Agamemnon 01

Agamemnon Counterpart is a video in which a strange cartoon plays while screaming plays in the background. After being uploaded online, it became the subject of a creepypasta and various lore, and grew into a popular subject for reaction videos and remixes.

The short video was created by artists Michael Ronson and Jason Kovac for Destination Imagination 2001, an art showcase competition. While it is unknown how the video did at the competition, the video would gain more recognition when it was uploaded to YouTube by user fividtelefuzzerator on June 13th, 2006 (shown below). The video starts off with a low quality VHS warning screen. After that, text appears saying:

"In the year 2571, a videocassette was found in a pile of rubble on the ruins of a certain blue planet. What you are about to witness are not the contents of the cassette. This is an entirely different recording."

Next up, footage of cartoon characters walking up to the screen with text stating “Let’s Make A New Friend” appears. Then, audio of screaming begins to play. This screaming accompanies shots of the characters as they are distorted with various visual effects. The video ends soon after as the music begins to degrade. The screaming is from the French film A Cry From Within, while the music is from the American film The Human Tornado. The video has gained over 1.5 million views.
