"Tunnel Vision", Way to Die #99, is the sixth death to death featured in "Enter the Ferret", which has been originally aired on March 12, 2012.


Dennis is a cheesesteak vendor at a Philadelphia Art Fair. When new rival Stan opens shop, Dennis starts a pricing war, which escalates with a food fight. When Stan wins the pricing war, Dennis snaps. He tries to set Stan's place on fire with a Molotov cocktail. However, Dennis detonates the Molotov too close to himself, setting himself on fire instead and runs, trying to escape, into what he thinks is a tunnel. Unaware that the "tunnel" he ran into was actually a wall decorated in 3D chalk art, he slams into it and dies from multiple skull fractures.
