Spender Man is watching you too….
We’ve seen a few people wondering where the idea came from for Spender Man. It all revolves around the urban myth of a mysterious being named “Slender Man” who was created in the Something Awful forums a few years ago after a few pictures surfaced of a mysterious tall and suited figure appearing in various pictures throughout time. Over the years the series grew so popular that it spawned ARGs (Alternate Reality Games), video games, and various spoofs and parodies. You can watch YouTube channel’s like Marble Hornets or TribeTwelve to watch the horror story unfold even today.
In the mythos Slender Man will usually make contact with his victims through proxies or with some form of stress and paranoia inducing events. In our case we had him take over the twitter accounts of not only Misfit, but of the Misfits accounts themselevs.
Slender Man, like Obama, has been constantly spotted where he’s not wanted, disaster usually follows in his wake, causes episodes of terror, and is generally a negative force in this world. It seemed like a natural way to go for our Halloween video. Thus, Spender Man was born.
Love, Spender Man
