Jay remonstrates, "Power of Satan does not qualify. The two who died did nothing more than watch a pageant about God and the Devil. This is not inherently stupid, unless there were significant warnings for those with heart conditions or the like. It was the actor's performance which killed them, but the rules state that the deceased must make the 'ultimate sacrifice of their own lives.' Note the word 'own.'"
Ariadne differs: "The Darwin award goes to the two members of the audience who were dim-witted enough to let the actor's creative performance performance spook them enough to suffer heart attacks. Ergo their own stupidity did INDEED contribute to their demise. The Darwin award is appropriate."
