“Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” is About Brainwashing by Mass Media and … MKULTRA

243

“Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” is a web series of six enigmatic videos that has grown into a “cult phenomenon”. Behind the weirdness, however, is a deeper message: It is about mass media brainwashing and MKULTRA.

Over the last few years, I’ve received quite a few e-mails regarding Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared, a web series involving puppets and a whole lot of creepiness. VC readers astutely identified symbols and messages in the videos that pointed towards a deeper and more disturbing meaning. Now that the final video has been published and the story is complete, I can wholeheartedly agree with these readers: Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is not merely about random creepiness. It conceals a message about the effects of mass media on the world, how it shapes and molds people’s opinions, and how it preys deliberately on young, impressionable minds. Even more disturbing, it also depicts the manipulation of agents working in the media using actual MKULTRA brainwashing techniques until they are completely broken down. Pretty heavy stuff for a show about puppets.

The videos were created by British artists Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling in 2011. Each episode is made to appear like a typical children’s television program, consisting of singing and talking puppets similar to those of Sesame Street, but eventually the story takes a dark turn, usually involving gore. The first episode was reportedly created with little to no budget. After the video gained popularity, a second video was commissioned by Channel 4, a British television station (note that this station also sponsored Viktoria Modesta’s “Prototype”, a music video that is full of MK symbolism – read my article about it here). The series then took off, with each episode going deeper into the depths of Monarch Programming (if you don’t know what that is, please read this article first). More than simply satirizing children’s shows, Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared paints a bleak picture of mass media and society as a whole. Let’s look at the episodes.

Episode 1

The first episode begins with the three protagonists of the show, Red Guy, Yellow Guy, and Duck Guy, sitting around a kitchen table. A few items shown in this scene will reappear throughout the series, notably the date of June 19th and the checkerboard pattern.

Then Sketchbook comes to life and explains to the friends how to “be creative”.

The notepad teaches the puppets how to watch clouds creatively.

However, we quickly realize that there are strong contradictions in Sketchbook’s message.

When Yellow Guy paints a picture of a clown, the notepad tells him "Hold down friend you might need to slow it down"and black paint starts dripping down the painting.
When Yellow Guy paints a picture of a clown, Sketchbook tells him “Hold down friend you might need to slow it down”. Then black paint slowly starts drips down the painting.
When Yellow Guy writes that green is his favorite color, Sketchbook denies his answer stating that "Green is not a creative color".
When asked for his favorite color, Yellow Guy writes green. Sketchbook denies his answer stating that “Green is not a creative color”.

When Sketchbook says: “Listen to your heart, listen to the rain, listen to the voices inside your brain”, things start to get dark.

First we see the camera showing the "behind the scenes" of the TV show, letting us know that the puppets are used to indoctrinate children with subversive messages.

Then, when the puppets "get creative", they do a bunch of disturbing things and completely freak out, as if possessed by something evil.
Then the puppets “get creative”, which means that they do a bunch of disturbing things and completely freak out.

This first episode therefore sets the stage for the rest of the series. It depicts three puppets being used somewhat unwillingly in a TV show that teaches unhealthy messages to children.

Episode 2

The second video is called TIME and features Tony the Talking Clock who teaches about the unstopping nature of time … and that everybody will be subjected to inevitable death and decay.

Although Tony the Talking Clock sings about time continually advancing forward, time is apparently still in the world of the puppets. Throughout the series, it is clear that it is always the same day.

The clock points to a picture of the three friends. It is dated 19-06-55 (June 19th 1955), the "today's" in each video.

The clock then takes the friends on a psychedelic journey through time from the past to the future.

Red Guy and Duck Guy are then seen with their brains connected to a giant computer topped by a giant eyeball. We are starting to understand that the puppets are under litteral mind control.
Red Guy and Duck Guy are then seen with their brains connected to a giant computer topped by a giant eyeball. We are starting to understand that the puppets are under literal mind control. The pictures on the wall and the calendar imply that nothing is real in their minds.

