Eerie selfie video goes viral on YouTube
London: A freaky, spooky video has gone viral on YouTube and is so scary that chicken-hearted people shouldn’t watch it.
The video, called ‘Selfie from Hell’, has gone viral thanks to its inventiveness and all-out scares and has been seen by more than 1.6 million people so far, Mirror.co.uk reported.
The video was made by Erdal Ceylan and Meelah Adams, who posted it on their YouTube channel.
“I have produced a lot of short films, but it was time for me to start something new; a fresh and exciting project,” Meelah, a media production student, was quoted as saying.
Thanks to her devotion to a project entitled F*** You Zombie with Erdal, the German residents set out to make Selfie from Hell with their two-man crew.
“With ‘Selfie from Hell’ we wanted to create something creepy, atmospheric, a bit shocking, and above all entertaining. A video, that makes people want to share with others.
“The inspiration came from movies like Insidious and The Ring. The language is universal and there’s almost no text, so everybody around the world can understand it,” Meelah explained.
She said she was “highly fascinated” by viral videos.
“To analyse that phenomenon and then recreate it myself seemed like the perfect thesis for me. However, I didn’t simply want to produce any unrelated viral video, another cat adventure clip,a Meelah said.
