Memento Mori. Unus Annus.
Remember death. One year.

―Unus Annus's motto

Unus Annus was a YouTube channel created by CrankGameplays (Unus) and Markiplier (Annus). This channel was deleted on Saturday, November 14, 2020, at exactly 12:00 A.M. PST on stream with Amy, Mark, and Ethan all grouped together for the deletion, exactly a year after they uploaded their first video on the channel.[1]

Now that the channel has been deleted, none of the channel's content will be re-uploaded on their own channels and all of its associated merchandise will no longer be available for purchase. Hence, they suggest their viewers to create memories in their unique experiences. Many have since suspected that the channel's true purpose seems to have been an experiment in how far YouTube's Community Guidelines could be pushed.

There are many archives online, due to the fact that they publicly stated that they had always planned to delete the channel. Some believe that archived videos on YouTube will be targeted with copyright takedown requests. Mark has stated that edited clips of Unus Annus's videos would be allowed, however full unedited archives would get taken down. The channel had 4.58 million subscribers and 867 million views before the channel was officially deleted. [2]

History

Three days after its initial launch, Markiplier and CrankGameplays uploaded a video on the same day with the same title, "This Will End in One Year".[3] Both videos have them explaining their new channel in a monotonous voice and a formal look. To promote their channel, Markiplier changed his profile picture to a blank white, while CrankGameplays changed his to a blank black. After two days of having those profile pictures, they changed it back to their own ones.

The channel was deleted at exactly 12:00 AM PST on November 14, 2020, following the other social media accounts for Unus Annus being privated in the hour prior. The channel had 4.58 million subscribers at the time of its deletion, and reached a peak of 1.5 million viewers watching the final livestream.

Although the original channel has now been deleted, there are many archives online. Mark has stated that edited clips of Unus Annus's videos would be allowed, however full unedited archives would get taken down. Despite this, many archive channels have persisted after the deletion of Unus Annus, much to Mark and Ethan's concern. They have pledged to take down those channels, which they have. However, there are so many, that many believe Mark and Ethan will have trouble keeping up.
