It is somewhat traditional for me to include a version of one of my favourite pieces of music in the Countdown: the Carol of the Bells.
One of the (many) beauties of this tune is that there are simply so many different versions one can choose from, that even if I ran this series every year for the rest of my life, I would not have to use the same video twice.
This year’s offering, though, is a little different.
Yes, it’s (sort of) upbeat, but it’s also (probably) the creepiest video I’ve ever included in this series, drawing inspiration from the frankly terrifying Five Nights at Freddy’s computer game. If you don’t think you’re up to playing the creep-fest to find out just how terrifying it is, you can always watch other people playing it to get a taste instead.
Luckily, this video is only three minutes or so long – players of the game have to endure five “nights” of the nightmare-inducing visuals. That said, given the amount of FNaF content available on the interwebs, this might not be the last time we see the killer animatronics on the Countdown.
Ok, ok, if you want to cleanse your mind with something slightly more sedate, feel free to take a fresh look at the video I posted on Saturday of the London Catalan Choir performing the same song in a much more traditional way.
