    The Happy Birthday tape is located in the main house attic in a locker. Here are the steps to solve this tape, do this step really quick for the 5min limit.

    If you want you can skip telescope steps 5-7 and use the code directly. Is always the same code (chainsaw man – raven on hat – baby)

    Step 1: pick up candle from the mannequin , walk to cake room and listen to Lucas
    Step 2: turn on the stove and light the candle
    Step 3: go to the door with the rope and cut through the rope with the candle, pick up the empty balloon in this room
    Step 4: use the balloon at the pipe (gasleak) in the wall near the stove and you get the quill pen

    If you are too slow or want a little bit time saving you can skip this 3 steps and you can directly go to step 8

    Step 5: go to the toilet, use the toilett and pick up the dirty telescope
    Step 6: clear the telescope at the passage to the cake
    Step 7: use the telescope and look to the monitoring system, you will see a code (chainsaw man – raven on hat – baby)

    Step 8: use the code inside the cake room and pick up the straw doll and also the winding key from the keg
    Step 9: use the straw doll at the stove and you get the dummy finger
    Step 10: Put the dummy finger, quill pen and window key on the mannequin where you got the candle
    Step 11: go to the room where you got the balloon and enter the code LOSER, pick up the valve handle in the next room on the wall
    Step 12: use the valve handle at the pipe in the cake room
    Step 13: Light up the candle at the stove and put it on cake

    l BlackBrian7 lI haven't done this yet, but could you not just type in LOSER and get the valve, without doing any of the clown steps? Seems like it would shorten it down to almost no time at all (unless it isn't allowed).

    As in doing Step 1-3 then skipping to Step 11-13.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it wont let you enter the password without the tattoo first :)

    This achievement opportunity is available after obtaining the Snake Key. In order to obtain the VHS, visit the Kid's Room in the Main House 2F and activate the switch in the lamp shade. Then, climb the ladder and discover it in the cabinet. Now take the VHS to a VHS Player to start it. A VHS Player can be found in the room next to the Kid's Room.

    Once the VHS starts, you have 5 minutes to complete the steps and put the candle on the cake. The steps go as follows:
    1 - Take the candle, enter the cake room and wait for the dialogue to end.
    2 - Enter the combination into the small lock box. The combination will always be Chainsaw Man, Tombstone, Fetus. Pick up the straw doll inside.
    3 - Pick up the Winding Key from the barrel.
    4 - Go to the stove, light it, and light the candle. Use the candle to open the door held shut by a rope.
    5 - Find the yellow balloon in the balloon room. Take the balloon and attach it to the leaky gas pipe. It will explode and give you a Quill Pen.
    6 - Go to the stove and light the straw doll to reveal a Dummy Finger.
    7 - Attach the 3 items to the clown doll in order: Dummy Finger, Quill Pen and Winding Key. Receive the password LOSER.
    8 - Go the the balloon room and open the door using the password. Grab the Valve Handle.
    9 - Go to the cake room and attach the valve handle to the pipe to stop the water.
    10 - Light your candle using the stove and place the candle on the cake to finish the timer and the VHS.

    The same as all of the above really. The achievement has proved to be quite glitchy for people. Just to confirm, the achievement unlocks as soon as you put the candle in the cake, as seen in my video.

    Any questions, give me a shout.