It is during this episode that we first see Roy, Yellow Guy’s father. Every time we see him, an eerie music play in the background.

Yellow Guy's father is the MK handler behind it all ... and Yellow Guy will turnout to be the programmed slave.
Yellow Guy’s father is the MK handler behind it all … and Yellow Guy will turn out to be the programmed slave.

In each episode, a “friendly” character pops out of nowhere to sing an educational song. But it always ends up showing its true face: Evil, sadistic and manipulative. In short, they are sent by the handler to program the puppets, who are then used to program TV viewers. Through hypnotic and subversive songs, the singing “friends” lure the puppets into a dissociative state where trauma awaits them.

The clock gets extremely angry when Duck Guy proposes an alternative definition of time. It also creepily watches on as time fast forwards and the puppets experiment decay in real time.

The puppets freak out as they see death in fast forward. Trauma.
The puppets witness how their body will decay with time. In the world of MK they are being subjected to trauma.

We then realize that this entire ordeal was all part of the friends’ TV show.

As we see the Tony the Talking Clock on the TV, the blurring between reality, fiction and media is becoming indistinguishable.

HELP

In the two short videos HELP and HELP #2, the puppets are held captive by assailants requesting money. Although this was primarily a way to promote the Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared Kickstarter campaign, the videos continued to reinforce the concept of the puppets as victims of trauma.

Red Guy forced to read a memo under threat of being hit on the head with a hammer by some monster. The date is still June 19th 1955.

Episode 3

The third installment of the series revolves around the concept of love and gets deeper into the concept of mind control.

The video begins with missing sign featuring the three characters. They've been missing since June 19th...which is today.
The video begins with a “Still Missing” sign featuring the three characters. They’ve been missing since June 19th … which is today.

As MK slaves, the puppets are literally “missing” from reality,  where time stands still (despite what Tony the Talking Clock was singing about).

Despite being missing, the three friends are enjoying a picnic outside.
Although they are “missing”, the three friends are enjoying a picnic outside.

The puppets are sitting, once again, on a dualistic checkerboard pattern surface. In occult symbolism, the checkerboard pattern is the ritualistic surface on which profound transformation occurs. In mind control, these occult properties are used during programming.

Several paintings by Kim Noble (a survivor of MKULTRA) prominently feature dualistic patterns. It is an integral part of programming.

Then Yellow Guy sees something symbolic that indicates the beginning of programming.

A butterfly flies around Yellow Guy who is fascinated by it.

As stated in multiple articles on this site, media that uses Monarch programming symbolism often indicates the beginning of a programming sequence with a butterfly that lures the slave into an alternate reality (such as in Pink’s Just Like Fire music video). In this case, the butterfly leads Yellow Guy to complete dissociation.

Yellow Guy goes literally "over the rainbow" (which means dissociation in MKULTRA terms).
Yellow Guy literally goes “over the rainbow” (code for dissociation in Monarch mind control). The butterfly actually says “come on, just over the rainbow”.

In each video, the handler’s programming is represented by a cute character who leads the puppet to trauma. In the above image, Yellow Guy is literally in the clouds with strange characters and even a mushroom, which might imply that he is being drugged.

As usual, things turn dark and disturbing very quickly. Yellow Guy (who is not the sharpest tool in the shed) is tricked in believing that nobody will ever love him … unless he does what the butterfly says.

“This is your chance to start anew. And all we’re asking you to do is to is change your name, and clean your brain and forget about anything you ever knew.”

He's being literally brainwashed.

Behind Yellow Guy are Red Guy, Sktechbook, Tony the Talking Clock and, more importantly, his own dad, the handler behind it all.

He is also asked to worship Malcolm, the king of love - the same way MK slaves are asked to worship strange entities.
Yellow Guy is also asked to worship Malcolm, the “King of Love” … and to feed him gravel.

