Apologies but it looks like the video has been taken down by the man. Not to endorse copyright violation but, as a fan of the show, I highly recommend the clip if ever you have a chance to view it.

Warning: here be spoilers!

It’d be quite the understatement to suggest How I Met Your Mother fans were displeased with this week’s finale. In fact, for every one person who enjoyed the series closer, ten more seemed eager to violently scrub it from their memory.

If you find yourself in the latter camp, we have a tiny silver lining from you. A disgruntled fan named Ricardo J. Dylan decided to take matters into his own hands. How? By posting an alternate ending to the long-running series  (see below).

“This is my personal cut of the ending,”; Ricardo says. “I believe that this is more like the ending that we deserve and that through all this years have been waiting for, in my mind this is how I will personally remember the end of my favorite show.”;

As many of you now know, the last few minutes of the finale revealed Ted’s wife — a.k.a. “The Mother’ — died of some mystery illness, paving the way for him to get back together with Robin (who divorced Barney for some reason, you see).

Like many fans, Ricardo didn’t exactly cotton to any of this. So a few well-placed tweaks in Final Cut and voila! — a brand new ending sure to please even the most disgruntled of HIMYM aficionados. Enjoy!
