The internet can be a wild and wacky place. Even creepy at times.
With Halloween upon us, it has had me thinking about some of the creepiest things I’ve seen on the web. Especially on the world center of internet videos, YouTube.
There is a ton of content on YouTube. You can find thousands of videos that will activate your creep meter. Unexplained mysteries, paranormal and alien sightings. You name it, and it is probably on there.
But when I think of unsettling videos, one comes to mind above all others. And that is “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared.”
Out of all the videos I could choose it might seem odd this is the one that bothers me. The video is set up like something you might see on a kid’s show.
Sounds innocent right? I thought that the first time I saw it too. But, boy oh boy was I wrong!
As the video goes on, eerie things start happening. The whole thing is directed so well that the slightest movement of a character, weird camera angle, or even an odd sound will give you chills.
Watching it for the first time is something I’ll never forget. I still remember where I was the first time I saw it. Yeah…..it’s one of those videos!
But since then, I have to admit it has been pretty fun sharing this video with friends and seeing their reaction to it. It is a conversation starter for sure!
I’m still not quite sure how the people who came up with this video did. I’m not even sure how to fully explain it. It is something you just have to see for yourself!
