Take This Lollipop…NOT
With Halloween one week away, you may feel like indulging your sweet tooth. No matter how sweet Halloween candy may look, the Facebook App Take This Lollipop will remind you that taking candy from a stranger can be unhealthy and horrifying! Released in 2011, www.takethislollipop.com is a short interactive film that pulls photos and information from your Facebook in a creatively creepy way.
Spawning YouTube reaction videos, Facebook outrage, and general buzz across all social media platforms, director Jason Zada has plans to release a sequel to the short film before this Halloween.
Has the Internet learned its lesson, or will everyone jump at the chance to take another lick of the lolli this fall?
