Did you know that the first episode of Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared has had nearly 21 million views on YouTube so far? With that in mind, since launching three days ago, the third instalment of the cult series is marching quickly towards the million-hit mark. Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 3 is the much-anticipated follow-up to the very well-recieved previous epidoes which you can see here and here. This time, the characters are spending a day in the countryside, having a delicious raw chicken picnic when suddenly their day is dampened by a pesky butterfly landing in their basket of meat.
Yellow Boy (the yellow character) goes for a wander and is met by a curiously charming butterfly who proceeds to take him on a journey into the sky to explain to him the meaning of love and the importance of companionship. Let’s not forget that the Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared trilogy is held together by black humour like disgusting smelly glue, so naturally this story ends in horrible disaster. The sweet animals teaching Yellow Boy about love are actually grooming him to be part of their cult. You’ll have to watch it to find out what happens.
Thank you Becky and Joe for teaching us how to be creative, how to love one another, and how to look on the strange side of life. To us, you can do no wrong.
