Late to the party? That’s OK! Check out Marble Hornets now!
March 24, 2011
Want to know what teens are into right now? Ask them. A group of teen girls invited me to watch this strange Youtube video last week. The video is actually a series of videos called Marble Hornets.
Marble Hornets is named after a student film that was discarded after strange behavior from the film’s director. The director’s friend is the Youtube poster, and the clips are just random clips he has culled from the unmarked Marble Hornets footage.
What follows is a brilliant mashup of social media, short attention spans, and Blair Witch level creepiness. The series has been running for over a year, and there are about 40 clips, but once you get started you won’t want to stop. Give it a chance. At least to know what your teens are watching.
Here are a few clips to get you started.
