‘Don't Hug Me I'm Scared’ is back for a terrifying penultimate instalment

Guy Parsons

Unbelievably, it's been over four years since Becky Sloan and Joe Pelling unleashed their sinister short film 'Don't Hug Me I'm Scared’ on the internet, teaching us all that green is most definitely NOT a creative colour. Since then (and thanks to last year's Kickstarter, which raised over £100,000) three further episodes of the kids-TV-gone-deeply-wrong have been produced, racking up some 60 million views, and on Wednesday the fifth and penultimate episode hit YouTube.

Contains: felt characters, ‘facts’ about healthy eating, entrails and the customary descent into nightmarish hallucinations. Enjoy!
