About

Are You Going to Sleep? is an exploitable webcomic made by Hanna Hillam in which a brain asks a sleeping person "are you going to sleep?" to which they reply "Yes I am. Now Shut Up." The brain then says something that causes the person to stay awake. The webcomic which was introduced in June 2017 became an exploitable in 2018.

Origin

On June 12th, 2017, Hannah Hillam posted a comic for Buzzfeed[1] depicting a conversation between herself and her brain at night. While attempting to go to sleep, her brain says "Think about all the ways you could get murdered!" causing the main character to jolt awake (shown below).


YES I Am. ARE YOU GOING To SLEEP? NOW SHUT UP BUT THINK OF ALL THE WAYS YOU couLD GET MURDERED HANNAH HILLAM /BUZ2FEED

Spread

Over the following several years, the comic became an exploitable, where the brain's statement would be changed to something anxiety-inducing, a la the One Fear exploitable. For example, on March 25th, 2018, Redditor Xevitz posted a variation to r/programmerhumor[4] which accumulated over 39,200 points (95% upvoted) in a year (shown below, left). Another example was included in an Imgur meme dump posted June 25th, 2018 by user MissJKS94[2] (shown below, right).
