Even Samara'd freak out watching this video ...

If there is ever one song that you should not listen under the influence of hallucinogens or other mind-altering substances, it would be "Pizza Song," quite possibly one of the creepiest-sounding tracks in existence.

I kept thinking is that the Olsen twins? Then I saw the tags.
Song made me think of Ween. I'd put it up there with Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down) on the creepy scale.

I couldn't watch it to the end - did their eyes start glowing by any chance?

Another one to avoid under the influence - Skinny Puppy's Left Hand Shake.

Looks, upon further investigation, like it's an excerpt of this longer clip, which is equally disturbing but may be too much of a good creepy thing. (By the way, the "normal" version of the song is inherently creepy, too, methinks, and the camerawork will give you seasickness, no joke.)

This is somehow very, very creepy and also giving me VIVID AS FUCK flashbacks to the whole zeitgeist of the mid-'90s.

The "normal" version may be even creepier though (or since) it lacks the over-the-top deliberate craziness of the slow reverby PCP world version. It sounds less like the inside of Manson's head but the fact that some people went to a not insignificant expense and effort to bring it into existence as wholesome kid's entertainment...

I think music's quality is directly proportional to how much it's been slowed down.

Consider Justin Bieber's U Smile, and then it slowed down 800%. It becomes the best meditation song ever, rather than a mediocre pop song by an overrated tween idol.

I suppose that every song is probably just a snipped, slowed down, from the ur-song, a song that lives in the collective unconsciousness. It's a blaring, horrid blast that's over in under a millisecond that sounds truly awful, but from it, we can derive every song that we have ever enjoyed.

They'll find it as scientists learn to better reverse-engineer brains. But it will take audio technology beyond what we currently possess to process it.

That's pretty awesome. I must have a high tolerance for creep. I don't know what I would think without the visuals though, they add sooooo much.

i couldn't figure out why this was made in the first place, let alone why it was 'enhanced.' so, from wcitymike's normal link above:
Gimme Pizza music video from "You're Invited To Mary-Kate and Ashley's Sleepover Party" Staring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and featuring Cara DeLizia (Fi from "So Weird"). Composed by Jeremy Sweet, Ron Kenan, Kussa Mahchi, and Shuki Levy.
video aside, those olsen twins are creepy in any context.

The original is more disturbing than the slow version. Gooooourmaaaay.

Feels like 5 AM the morning after too many pints of dark ale, with the half awake compulsive mental repetition and nausea. I could only handle 20 seconds.

Just want to chime in as a counterpoint that I am about the right age to have seen this as an actual under-ten year old, and my sister and I LOVED this video, though I still have nightmares about being forced to eat the pizza created in this song. That said, this version is creepy as sin.

Maybe it's 'cause I just woke up, but I laughed for the entire 3:41. Happy Sunday!!

I almost posted this. I watched this twice last night, and then I showed it to my wife, who tolerated it for about 30 seconds. That's kinda a metaphor for our relationship.

I adore artistic interventions like this—a found object, given the most minimal, Zen-like, almost thoughtless of treatments—like being brushed with a feather—and coming out the other end as something profoundly different and strange and magical and glorious.

Or perhaps I'm overthinking this. P-I-Z-Z-A, GIMME PIZZA

This is so addictive. And concur, the original is just as creepy. Those are some of the fastest edits in the history of asscinema. The editor must have been on ridic amounts of amphetamines. I can just picture the director, high as a kite, late night editing this kidlet video screaming "FASTER, make it FASTER! I'm a genius!"

What was creepiest to me was that I didn't recognize the Olsen Twins, because I just saw a pair of healthy little girls instead of sallow, drug-addled waifs.

The weird thing about the full-speed one is how unnatural the voices are. Slowed down, sure, it's all hellish, but at full speed it becomes apparent that the voices are just overdubbed by adults putting on falsettos.

Everyone's gone home and you're in the lounge with your feet on the heater and there are empties and chip packets and someone's wallet and a lighter and it's really bright and you're not drunk any more but every noise is an assault and your face is sore for some reason and you can hear "smack
my bitch up" through the wall of your flat and one of the neighbours is smoking on your shared balcony and it must be around five am because the recycling truck is idling outside and there's a bjork music video on tv and you're thinking of tidying up but you don't wanna fucking move and you there's a risk you'll wake up Simon's cousin, who's sleeping on the three seater, which is funny cause he's slept through almost everything else but yeah, and then your other flatmate comes home with burger king and a guy from the radio station where he works and he sits far too close to you for your liking and clearly hasn't showered in a while and wants to talk about soft cell and you're mostly sure he's being ironic but he doesn't seem smart enough and about four years later the bjork video ends and this begins and on the first impression you're confu by the fact that she ordered the pizza and it was not only ready but delivered immediately but by the end of the song it's changed your life and you're never gonna sleep well again.
