Wherever people gather, there will be discussions about something strange and unexplained, and those conversations will grow into urban legends. The internet is a rich field for those kinds of mysteries and legends. You and I know that just because something isn’t explained, that doesn’t mean there’s something nefarious going on. But then again, you never know. For example:
A mysterious video first posted in the late-2000s, no-one can agree on the origins of ‘I Feel Fantastic.’ What they can agree on is that it’s unbelievably creepy. Featuring a blank-faced female android stood in front of a dark window singing “I feel fantastic” in a robotic monotone, it’s like an image ripped from David Lynch’s nightmares.
The video’s backstory is no less weird. Reddit claims it first appeared under the title ‘I didn’t make this.’ When users contacted the original poster, he would only tell them he’d got hold of it from a company specializing in weird/rare videotapes, and this was #17 in their collection. They, too, had no idea where it came from. All they would note is that it appeared to have been filmed on a set, using fake windows – a thought that makes it seem even creepier.
Others have conjectured it shows the aftermath of a murder. At one point, the video meaninglessly cuts to a zoom-in on a patch of grass. The story goes the android represents a woman who was killed and buried there, and the video is the murderer’s sick way of turning it into a joke. Even if you don’t buy this more-outlandish theory, there’s no doubt that robotic voice and empty stare will send shivers up your spine.
There’s probably nothing to it. However, you can see the video and read about other internet mysteries -and one from television, at Urban Ghosts. Warning: some videos and images may be disturbing to the sensitive.
