Turkish toys

One unexpected feature of Istanbul: nightmarish Christmas toys. Sorry for the poor video quality, but it was shot using my digital camera in less-than-ideal lighting conditions.

I am not sure which are the creepiest: the Satanic looking robotic musical Santas, the little boys with assault rifles and grenades, or the crawling shooting soldier. The last is almost certainly the least disturbing, because it is a consistent motif. The middle option is probably the most, because of how the cheerful expression on the faces of the dolls jars with their attire and accouterments.

Hey Milan.

There is a new video up on Google Video and on the Blog Site. It is “Red Light” and I am very proud of it.

Hope you are doing well.

Mica,

I already linked your video in a previous post. Scroll down a little.

While one Santa is plenty creepy, its all the Santas swaying like that creating the “from hell” effect, remix the youtube clip with the right music and its perfect.
