Okay, now I am officially creeped out

This starts pretty well and the concept of shadow dancing is cool. But then at around 00:48, the big hand turns one of the dancers into a "dog" and things get weird because the dog looks more like a creature with a strangely deformed calf head on a woman's body than a dog. From that moment on I had visions of The Island of Doctor Moreau as I watched it.


Once that image got into my little pea-brain it was all over. I just kept seeing a weirdly deformed and super creepy half-calf, low-fat vente latte dancing around. I just KNEW if the lights had come up and the dancers could be seen, they would look like this:


So, as I said, I am now officially creeped out.

If you are now too...I'm sorry.

If you're not...what is the matter with you?

  1. I think it looks like a baby goat head. Which is even weirder than a dog head.

    I don't think I'm creeped out, but then I put a lot more Irish Cream in my evening decaf latte than I intended. It is probably much more logical than it ought to be when you're slightly drunk.

    1. THAT'S IT! I hadn't had anything to drink when I watched it. Drinking definitely solves a LOT of problems.

      HAHAHA!

  2. A little creeped out. Mostly intrigued about how lights, props, people, arms etc. were positioned to get those effects and how much practice it takes to do it quickly a smoothly.

    1. Oh it was pretty cool, but I just couldn't help be amazed that they had actually settled on that weird head thing to be the central character. And I kept thinking, when they were in rehearsals, why didn't anyone else see that it just looked creepy and said, "Hey, we have GOT to fix that dog."

    1. I think that thing that is SO creepy because the head doesn't look anything like a dog, more like a calf/goat/lamb mess, and it sits on top of a girl WEARING A DRESS!

      Couldn't they have had her clothed in something more svelte, pants or something, so that when she was transformed, she looked less parahuman?

    2. I don't know if svelte would work. Seems like that would make it even more obvious that it's an animal head on a woman's body. That's going to be at least a little creepy regardless of the animal, though at least a dog isn't a food animal (here anyway).
