There’s a certain billboard I go past every day that gives me the freaks. Maybe you’ve seen it — it goes a little something like this:
Every time I see it, I think it’s a picture of three huge Patsy Kensits staring robotically out at me. Every time some part of my unconscious is like, “That’s chilling/genius” (in the same way that a corpse is disgusting/fascinating) until I catch up with myself and remember it’s just a really weird ad.
It’s interesting, the appeal of the uncanny. Go too far in the wrong direction and you have pure horror.
