Paddington, the upcoming film that stars lovable childhood favorite Paddington Bear, released a photo on Tuesday showing the sweet bear standing in front of Buckingham Palace. Well, the Internet did not seem to think Paddington looked cute.

Most people thought he looked hella creepy.

And thus, #CreepyPaddington was born on Twitter and Tumblr. It’s a mashup of your childhood and horror movies (like The Shining up there) that will destroy all your fond memories of the book series forever.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
