This summer, the final episode of Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared will be released. The series of web shorts, created by Becky Sloan and Joe Pelling, has been viewed over 30 million times, spawned a countless fan theories, inspired a fashion line and generally amused and confused anyone who watched it. Throughout five episodes we have watched the protagonists, known only as Duck, Red Guy and Yellow Guy, learn about time, the internet, healthy eating, love and creativity. Ahead of the final episode we took an opportunity to interview the cast of the show and shoot them in a style worthy of their global superstar status. After wracking our brains for an angle, we found that the questions that needed answering had already been asked, but not answered, in the script of each episode. To sate your curiosity, and probably further confuse things, we asked these questions that have been posed previously by a computer, a lamb chop, a hallucination and the stars themselves.
Where do you live?
Yellow Guy: I live in my house!
Duck: I live in my house.
Red Guy: I just don’t know anymore.
What do you like to eat?
Yellow Guy: Spaghetti!
Red Guy: Well, I’m trying out an all plain foods diet. At the moment its causing a few disturbing side effects but I think just takes a while to get adjusted.
Duck: Pineapple fritters, waffles, miniature pancakes, a chicken picnic, bread lengths and whipped milk.
What is your favourite colour?
Yellow Guy: No!
Red Guy: Medium brown.
Duck: Once in a while.
