8 GIFs From Kill The K-Cup! (A Short Horror Film)

8 GIFs From Kill The K-Cup! (A Short Horror Film)

A group has posted a video over the weekend called, “Kill the K-Cup (A Short Horror Film).” Styled in Blair Witch/Cloverfield “found footage”, the short follows a group of office workers celebrating a birthday down to a city littered with used K-Cups splurging forth from the mouths and wings of a K-Cup invasion.

The film, which borrows a line from Brian W. Jones’ 2011 hashtag campaign of the same name, has the hallmarks of a well-produced Half-Life fan video. It was uploaded to YouTube on January 8th by the mysterious user “Kill the K-Cup”, whom the CBC reports as being the Halifax production team Egg Studios. It was produced in partnership with Social Bean Gourmet Coffee Co., whom we take it are not K-Cup fans.

It all starts at an office birthday party…

The film leaves us with one question on our lips…

Is this supposed to sell coffee, or make us all terrified…
