I’m surprised by the number of people who are disappointed with the new DHMIS, but at the same time I’m not. Personally, I love the slightly different direction it took. It didn’t end in an all-out gore-fest like the other two, but it still managed to be creepy in its own way. Plus, I found it hilarious! Also, I don’t mind the singing character not being an inanimate object. Sure, the first two were, but since DHMIS emulates children’s shows to some extent it would be normal for a character like a butterfly to do the singing role.
Basically, I can totally understand why everyone expected an inanimate object to sing, even I did, but I don’t find the singing butterfly disappointing because he still fits.
And like I said before, the DHMIS videos don’t necessarily have to end with the traffic light trio being tortured or murdered. DHMIS 3 had the yellow puppet end in quite a bit of trouble, but not the others. In fact, the bird and the red guy were the perpetrators of the gore content in their parts. I think a lot of people expected it to follow the formula of DHMIS 2, in which the traffic light trio were harmed grotesquely by the singing character. In DHMIS 1, however, the trio themselves actually remained unharmed throughout the video and were the perpetrators of the gore and horror towards the end.
To sum up that last paragraph, it sort of went both ways, having the yellow guy as a victim and the red guy and bird as perpetrators in different scenes.
Really, we only had two videos to go by to predict what the third would be like, so I think maybe we shouldn’t be too shocked that it’s a little different.
