Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared: 2


The sequel we never knew we wanted. This short by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling is fantastic. The writing, the animations, the sets, everything, just brilliant. Ahhhh, I have to watch it again. It has the same vibes as the creepiest video on Youtube (cocka-doodly-doodly-doo).

If you watched the first episode “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” you know this is gonna get a little dark. Watch it below!

      i am surprised there are not more comments here, i think this is one of the best things ive ever posted. i at least expected a few comments from people who were a little scared.

      • Joost Koster

        yea it looks like a show for kids just like the creepiest video you linked. man that was creepy haha

  • Tim Breese

    This is a masterpiece on a number of levels. I have to watch a few more times to figure out how they did that. The puppets and animation are amazing…really cool and very tripped out. Awesome!

    I really liked how the writing fits in with the visuals so tightly.
    take characters sees so terrified of the clock. Reminds me of the psychology of a Clockwork Orange.

      the writing is so good, the best part i think

  • Steven

    Wait, how does time make fingers bleed? i don’t care, i love this.

  • Christy

    every one of their videos reminds me of design school. starts off so lovely… end of term there is missing fingers and pure, unadulterated horror.

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.
