About

Creepy Paddington is a photoshop meme based on a cut-out of the children's book character Paddington Bear as portrayed in the upcoming 2014 live-action film adaptation Paddington. Due to its uncannily realistic appearance achieved by CGI and animatronics, the anthropomorphic bear character has been met with mixed reactions from the fans online.

Origin

On June 10th, 2014, the first still from Paddington, a live action children's film based on the 1950s childrens book series created by Michael Bond, was released. The still features a lanky looking Paddington Bear smiling dressed in a coat and hat carrying a suitcase.



The same day Twitter user HWilksFilmGeek[2] introduced the hashtag #creepypaddington after Twitter user MrStevenLear[3] photoshopped the image of Paddington Bear into a scene from the horror film The Shining.

Spread

On June 11th, 2014, the single topic blog creepypaddington[4] was launched on Tumblr with a collection of photoshopped images showing Paddington in creepy scenes from horror films or ominous settings, including still shots from Cabin in the Woods, Paranormal Activity and Psycho.



Several sites featured round-ups of the photoshopped images the same day including Bustle[5], E! Online[6] and Slash Film.[7] In less than 48 hours the hashtag #creepypaddington[8] was tweeted out over 1,000 times.
