Geez, Qanon gets weirder by the day, doesn’t it?

That video feels weirdly '80s for something that must have been made in the late '90s at the earliest…

@Shuck Even with the Boards Of Canada vibe, it is creepy.

There is no creepy side to Furbies, really. Matter of fact, they’re all creepy. (To paraphrase Pink Floyd, c1973)

The video is nice and moody and all, but hasn’t the Furbys sorta outlived their status as a dramatic shorthand for “weird, yet gauche” by now?

I mean, we have people who want to marry Alexa out there today. The Elf on a Shelf comes with a built in webcam. A plushy Tamagochi from 1990s kinda pales by comparison.

Bonus points for using a LinnDrum, which now alone costs likely more than 3 times what he spent for everything else, Furbies included.
