Tear Jerker: You Can Play This!
  • Iron Liz once showed up on JDub's livestream to ask for personal and professional advice. She began talking about her depression and panic attacks, and confessed that she tried to kill herself on her eighteenth birthday. Justin then calmly (and almost casually) admitted that he'd tried it, too.
    • The discussion also prompted a number of people in the chat to come forward with stories of their own struggles with depression and/or suicide attempts. It's a lot more common than you'd think.
    • Becomes Harsher in Hindsight given the news below.
      • Especially when Justin talks about how easy suicide is in the heat of the moment. And then states, "Wellbutrin saved my life." Ouch.
  • The trailer for the third anniversary special of You Can Play This. "This is the story of how I died..."
  • As of Thursday, January 23, 2014, Justin passed away of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, confirmed by his wife on Facebook. He will be missed.
    • Even worse, according to her original Facebook post, she was right outside the bathroom door talking to him when he did so.
  • In the wake of Justin's death the entries on the Heartwarming page come off as Harsher in Hindsight. A notable example is the entry where Justin paid tribute to the death of his friend.
  • These tributes to Justin by Doug and Angry Joe.
    • Joe's is especially difficult to watch. It's unspeakably jarring to see a normally energetic, happy-go-lucky guy red-eyed and inconsolable.
