Who is Bill Cipher and Why is He Trending in 2004?
Bill Cipher is a fictional character from the popular animated series Gravity Falls, created by Alex Hirsch. He is a triangular inter-dimensional demon who seeks to conquer all of reality and existence. He first appeared in the episode “Dreamscaperers” as the main antagonist, and later became the overarching villain of the series.
But why is he trending in 2004, more than a decade before the show aired? The answer lies in a mysterious website that was discovered by some internet users in late 2003. The website, named billcipher2004.com, features a cryptic message that reads:
“Greetings from Bill Cipher. I am here to tell you that the world as you know it will end soon. The year 2004 will be the beginning of a new era of chaos and destruction. You have been chosen to witness the dawn of Weirdmageddon. Do not try to stop me. Do not try to understand me. Just sit back and enjoy the show.”
The website also contains a countdown timer that ends on January 1st, 2004, and a link to a video that shows a distorted image of Bill Cipher’s eye, accompanied by eerie music and distorted voices. The video ends with Bill Cipher’s signature phrase: “Reality is an illusion, the universe is a hologram, buy gold, bye!”
Many people have speculated about the meaning and origin of this website. Some believe it is a prank or a hoax, while others think it is a viral marketing campaign for an upcoming project related to Gravity Falls. Some even claim that it is a genuine warning from Bill Cipher himself, who somehow managed to travel back in time and create the website as part of his plan to take over the world.
Whatever the case may be, Bill Cipher has certainly captured the attention and curiosity of many internet users in 2004. He has become a topic of discussion on various forums, blogs, and social media platforms. Some people have even created fan art, memes, and theories about him and his mysterious website.
Will Bill Cipher’s prophecy come true? Will he unleash his wrath upon the world in 2004? Or will he remain a fictional character from a future cartoon show? Only time will tell.
But what is Weirdmageddon exactly? According to the prophecy written by the Author of the journals, who is revealed to be Stan’s long-lost brother Ford Pines, Weirdmageddon is the event that occurs when Bill Cipher and his friends from the Nightmare Realm break through the interdimensional rift and invade Gravity Falls. The rift was accidentally created by Ford when he tried to build a portal to other dimensions, and was later opened by Gideon Gleeful, a former rival of the Pines family who made a deal with Bill.
When Weirdmageddon begins, Gravity Falls becomes a twisted and chaotic nightmare, where the laws of physics and logic no longer apply. The sky turns red and is filled with floating eyeballs, pyramids, and other bizarre shapes. The town is overrun by Bill’s minions, who capture, torture, or transform the residents into grotesque creatures. The only safe place is the Mystery Shack, which is protected by a barrier of unicorn hair that repels Bill’s magic.
The Pines family and their allies decide to fight back against Bill and his army, using Ford’s journals as a guide. They discover that there is a way to defeat Bill: a zodiac wheel that contains symbols representing ten people with a strong emotional bond. If these people join hands around the wheel, they can create a powerful force that can destroy Bill. However, finding these people and getting them to cooperate proves to be a difficult task, as Bill tries to stop them at every turn.
Will the Pines family and their friends be able to stop Bill Cipher and end Weirdmageddon? Or will they succumb to his madness and lose everything they love? Find out in the epic finale of Gravity Falls, airing on Disney Channel and Disney XD.
