"Don't Hug Me I'm Scared" Continues in Episode 5

"Don't Hug Me I'm Scared" Continues in Episode 5

And it's suitably fucked up.

Last year, creative team Becky And Joe decided they needed a break from directing amazing Tame Impala music videos and focused on creating technicolour nightmare fuel in earnest. The result was Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, a children’s show you’d never want your children to see. Things start out nice enough, with adorable characters and earwormy jingles you might see in a Seasame Street short, but things get real dark, real quick. Episodes about being creative result in cult-like death art, and when dealing with the concept of time, the colourful protagonists’ flesh melts off their bones as they learn the dangers of time’s unstoppable forward-march.

You can’t help but watch with a smile on your face though, as cute characters sing about death with melodies to rival the best pop songs you can name.  Check out the newest installment below and make sure you catch up on any episodes you may have missed, just don't let your little brother see it.
