SB Thoughts:

:59 girl power

1:41 fuckin mattson

2:02 genuinely unique idea

2:32 and make me…what?? the anticipation is killing me.

2:42 oo a tall man

2:47 “don’t look at me, I’m just a mannequin.”

3:14 “okay, m’am we’ve got a lot of marshmallows in our mouth right now, but we’ll transfer you…maybe some other time…”

3:23 “…shake shake shake…she hung up on me! shake it like a Polaroid picture”

3:47 “man, I should have installed my doorknob the real way”

3:59 “now it’ll never door knob right”

4:20 the only things scary about this is that gross mustache and cheap vampire fang press ons

Lesson: Go out every night, so nobody with a gross ‘stache eats your skin.

SB Thoughts:

:23 oo doll, in the ads bar, lemme get yo’ numba.

:38 fuckin hipster art

:59 cursed by being half ostrich, half woman she now crashes computers

1:00 look into my not ostrich-y eyes and meet death

1:03 “My name is Metal in a Blender’, auditioning for the part of minute 1:03-1:05”

1:28 its a virus that poops in your bathroom and doesn’t have the decency to spray

2:11 predator here to make you a snack

3:07 hello, booty.

3:15 no one hangs dangle lights around their kitchen island.

3:48-3:51 I actually replayed this multiple times.

Is this just someone with a wig over their head that they CGI’d over to have teeth move to expand out sideways?

our brilliant design team [also, me] got to the bottom of this.



the answer was a conclusive, yes.

Lesson: Don’t click ads.

2:40 the only thing that can save me is the moonwalk now.


3:20 “I’m in my trusty bathroom stall. Do your worst monster scum!”

3:53 this old fashioned lock is actually very impressively crafted.

5:03 borscht, BORSCHT EVERYWHERE. And all over my nice clean floors.

Lesson: Bathroom stalls save you from nothing.

SB Thoughts:

:44 “dress hanging in the hallway, totally normal.”

1:42 “ah yes, time to have a beer labeled ‘BEER’ in my fridge I bottle myself.”

1:50 “this is what I do with beer, all the times I drink beer, which is – always.”

1:59 “everything in the living room seems to be in order, clock on the left wall ✓, tv on the right wall ✓, dead girl staring at me in the corner ✓”

2:16 “time to light my gas lamp, because it’s 1790 and I own that.”

2:21 “…wait a second, I OWN A FLASHLIGHT.”

2:34 “nope, it’s not just the switch that broke, we got a full-fledged blackout on our hands”


3:36 “ah, Cardboard Cut-Out of Charlie Chaplin I keep in the middle of my room, you gave me a fright.”

3:50 “okay, here we are, the record player I keep a Tiny Tim record in at all times.”

4:08 “A CAVEMAN?? I don’t even live with a caveman!”

4:30 “time to get in my car I totally brought car keys to start, despite having gotten directly out of bed”

4:36 “hello, woman I keep in my backseat at all times for company, let’s roll!”

4:41 “..wait a second?! I don’t have companionship!!”

4:49 “my battery, check engine light, and oil light all just came on?”


Lesson: If you can’t just be scary, be funny enough.
