Personally, I prefer those plastic pumpkins that never get gross and rotted, but that’s just me. It seems that pumpkin carving is still a fun Halloween activity that people seem to love. It’s one of the rare Halloween traditions that I don’t really care for…
I found this video clip on YouTube called, The Great Martian War. It was obviously faked, but it looked so good that it confused me.
The only description was this:
On its 100th anniversary, The Great Martian War tells the story of the catastrophic events and unimaginable horrors of 1913-17, when Humankind was pitted against a savage Alien invasion.
It had the feel of a hundred year old film, but something about the way the Martians moved seemed unreal. It was touted as original and I just HAD to know what was going on with this example of creepiness. I found a link to The History Channel, but it still acted as if it were a real thing…
The Great Martian War 1913–1917 is a 2013 Canadian/UK made-for-television science fiction film docudrama, produced by Michael Kot, Steve Maher, and Mike Slee, and also directed by Mike Slee, that unfolds in the style of an episode from the History TV Channel.
It’s a fun movie to watch in a War of the Worlds kind of way. I almost fell for it, War of the Worlds style, but thankfully, Google saved the day.
This video collection from Top5 was pretty creepy:
The most interesting one is the Webdriver Torso story. I do believe that it’s something that Google uses to test YouTube in some manner, but it is very interesting. Why would they post it? I love fun mysteries like these!
I tried to ally their fears about Bloody Mary by going into the bathroom without lights and a candle and saying her name the requisite number of times, but it just scared them so much that they wouldn’t let me say the last one. I remember being that scared when I was a kid and I kind of miss it.