Like the rest of the series, this episode comments on how media forces specific ideas upon the viewers. The same way Yellow Guy is asked to worship Malcolm and to feed him gravel in order to find love, the masses are asked to worship stupid things and spend money to feel happy and loved. On a deeper level, the episode also depicts the actual mind control programming of Yellow Guy, the star of the TV show for kids.

Episode 4

Episode 4 begins with the three friends playing a board game. Once again, there are several subtle details that confirm the presence of programming.

The friends are apparently inside Yellow Guy's home - there's a picture of him and his father Roy (the handler).

The same square "eyes" are found on their board game, combined with the all-important checkerboard pattern. They are still being programmed.

Behind Yellow Guy is the head of Malcolm the Love King proving that he integrated this part in his programming. Also, according to the milk carton, the three friends are still missing - even though they're inside Yellow Guy's house.

When a card from their game asks “What’s the biggest thing in the world”, the friends look at the globe. Studying the globe is indeed a great and wholesome way to learn about the real world. However, a slightly dumb computer interrupts their research.

The "computerly guy" keeps making grammatical errors.
The computer calls himself a “computerly guy” and keeps making grammatical errors.

Once again, we find here a comment about mass media. This TV show aimed for kids misleads them out of true information (learning from the globe) and lures them into learning pointless, big-brother-friendly information.

The computer starts asking all kinds of personal questions to the friends - a comment on how mass media attempts to normalize mass surveillance by presenting it as normal to the kids.
The computer starts asking all kinds of personal questions to the friends. This children’s TV show is attempting to normalize mass surveillance by presenting it to the viewers as something innocent and harmless.

When Red Guy tells the computer to “shut up” and taps on it, the friends are transported to the “digital world”. In MK terms, they are taken to dissociation. Once again, this symbolically represents them being programmed by their handlers.

In the digital world, the friends follow a checkerboard pattern floor, implying they are following the programming laid out by the handler. A bunch of googly eyes and a pyramid appear in the background, basic occult elite imagery.

The show is not about teaching children about computers anymore: It is a confusing ordeal where the computer acts as an agent of the MK handler.

The computer symbolically represents what MK handlers program into their slaves: Removing them from their core persona through trauma and dissociation.

As they get deeper into the digital world, the puppets find themselves inside a hypnotic whirlwind of sounds and images. Red Guy, the most critical guy in the group, gets sick of it and attempts to break out from programming.

Red Guy finds himself in the "real world" (or a somewhat distorted version of it). He's an actor in a children's TV show that uses motion capture.

Red Guy is not supposed to be aware of this reality though – his head literally explodes. MK slaves cannot break from programming and, if they do, they are often programmed to “auto-destroy”.

It´s becoming more and more obvious that Satan is indeed the ruler of this sick and insane world.

It’s only the ruler if you give it permission to.

We, the people, are the real rulers of this planet. We are the Creators in this illusory reality. The devil, or according to the Gnostic’s, the demiurge and his Archon workers, do not possess the ability to create, they have no imagination and is why they hate humanity (because we can create) and use us to create an ugly world in their image. We have all the power my brothers and sisters, we are the ones that MUST, put a stop to this madness. We must continue to spread truth and help manifest the great awakening globally. The Awakening is certainly progressing, but humanity has to continue spreading the light of truth, and soon the archons and their human/hybrid minions will a distant memory.

Exactly, WE have the power to change things, not some invisible force people put their thought power into.

Saying that “Satan” is in charge is just the same as the elite making us believe there is a higher power controlling us when really WE are the minds that can get us out.

The “bogey man” syndrome is one of their most effective methods of control. Bad guy after bad guy is presented to us so they can protect us from it. This is an internal drama of our own making however, and “they” are projections of our inner inability to accept everything is one. Ego, it is assumed, is full of itself, when it more than likely secretly hates itself for its fall from the all (or God) hence it’s overcompensating self promotion.

I agree. Don’t consent, don’t submit to NWO. We have God Almighty’s power. Think of it and use it. The Aryans and Satan dont have imagination. This is true. Without people they are nothing. Dont be used.

