- "As the reverse Song of Healing repeated for what must have been the 50th time, I just remember standing in the middle of South Clock Town realizing that I had never felt so alone in a video game before."
- —Jadusable, in the summary for day four.wmv
day four.wmv is the first video of the Haunted Cartridge Arc, and the third canon video in the ARG. It is preceded by the Prologue's Prototype: All Consume Kills (Warning: Extremely Graphic) and followed by BEN.wmv.
On September 7th, 2010, a 4chan user named Jadusable posted a strange incident to /x/, recalling his encounter with a haunted copy of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. This video shows the initial events triggered by BEN, the malevolent spirit contained within the cartridge.
Link makes his way around Clock Town after having been followed by several Elegy of Emptiness statues; the reversed Song of Healing plays in place of the usual music. He runs through West Clock Town, which is missing several ground and wall textures, and enters the Swordsman's School. In the back room of the school, another statue spawns over him. He focuses the camera on it several times before attacking it, causing it to spawn again. The Happy Mask Salesman appears very briefly, which cuts to both Link and the statue facing the camera, set to the screams of the Skull Kid. The scream loops until Link exits the building.
The game warps Link to the Underground Tunnel used by the Bombers, where the reversed Song of Healing begins playing again and the statue begins spawning over him aggressively as he attempts to leave. He is taken to South Clock Town, where he remains for a few seconds before the screen fades to black with a ReDead scream, which cuts to the "Dawn of a New Day" screen.
Link is then spawned on top of the Clock Tower during the fight with Skull Kid, where the reversed Ikana Valley theme plays. After attacking him with arrows, Link is lifted from the ground, set on fire, and electrocuted while the Skull Kid laughs. When he respawns, Link tries to approach the Skull Kid, but is killed as before. The third time, he attempts to play the Song of Time, but is killed before he can complete it.
He respawns, but is lying on the ground as if dead, with no background music the Skull Kid watching from behind him. He remains there for several seconds before the screen cuts to black and the phrase, "You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?" appears on the screen, punctuated by the laugh of the Happy Mask Salesman. A short but loud clip of the Skull Kid scream plays over a moving Majora's Mask for less than a second, before the game is reset.
When the file screen is shown, the only file is named "YOURTURN." When chosen, Link spawns on the ground as before, the camera much closer to him now. The Skull Kid laughs ten times before the eleventh is cut off by the game's reset. Upon reaching the file screen again, the files now read "YOURTURN" and "BEN."
