The most disturbing YouTube videos of all time

"What has been seen, cannot be unseen."


"What has been seen cannot be unseen."

Those who venture beyond this point would be wise to take the above words to heart. At risk to our own sanity, we have sifted through YouTube’s grimiest sewers to bring you the most disturbing videos of all time. From homemade zit-popping movies to openly satanic children’s TV shows, these are the worst videos that YouTube has to offer. All of the following clips are safe for work — but they might not be safe for your soul. Proceed with caution...

Dancing man wearing a horse mask cooks wild mushrooms.

There's something about this clip that crawls beneath the skin and festers inside your brain. The combination of the music, the horse head and the dancing defies all logic and/or reason. It is like a lunatic’s nightmare. Watch it more than once, and it's possible that you’ll become the man in the video.

Random YouTube comments:

"You ruined my life... I will never forget this. My mind is irreversibly damaged..."

"I will not sleep... NEVER!"

"I now question reality and life in general, not to mention my sexuality."

"My head exploded."

"MY EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"watching that was equivalent to suiciding."

"Don't watch this video; it uses brain-washing techniques that will make you go insane."

"I've seen some horrible stuff on the internet, but this video... it just disturbs me to the core. I'm going to lie down and cry a bit."

"This is what the inside of a serial killer's mind looks like."

"My god... When I close my eyes I still see the video in repeat..."

"Shut down YouTube. This is the end of the internet."

Banned Kinder Surprise advert

Seriously, what in the holy name of hell was Kinder thinking when it commissioned this monstrosity? “Maybe if we scare the living daylights out of kids, they’ll buy our eggs”? Drowning a barrel full of puppies would make a more suitable children’s commercial. If the mountain men from Deliverance were reborn as sentient blobs of cancer, they’d like something like this. Kill it with fire.

Random YouTube comments:

“This makes me want to kill myself.”

“Jesus. I'm going to need shock therapy to forget this...”

“That's one of the scariest things I have ever seen....”

“Oh crap why did I click on this?”


“Imagine going to sleep and that thing is under your bed.”

Ronald McDonald insanity

If you suffer from Coulrophobia, do not watch this video — especially from 1:59 onwards. You will almost certainly need to be institutionalised. (On the plus side, it will put you off Maccas for life.)

Random YouTube comments:

"I'm so scared. I feel like crying."

"WTF just happened."

"ARRRRGGGHHHH, WHAT THE F***ING HELL DID I JUST WATCH? I just lost my gender to this video."

"I just chewed off several of my fingers... it did nothing to lessen the pain of watching this."

"I can't even begin to deal with this."

"My soul just died."

"Every time I watch this I have to poop."

Chocolate bunny

Have you ever wanted to see a chocolate bunny slowly melting to the strains of Rosemary's Baby? You're sick. Get help now. (Bizarrely, this was originally produced for children's TV in the Netherlands.)

Random YouTube comments:

"This is... disturbing..."

"Gah! The heat lamp bunny looks like it just opened the ark of the covenant."

"It looks like the bunny skin is peeling off, ima have nightmares now."

"I cried inside."

"Damn, the guy who made this is a serial killer for god's 911!"

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
