The Today Show Cast As The Kids From Peanuts Is The Stuff Of Nightmares
In 2015, the cast of The Today Show decided to celebrate Halloween by dressing up as the characters from everyone's favorite horror franchise, Peanuts. What's so scary about a bunch of melancholic children and their dog, you ask? Well, let's start with Al Roker as Charlie Brown:
We guess ears that didn't look like they came out of a book of medical oddities were a step too far.
Not creeped out enough? Here's Meredith Vieira as either Pig-Pen or a young Jason Voorhees:
In this gritty reboot, Pig-Pen is the ghost of a kid who died in a fire.
Then we have Hoda Kotb as Snoopy and Kathie Lee Gifford as Thing That Should Not Be:
If that mouth could produce intelligible speech, it would say "KILL ME."
Meanwhile, Matt Lauer as Lucy is indistinguishable from a serial killer:
Even more than usual, we mean.
These atrocities are supposedly the product of the Saturday Night Live makeup lab, but they look more like something you'd see in a David Cronenberg movie. Even the child cast of The Peanuts Movie was quick to admit how creepy the whole thing was. We're just glad this aired while most kids were in school.
Super Mario Characters Looked Straight-Up Demonic At The Ice Capades
The success of the Super Mario Bros. video games has led to many a side hustle for everyone's favorite Italian stereotypes, the least logical one being their appearance at the 1989 Ice Capades. Since Mario and Luigi are ostensibly human, you might think they simply slapped some mustaches and overalls on a couple of professional skaters and called it a day. But no. There's nothing human about the look they went with:
ABC"It's a-me, the Antichrist!"
The silvery, glazed-over looks in the brothers' eyes never fail to make them look like they're possessed. Even Princess Peach, who's supposed to be worthy of rescue, came across like she was in need of an exorcist.
ABCWait, no nose? That's two Toads on top of each other, isn't it?
