Something has gone terribly wrong in the Hundred Acre Wood….
We all have stressful days where we just want to put on a facial mask, kick back, and watch some TV while pampering our skin. If you’re like some Japanese people, you’ll want your facial mask for that special “me time” to have a cute character on it, because nothing says luxurious skin care like anthropomorphic animals!
Which is exactly what Japanese Twitter user @beeeeeerrrrrry was thinking when she brought home a Winnie the Pooh face pack. Just slap it on, relax, and enjoy some Pooh bear-approved, honey-smooth skin, right?
But once she put it on, things suddenly took a turn for the scarier. And we’re talking Heffalump and Woozle-level scary here.
▼ Hmm, so far so cute. It can’t be that different when she puts it on–
▼ CHRISTOPHER ROBIN WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO POOH BEAR?!
Oh no… it’s talking!
▼ “MUTANT POOH EATS HONEY AND HUMAN FACES!”
Yikes! What happened to our lovable, honey-loving friend? This mask is clearly some sort of demonic distortion of what was once Winnie the Pooh. The poor bear must have accidentally slipped and fallen into Hell, and boy did it take a toll on his complexion.
Japanese Twitter users had similar reactions to seeing Pooh’s dark side:
“It looks like a B-movie horror monster!”
“Well I guess I know what I’ll be seeing in my nightmares tonight…”
“AH! Don’t look it in the eye!”
“Why did I make the mistake of reading this while I was drinking tea? Now my monitor is soaked!”
And for those out there who think that this is just something that happens to face masks in general, we present evidence to the contrary: check out the kabuki, Attack on Titan, or KISS face packs we’ve looked at before.
None of them end up nearly as scary as the warped Pooh, meaning you may want to steer clear of these possessed masks the next time you’re shopping for exfoliation supplies.
