Oh my god... it's the boss's office.


The Elevator Ending is the the ending that occurs when you continually go up and down the elevator in the Boss's Office that leads to the entrance to the Mind Control Facility.

This ending is exclusive to Ultra Deluxe.

Obtaining The Ending

Exit Stanley's office. At the 2 doors, pick the one on the left. Continue through the Boss's Office, and open the door. Once you reach the elevator, press the down button. Once the elevator has reached the bottom, press the up button. Repeat this a number of times.

The Ending

The Narrator will sarcastically comment about how Stanley coming back up to the Boss's Office "fleshed out the plot the story in new and fascinating ways" among other false praises. When Stanley goes back down, The Narrator assumes Stanley will continue on from here.

If Stanley goes up again, The Narrator will pretend to be in shock that the Boss's Office is still at the top of the elevator, even adding a "dun dun dun" sound effect. The Narrator, now clearly bored, cuts to a screen with a drinking bird toy drinking from a coffee cup with "Please Hold" on-screen so he can process Stanley's storytelling. After it ends, he puts it back up, needing more time to process. Once Stanley goes back down, The Narrator again acts shocked.

If Stanley goes back up a third time, the Narrator will stop and slow down the elevator, praising him for switching from each location. The Narrator sarcastically claims to perceive it as a revolutionary breakthrough in art that should be appreciated and lived up to. The Narrator even goes so far as to organize a press conference for Stanley to explain his creative genius to masses, after which Stanley exits into and is able to explore the backstage area of the press conference.

Eventually, Stanley finds his way to the stage, before an audience of thousands of fans cheering him on. He approaches the podium, and the game fades to white before resetting.

With The Bucket

If Stanley is holding The Bucket, the Narrator explains that Stanley's tedious and repetitive trips up and down the elevator were due to his strange captivation with the number 3 on the bosses' keypad. The Bucket is unable to see the merit in this new and profound hobby, which upsets Stanley.

Eventually, Stanley organizes his own press conference, hoping to explain to The Bucket about the nuance and wonder of the Number 3. The backstage area is largely similar save for minor cosmetic changes such as the number 3 written on numerous surfaces, but upon stepping out on stage Stanley finds the entire center empty, with nobody caring to hear him speak about his new passion.

Eventually the Narrator describes Stanley and The Bucket drifting apart, their friendship destroyed by their inability to understand one another, before the game resets.
