Slipknot: Viral Videos And A Terrifying New Theme Park Venture
Never failing to disappoint us, the Internet has unleashed its newest viral phenomenon. Taking a break from making unexpected John Cena videos, someone decided to mash-up live footage of Slipknot with Ricky Martin’s ‘90s hit, “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and it’s about as excellent as you’d expect, and is undoubtedly one of the more intense renditions of the pop hit that you’re likely to witness. The clip, which was only uploaded to Facebook on August 28, has since been viewed over 720,000 times.
If the sight of Corey Taylor swivelling his hips to the Latin crooner isn’t enough to scare the absolute shit out of you, the band’s recent partnering with a US theme park surely will.
From October 2, the masked ones will turn the Sacramento Scream Park into their own house of horrors just in time for Halloween. It will feature three haunted houses – “Prepare For Hell”, “Clown’s Playhouse” and “Skin Ticket” – and has been described as “absolutely sickening” by Shawn “Clown” Crahan. When Clown is describing something as sickening, you know it’s bound to be inspire ultimate levels of terror. Guess the Slipknot crew must really be into superstitions, black cats and voodoo dolls.
