1 5 One Billion Views Animator USFlag 2007 YouTuber

How It Should Have Ended (HISHE) is a YouTube company that makes parodies of popular movies, and making them funnier, and sometimes pointing out things they could have done, instead of just doing it the complicated way. How It Should Have Ended is a success on YouTube, as it has over 7.8 million subscribers and over 2 billion total video views as of 2018.


Their animations are based on comedy, and parodies of real movies, such as Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, and Star Wars. There animations are always 2D.

However, HISHE does not always make movie parodies; sometimes they have fun with the movie characters, such as the "Hero Café" and the "Villain Pub".

Hero Cafe

In Hero Café, the episodes always feature Superman and Batman. They always brag to each other of who's better, or who's stupid. The Hero Café is also always featured in a Superhero movie parody. Batman always frantically says, "I'm Batman!" Once, they made a How It Should Have Ended video featuring The Lego Movie (The Lego HISHE). In that video, they featured the Hero Café, since Batman and Superman were both in The Lego Movie.

Villain Pub

Villain Pub is the opposite of the Hero Café as it features the villains, and in the Villain Pub, they don't just feature Superhero villains (the once featured the Wicked Witch and Voldemort, for example).
