Considering The Human Centipede is remembered as one of the most controversial and gross-out horror movies of all time, you might not initially think food and Tom Six’s 2009 vom-fest would go well together. However, Human Centipede gummies are officially a thing.
Proving nothing’s off the menu with the world of horror and weird crossovers, one man has invented Human Centipede gummies. Yes, they’re attached mouth to butt. Even though Halloween is a forgotten spectre to most of us, that doesn’t mean you can’t slip these into your kid’s stockings this Christmas and wait for the weird questions to flood in.
Matt Benedetto is known as the brilliant mind behind Unnecessary Inventions and only recently grabbed headlines with his Crocs gloves. His other products include eyebrow eyebrows, LookBak Spectacles to see who’s behind you, and LEGO socks for when you step on those tiny bricks.
Now though, the Gummy Human Centipedes are combining two of our favourite loves (horror and food). The description from October explains: “Gummy Human Centipedes™️ Happy Halloween, It’s the spookiest month of the year!
“To get ready for the big day, we created the most delicate gummies to give out to Trick-or-Treaters this year! Chomp on this miniature Human Centipede (which happens to be our favorite movie) and feel the sugary rush! Full bags for everyone!”
I remember when Haribo released adorable sour Bear Buddies joined by their hands. Now, Benedetto is taking it to a whole new level. I’m not even afraid to say it, these literally look good enough to eat.
For anyone who doesn’t know what The Human Centipede is about, it basically sees doomed test subjects sewn together into one horrific creature and usually dying in the most disgusting of ways.
If you weren’t terrified by Dieter Laser’s unhinged performance as Dr. Josef Heite, things went completely off-piste in 2011’s The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) and 2015’s The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence).
While we wait for the inevitable Hollywood reboot, the idea of munching a bag of gummy Human Centipedes is enough to make your mouth water.
