A man is crouching in a corner with a phone, clearly scared.
Phone: What is your emergency?
Man: I just got to my brother’s office, and… I think he’s dead.
Phone: Has he stopped breathing?
Man: I don’t know. I haven’t seen him.
Phone: What makes you think he’s dead?
More of the room is revealed to show a dark room with a swivel chair facing away, the back of someone’s head tilting to the side a bit.
Man: He’s in a swivel chair facing away!
Phone: We’ll send an investigative team immediately.

Comments on Dead on Arrival
Yep, he’s dead.
Or, worse even, undead and just waiting for a person to approach him for tasty brains.
This guy is much smarter than most movie people. They’d go up, turn the chair around, and– RUN IT’S A ZOMBIE!
Or, RUN THE VILLAIN WHO KILLED HIM IS STILL THERE! Take your pick.
He should be careful. The brother might be alive! He could turn around any second to reveal his evil plan!
He has a longhair cat in his lap, I’m sure of it!
Taking this comic to the logical conclusion:
Spinning around in a chair causes you to to transition between life and death depending on whether you’re facing the desk. If there is no desk, it would be the closest wall. This would mean narrow hallways, potentially, could have two “dead points.”
It’s Schrödinger’s Chair!
Maybe it depends on whether you swivel them clockwise or counterclockwise.
Arr! Swivel me timbers!
I love how genre savvy the 911 operator is.
