The creepiest video you will see all day

They look like real babies, but they're state-of-the-art designer dolls. International Reborn Doll community, you win this round.

Topics: Broadsheet, Love and Sex,

You know a YouTube video is a winner when its title screams, “Not a Fake Baby! These Are Real Life Like Reborn Dolls!” Um, clarity please? This stunningly disturbing montage doesn’t feature real babies, so what are they? They are “reborns” — a name that seems plucked directly from some Philip K. Dick dystopia — designer baby dolls made to look as lifelike as possible.

More about the reborn-baby community can be learned in this video. And I quote the narration: “Lydia is a reborn, a state-of-the-art designer doll. For hundreds of British women, she’s the perfect kind of baby.” (Heeeeelp. It buuuuurns.)

In the meantime, enjoy this video. And turn the volume up. Waaaay, way up.
