Thus proving, yet again, why clowns are scary.

I'm pretty sure I've been subliminally compelled to assassinate Mayor McCheese, now.

Play that in the background while whizzing around the Faces In Places blog mentioned a bit further down. It'll mess you UP.

This would be better without the music. And by "better" I mean "even less explicable".

I would like to think that this sort of thing makes me wonder about the nature of media, the blurry border between content and presentation, the repurposing of popular culture iconography, or the inevitable results as editing equipment becomes more affordable and accessible.

But all I really thought was 'Oh, god, turn it off! Off, NOW!'

I have no sound at work, I could only sneak a mute peek at the videos.
If sound makes them worse, I am getting back to work in earnest.

Suddenly Negativland and Barnes and Barnes seem less weird.

And in case you haven't seen it already, here's the original and still ultimate japanese ronald mcdonald remix: "ronald mcdonald insanity" (aka mcroll).

(And for bonus points, can you spot the connection between that insanity and this curious MeFi incident?)

The McGiygas mentioned above is still the most excellent example of Nightmare Fuel I know of.

Gene Ray makes more sense than this.

lucidium: "Ronald Mc Giygas"

Yeah I will have the Richard P. McJames meal supersized with a side of Chris McCunningham - and does that come with the Aphex Twin action figure or do I need to order the McCreepy meal to get that?

Best of the web?






I think not.

I see your Japanese Ronald Macdonald 5th symphony, and raise you Japanese "Beethoven's 5th Symphony Breakfast" choir.
A vocal group in Japan took Beethoven’s 5th symphony and made a vocal interpretation. But instead of just singing the music, they added a little parody. A family starts discussing what they’re going to eat for breakfast (”asagohan”). They discuss many options ("maze gohan" is mixed rice "shiro gohan" is white rice), and everytime they are about to reach an agreement, some other idea sparks that makes them start discussing it again. In the end, they discussed for so long that the breakfast time is over, and it is time to prepare lunch.

Wow, well, that was an experience. When I was a child, I absolutely HATED clowns. (I won a spelling bee when I was 4 years old and the prize was a clown that laughed and cackled when the string on its back was pulled. I cried on stage.) Thanks for the memories!

If Ronald McGiygas is too much, maybe the Ronald McChocobo is more your speed.
