Do you remember the children’s show Teletubbies? To refresh those who didn’t know, Teletubbies are alien-like babies with TV screen on their tummies namely Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po. It’s a British BBC children’s television series produced from 31 March 1997 to 16 February 2001 by Ragdoll Productions. It was created by Ragdoll’s creative director Anne Wood CBE and Andrew Davenport.

These cute colorful alien-like babies are kid’s favorite during the 90’s…but wait till you see them in black and white.

Last week a black and white photo of Teletubbies went viral on the internet that is somehow disturbing…

Some even said “This looks like a murdering cult,” or “The most metal album cover of 2015,” while  ‘Vanyaland’ a music magazine compared it to the eerie Joy Division video for their song ‘Atmosphere.’

The black and white video of Teletubbies was then published on YouTube. Stripping off the lively colors of the show is freaky enough but mashing it up with funereal tune of “Atmosphere” by Joy Division is absolutely horrifying! Watch below and see it for yourself!

 

Christopher G. Brown is the master mind behind this mashed up of Teletubbies, he’s Boston-based musician and member of Vary Lumar.  If you’re wondering what’s the video of Joy Division’s “Atmosphere” watch below.

Here’s a video of Teletubbies in full vibrant colors.

I’m not a fan of this children’s show, now I know why. It was really fortunate that this show was made in full color. Seeing it black and white is totally disturbing!
