You know what we have tried just about everything else and if you can’t get folks to engage then why not put Hypnotoad to work, can’t be any worse that some of what has shown up in apps. He’s an interesting character as the sound that comes along here is a recording of a turbine engine played backwards. Sounds reasonable to me as everyone has tried just about everything else. Yes there’s an IPhone and Android app for him.
ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD
Video is interesting and I didn’t stare at it long enough to give it the full test…but anyway here’s to the glut of behavior modification apps that we keep getting marketed with as the answers to all our problems and the fix to all their profits, but Hypnotoad scrapes and sells no data:)
Hypnotoad is a large toad-like creature that has large oscillating multicolored eyes and emits a droning hum. His eyes glow all the time. The toad apparently uses these as a power of hypnotism on surrounding people and animals. Hypnotoad hypnotizes sheep into a pen at a pet contest and then hypnotizes the judges and the audience into awarding it first prize (see clip below). He is also known to hypnotize crew workers into committing suicide when his show is interrupted.
Hypnotoad also has its own television show called Everybody Loves Hypnotoad. It consists of a stationary camera filming the Hypnotoad and its noise continuously. Despite the odd premise behind the show, it ran successfully for over three seasons, possibly because it hypnotizes the audience.
