What's your favorite idea?
I decided I might at least try to cough up a Christmas song parody, but the first thing I came up with was “Deck the Halls With Blood and Organs” and nothing rhymes with organs, so I suppose it’s back to the drawing board.

(I know someone already submitted it but this was in the lineup and I still took the time to work on it, I still wanted to post it)
What’s your favorite idea? Mine is decking the halls.
My latest contribution for the Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared fandom.
I suppose I can’t keep pretending that this doesn’t exist.
I can’t decide if it’s shippy or creepy and I admit that’s kind of amazing.
How this was even possible, I have no idea.

Notebook isn’t a huge fan of Christmas.
"lets get creative"
suck up your surroundings
take it in and vomit it back out
eat your heart out
consume the very thing that held you back
consume your brain washer
grow up how you want
throw their brains at the wall and watch it splatter
"they deserved it, their black sludge oozed into my canvas"
you have done what the wanted, the very act they expected from you
so celebrate with your dance,
your worship of the rain
celebrate what you did and did not do
you have created.
My analysis always just comes down to, “Some weirdos got creative with puppets and organs,” which really isn’t that interesting to read.
Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a short musical film directed by Becky Sloan & Joseph Pelling. It begins like an innocent puppet sketch in the vein on shows like Sesame Street, but it gets increasignly dark. It seems like a flat, shock video, but there’s a deeper meaning to it.
It’s a methaphor on how people are manipulated by the media. How children are conditioned to think in a certain way by tv shows that are supposed to help them develop.
By watching the video again, I found more stuff that may be clues about the deeper meaning on the video.
- We see a newspaper called The Right Wing.
- There’s a callendar with the date June 19. If someone know what this means, let me know, because I didn’t think of anything, nor found anything online; but this probably means something else, because it gets a lot of exposition (it reapears when the notebook it’s on the fridge). I suspect it may be the date of the filming of the video.
- The Notebook says “I use my hair to express myself”, the hairy puppet responds that he doesn’t get it, and she just repeats the same line, with the same voice tone and everything.
- The puppets don’t see anything in clouds in the sky, until the Notebook puts a monocle in her own eye. They all see the same cloudforms.
- When a puppet draws something on his own, without the “help” of the Notebook, she just throws black paint over it with little to no explanation (she only says that he “needs to slow down”).
- The Notebook tells the puppet to write their favourite color by forming letters with leaves. Then she rejects the green one, beacause “is not a creative color”. This may mean that people are conditioned to think a certain way by the things that media “strongly suggests”, if you take account that the color wheel the Notebook shows lacks green. So TV mades people to think unaturally, based on unrealistic things they show us, rather that the stuff around us (the puppet probably picked green from the leaves. Also, there’s studies that say that the color green actually makes people more inspired.
But also, I find it curious that the other colours, the ones that are approved by the Notebook, are blue and red, the colours used by the two political partys in the US goberment, as oposing to multy-party system.
- We see a shot where we see the “behind the scenes”, showing that this is really a TV production, rather that real life in-universe.
- The puppets become humans in costumes. This could mean that they “grow up”, saying that children grow up to think on a certain way, becoming the adults the media wants them to be.
- The puppets eat a cake that seems to have an human heart and brains as the dough. The Notebook had mentioned before that they had “listen to their heart and brain” before. It may mean that the media consumes our feelings and thoughts.
Then we see a piece of meat, retreating on a mouse hole. This could mean that the media makes us to hide certain feelings or ideas.
- The only time the Notebook shows in that dark and creepy part of the video, is to take an eye on the yellow guy, the one that “gave her more trouble” as a puppet (remember he’s the one who painted the clown and picked the color green).
- Finally, the Notebook says that “we should agree to never be creative again”. As saying that getting creative gets you trouble, so you should not try it.
Someone came up with a new analysis instead of copying and pasting one. It’s a Christmas miracle!
