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

Calex dEUSIf it doesn't lock and you are too slow don't retry , stop the tape and do it again as it won't unlock from a retry.

xBrushedRedxThis one is being really buggy for me. I have done this well within 5 minutes and it won't give me the achievement

GrubbmeisterI can confirm that I finished the Birthday Video, in what I thought was 5 minutes, but it did not pop up, so I paused and pressed "Retry" as soon as I had control of Ethan again. (It loaded me right in front of the television.) I popped in that good ol' VHS and ran through it as fast as possible and voila... it popped!

E vee dubThe achievement unlocks just after placing the lit candle on the cake.

If you don't succeed, just play the tape again. No need to reload a save.

E vee dubAlso, do not bother with the telescope or toilet. Those steps are not needed.

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 :)
