Turner wished to create a similar sentiment—with CNN playing the part of the last ones standing.

According to Michael Ballaban, a former CNN intern and journalist for Jalopnik, “I don’t remember the exact day that I saw it, but it must’ve been a slow day in between all the regular intern duties of cueing up tapes and distributing mail.”

He continued: “The video didn’t take long to find; it turned up after a quick search in the database.” Clearly, Turner wasn’t overly cautious about his Doomsday plans falling into the wrong hands.

All I can say is that if the world does truly ever end, I’d rather sign things off with something slightly more light-hearted.
