The Creepy Pencil

(Live Leak link)

You know what they say about something too good to be true, and taking candy from strangers, etc etc. -via Unique Daily

Update: Boing Boing posted this and commenters provided more information.

It was made at the Savannah College of the Arts, and was written and directed by Christian Simmons. Heres a high-quality version of the film. Here's a behind-the-scenes video.

Oh man. Now, I'm the whole rest of my day is going to have a creeped out edge to it. Bah!

The music was perfect for that, btw.

I will take real pleasure in feeding pencils into the electric pencil sharpener for the next few days.

the pencil was really eldritch, it was the fixed grin that put me in mind of the Lady In The Radiator from Eraser head...that and the fact that the pencil really did have an eraser for a head.

That girl is seriously going to break an awful lot of hearts when she's grown.

Anyone else get that weird feeling of the pencil being like the Bunny from Donny Darko? With the creepy soul eating smile? Jeez. The music definitely lent itself to making this uber-creepy.

And if there are any Sponge Bob Squarepants fans out there I'm sure you'll remember the episode where he finds a pencil that could his drawings come to life. Me thinks that these were inspirations for this creepy video. Brrr!

Now I can't sit here at work without thinking that the bundle of pencils in a cup near me are staring...and smiling. O_o

Ali S., I was literally JUST about to comment saying about Frank the bunny from Donnie Darko! I know completely what you mean! The evil, sadistical smile, the terrifying music.

For those of you who've never seen Frank...

There's a picture there. it was the freakiest one I could find. I think the scariest bit is when Donnie looks in the mirror and Frank appears. That bit was SPPOOOOOOOOKEEEEEE!

So the point is what ??? If she hadn't drawn the cake and kite she wouldn't have gotten sucked up in the black hole lollipop -is that what the moral is?

ripper, look how fast she rejects everything that she gets so easily. Firstly, she barely eats any of the cake, though she wanted it. Then, she lets the kite fly away, as it would have gotten too boring to play with. The number three is always magical. So as she hadn't learned anything by her first two wishes, the third one is final. It shows how our selfishness and greed sucks us in and we lose everything.

Sorry for ant mistakes I might have made. I'm a foreign reader from Lithuania (near the Baltic sea). I am also having my English exam tomorrow ( I am a 12th former), so this is a bit of a practice for me too. Hope you got my point. :)

I thought it was kind of creepy that someone said "That girl is seriously going to break an awful lot of hearts when she’s grown."

But then again, she could probably pass as an Urban Outfitters model in the video.

Are you one of these people who thinks that all comments about kids are sexual?

It says more about what is going on in your head than anything I said.

She is a very good looking kid who'll no doubt break a few boys hearts, what is there that is creepy about that?

It's people like you who have paniced parents and Grand parents about displaying affection, to the point where they can't comfort their own grand kids when they graze a knee.

If anyone is "creepy" in this mate it's fucking well you.

I am absolutey seething with anger at you, you are the wedge that divides people, that has people second guessing their first and totally innocent thoughts.

You are the thought police all you need do is infer improprioty and that's enough.

You are so wrong it make sme want to vomit.

It's morons like yo who fire bomb paediatricians offices.

Sorry Pol x. That was just my first reaction. Didn't mean to hit a nerve so hard or induce vomiting. I'm not the thought police, I'm not a moron and I'm sure you're not either so please accept my apology.

What is it about internet that causes people to get so angry?
I think it's somehow connected to road rage... there must be something in the human brain that allows anger to go unchecked when we are 'protected' from intimate retribution... like behind the armor of a car, the internet, and perhaps even a crowd of others (so perhaps mob violence can be included in this theory?)

I find it much harder to be angry / 'yell at' people in person, even if I'm justified in my anger. Hmmm

(And, pol x, i'm not saything thats the case with you. This whole situation just made me think about these things.)

Oh and "Just a Guy", I have long since implemeneted the policy of never saying on line what I would not say to the persons face.

Yes I was very angry, but that was because I was very angry, not due to the anonymity of the internet.

Anger causes me such distress that it is something i try to avoid, some times to my own detriment. So if I sounded off it was not done lightly.

I appreciate your point that you are not refering to me per se, but I think I should make the point.

All the best

Pol x
