Human beings have way too much free time on their hands, and we have that to thank for the internet being such a bizarre place to hang out. The things people come up with never cease to amaze us here at the iHorror offices, and we’ve got a truly strange treat for you today.
Remember the Teletubbies? They were the stars of a same-named children’s TV series that aired from 1997 to 2001, and were depicted as giant toddlers of alien origin, clad in multi-colored jumpsuits. Totally weird, but the shit kids watch has always been totally weird.
Earlier this week, a man by the name of Mark Holland for whatever reason decided to take a picture of the Teletubbies and remove all the color from it, noting that the characters took on a sinister quality when viewed in black & white. That’s the image above, which is decidedly creepy.
After posting the photo, several people on Twitter noted that the image looked like a still from Joy Division’s music video for their song ‘Atmosphere,’ and it wasn’t long before someone picked up on that idea and ran with it – turning the black & white image into a haunting music video.
It was Christopher G. Brown who cut together the video, playing the song over black & white footage from Teletubbies. The results, well, they’re the stuff nightmares are made of. Enjoy.[youtube id=”98lOJGTe1M0″]
