1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Macdeath", Way to Die #615, is the first death to be featured in "Better Them Than Us", which aired on March 16, 2011.


A retired dot com (internet-based business) company millionaire and current narcissistic owner of a theater named Franklin assigns himself as the lead role in a play he's producing. While doing a flying scene with another actor who portrayed another pirate, the holster holding him up is unable to hold his weight, causing it to break. The frayed edge of the cord then unwinds and races through the system of pulleys at over 700 Mph(1120 km/h), passing through the air and slashing Franklin's jugular vein, much to the shock of the actress who portrayed a princess.
