  • You know the legend,

  • but it's time to uncover the haunting truth

  • about The Flying Dutchman.

  • [laughing maniacally]

  • This is Bikini Bottom Mysteries.

  • All who live in Bikini Bottom

  • have heard the tale of the Flying Dutchman.

  • [screaming]

  • A notorious flirt.

  • You like ponies? I like ponies!

  • Is that a wedding ring?

  • With the ability to distort time, space and reality itself.

  • No, that's impossible!

  • So sure, he may seem like a run-of-the-mill spirit,

  • but don't be fooled, because this apparition

  • may not be what he appears.

  • Exhibit A.

  • Suspicious origins.

  • The legend of the Flying Dutchman

  • strikes fear into the hearts of children everywhere.

  • When he died, they used his body as a window display!

  • Now he haunts the seven seas because he was never put to rest.

  • A haunting story, no doubt.

  • But is it true?

  • Or could it be... a shameless lie?

  • There are two problems with this story.

  • Number one.

  • We're not convinced that being used as a fashion display

  • would even upset the Dutchman at all!

  • In fact, all evidence suggests that the Dutchman loves fashion.

  • Looking good!

  • He's obsessed with his fashionable dining sock.

  • He always carries his name brand Souls bag

  • He's precious about his beard.

  • My beard!

  • And he even has a perfume department on board his ship!

  • The perfume department!

  • Number two.

  • What if we told you we had the Dutchman on record

  • blatantly contradicting his own origin story.

  • Hmm, it's a little torn.

  • 'Course it was the shirt I was buried in.

  • - He was never put to rest. - The shirt I was buried in.

  • Never put to rest.

  • How could he have been buried in that shirt

  • if he was supposedly never... put... buried... at all?

  • So is this origin story just a lie?

  • Mere propaganda used by Flying Dutchman apologists

  • to justify his horrific ghostly deeds?

  • Which brings us to...

  • Exhibit B.

  • Davy Jones.

  • All who are familiar with the legend know that the Flying Dutchman

  • is a servant of Davy Jones.

  • I'm here to escort you to the resting place

  • of all bad under-sea folk!

  • Davy Jones' Locker!

  • But if this is Davy Jones' locker, then where exactly is Davy?

  • And what's the deal with all these socks?

  • Davy Jones works out a lot.

  • These are his socks.

  • A likely story with only one problem.

  • This is the last known sighting of Davy Jones.

  • A skeleton in the Flying Dutchman's closet!

  • Excuse me, Davy.

  • So who's socks are they really?

  • Who do you know that has a strange affinity for socks?

  • Gimme back my sock!

  • Sometimes I like to wear this little sock.

  • Ha, it's a good thing I found my dining sock!

  • Let's break this down.

  • Here's a guy who loves socks.

  • There's a bunch of socks in this locker.

  • And the owner of the locker is a skeleton in this guys closet?

  • What kind of sicko would go this far just for a place to store his socks?

  • Maybe...

  • A lonely sicko.

  • Exhibit C.

  • Crippling loneliness.

  • Isn't it strange that SpongeBob has encountered the Flying Dutchman

  • over ten times?

  • Who dares back sass the Flying Dutchman?

  • That would be me!

  • SpongeBob BackSassPants!

  • Stop and ask yourself:

  • how many encounters with powerful, un-dead ghostly psychopomps

  • have you had in your life?

  • One, maybe two, tops?

  • Do you even know what psychopump is?

  • But it seems like the Dutchman actually goes out of his way

  • to hang out with SpongeBob.

  • He shows up randomly to teach him how to tie knots.

  • The pretzel nut!

  • He drops his anchor right on SpongeBob's house,

  • supposedly by accident.

  • And on multiple occasions he tries to make SpongeBob

  • part of his ghostly crew.

  • Could that really be a coincidence?

  • Or is it possible that the Dutchman isn't so evil?

  • Could all the haunting really just be a cry for help?

  • Maybe all he ever wanted was a friend.

  • Now, that's the Flying Dutchman I know!

  • After all, what good is eternity on a ghost ship

  • if you have no one to share it with?

  • What good is your own personal perfume department

  • if there's no one to comment on how good you smell?

  • And what good's a dining sock if you're dining alone?

  • No one but the skeleton in your closet to keep you company.

  • Excuse me, Davy.

  • So behind all the horrifying imagery,

  • scary stories and implications of foul play,

  • The Flying Dutchman might just be a lonely pirate looking for a friend.

  • We may never know the truth, but one thing's for sure--

  • [humming]

  • One thing's for--

  • [humming]

  • One th--

  • One--

  • Oh, forget it.

  • [music playing]

  • And now, a Bikini Bottom Bonus Mystery.

  • We all remember this infamous eyelash sweater.

  • What's this thing made of?

  • Eyelashes!

  • But we were recently informed

  • that it appears to be SpongeBob's eyebrows that are missing.

  • And he only had six eyelashes anyway!

  • So what exactly is this sweater made of?

  • And what about this one?

  • I made this one with my tears!

  • How can there be a sweater made out of water

  • if they're already under water?

  • File this one under W for:

  • "Why Don't You Just Make A Normal Sweater?"

  • Have you seen something strange under the sea?

  • Leave us a comment and tune in next time for more investigations

  • that will blow your pores, strip your scales and flip your fins!

  • Like, subscribe, and remember,

  • if the pineapple fits... live in it.

You know the legend,