Maybe you should be alarmed and do something?
“The Aryans and Satan dont have imagination.” More of the nonsense. What basis do you have for putting out such a statement of ‘fact’? Absolutely none, I’m sure. That’s where the line is drawn between the discerning conspiracy theorist actually interested in truth and people just cooking up whatever reality they wish to believe in. Have you met Satan and person and determined he has ‘no imagination’? Absolutely ridiculous. Perhaps spend more time doing something constructive about these things than cooking up these crazy imaginary narratives. There are children being abused by p********s and probably all sorts of Monarch mind control abuse going on. NWO might decide to launch WW3 tomorrow yet here you are talking about Archons and Aryans and Unicorns and Elves as if it’s all some kind of entertainment for you. Posting this kind of drivel is only going to scare people off who might just have… Read more »

Their job is to show us how to create our own reality by delivering the consequences of not. The devil makes work for idle minds as well as hands. The archons, when viewed without moral assumptions are catalysts.

Maybe you should be alarmed and do something?
“Their job is to show us how to create our own reality by delivering the consequences of not. The devil makes work for idle minds as well as hands. The archons, when viewed without moral assumptions are catalysts.” I assume this ‘talk’ comes from the socalled interview with the socalled ‘Hidden Hand’ who claimed to be an Illuminati insider revealing their plans. I was amazed to see one conspiracy theorist after another nods their heads to what he said without any kind of discernment. You’re doing the exact same thing. It could perfectly well just be some fairy tale he sold everyone – yet, here you are, repeating what was said as if it was ‘fact’. A Satanic organisation… and you just accept everything ‘he’ said (‘he’ could be anyone, I could have made up all that ‘highly credible’ bullsh1t he spit out in 5 mins). Whether you believe in… Read more »

Ephesians 6:12

He runs everything but only because God lets him. If people don’t believe in God they no longer fear God, therefore they get to Heaven or Hell based purely on their own morality, not because they’re only behaving because they think they’ll be punished after. Personally, I like that idea. Of course, in reality it creates hell on Earth but give it 20 years and it’ll be copacetic.

Youre right. Belief in a supreme being isn’t a pre requisite for being a good person. Sometimes it helps, but often it can make demons out of people who believe “God” is on their side… Welcome to down vote city neo.

Well, as the story goes (and it’s the same story around the world and throughout various cultures but the characters just have different names), the one who has dominion over the physical world is God’s favorite fallen angel, Lucifer. The human based mind control is but a cheap attempt to imitate and control as Lucifer controls this realm. In India the being with dominion is Kal and the Gnostics called it the Demiurge. Whatever it’s called, it’s creation is “maya” or illusion. The mindfuckers worship it and want to be it.

If one were to make that assumption, then he or she would not have the sense to “combat” the elite, who can clearly undermine and bring down those who ACTUALLY know what is occurring. Believe what you will, but having that mindset can be just as bad as not knowing.

2 Corinthians 4:4

Honesty, Bible quotes prove nothing at all.

And your proof that quoting the Bible proves nothing?

Well, qualifying it with their own take on what they’re quoting would certainly make them sound less like a parrot.

From zero hedge: Obama Picks Cass Sunstein, America’s Joseph Goebbels, to Serve on the NSA Oversight Panel:

While at Harvard in 2008, Sunstein co-authored a working paper that suggests government agents or their allies “cognitively infiltrate” conspiracy theorist groups by joining ”chat rooms, online social networks or even real-space groups” and influencing the conversation.
The paper also suggests that the government “formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech.” That sounds an awful lot like the 50 Cent Party of online commentators who are paid per comment by the Chinese communist party to sway public opinion.

The secrets of the occult aren’t secret. There are things out there called books, and some people (strange as it may seem) like to occupy their time with something called research. That being said, the secrets may be out there, but the accurate use and perception of said secrets determines whether they are truly hidden or not.
