People are absolutely obsessed with the fear-inducing, nightmarish, animatronic killer, Freddy Fazbear. The popular video game villain and new-age horror icon has been brought to life as a real animatronic puppet.
Kotaku spotted a video from Dr.CreepyPasta where fuzzy camera footage shows Freddy in action. Check it out below.
A pretty funny quote from TGN reads....
“So um. Someone went and built a real-life Freddy. It moves. And talks. #NOPE”
The Kotaku article notes that the animatronic puppet can be programmed to say and do different things, similar to the Freddy Fazbear from the Five Nights at Freddy's games. The only difference is that the real Freddy won't unplug himself from the wall, take a stroll down the hallway and then murder you. Well, at least... I don't think the real-life Freddy Fazbear will do that.
In the comment section it's mentioned by Dr.CreepyPasta that there will be more videos of Freddy on the way, saying...
“Hello everyone just wanted to announce I am working on some big projects right now with freddy I am going to be uploading a video with Mr.Creepypasta's Hidden Lore video audio, One with the jumpsream, and toreador's march. Please be on the look out and more videos of him being more kid friendly also coming soon.?"
The video is basically going viral with tons of people reacting to what a real-life Freddy Fazbear would look and sound like. It's safe to say that based on the comments in the YouTube section people both adore and are terrified of the real-life Freddy.
At this stage in the game I'm just shocked there isn't a studio gunning for a Five Nights at Freddy's movie yet. I mean, what will take to get it made?
The games have skyrocketed in popularity and it's created a nice, bustling boom in the Let's Play YouTube culture. In fact, most of every big YouTuber out there with a steady cam, a decent mic and a moderately powerful PC has been streaming and recording videos of Five Nights at Freddy's to the masses.
Creator Scott Cawthon has been churning out new games in a relatively short time. Five Nights at Freddy's is now a trilogy of immense popularity after first coming onto the scene just last year.
The animatronic killer bear and his party pals have managed to win over a lot of gamers with the jump-scare mechanic ramped up to the nth degree. Funnily enough, senior citizens didn't get scared of Five Nights at Freddy's as some people may have thought. They were too badass for Freddy and his animatronic gang, I guess.
Anyway, the latest game in the series is Five Nights at Freddy's 3, and it adds some new gameplay elements and more difficulty to the gameplay of surviving the night as a security guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza Parlor. The animations and scenarios have also been slightly improved so you see the animatronic puppets walking around a bit more than in the past two games.
As for the real animatron... Dr.CreepyPasta has more planned for Freddy Fazbear. I'm almost willing to bet that we'll see a whole new subculture emerge around the terrifying bear now that a real-life version of him exists.
