Satanic Furby Parody Ad Only Slightly Weirder Than Other Japanese Ads Fine line between disturbing and horrifying

Sure, Japanese ads are crazy. But they rarely sink (or is that rise?) to the level of satanic-cult-forcing-Furbies-to-cannibalize-themselves crazy. Sadly, the "Creepy Japanese Furby Commercial" below isn't real. It's a parody by YouTube editing wizard Mike Diva. But it's still worth a watch—and worth a browse of the YouTube comments, where many Japanophiles seem so excited about the soundtrack from animated siren Hatsune Miku that they don't seem to notice (or maybe care) when the ad segues into an Eli Roth film.
