Added DiffLines:

* The ending of the video of LFO's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3og0oFiDO3U "Freak"]], which is the [[NightmareFuel scariest]] part of an already very off video. After we see a group of little Asian girls dancing erratically to the song, another girl shows up and gets in a fight over a teddy bear that ends with that girl being thrown to the ground. The video ends with her sitting up, revealing a [[NightmareFace face]] that looks ''just'' CGI enough to perfectly encompass this trope, and [[SlasherSmile smiling directly at the camera]].

* The masked children in Pink Floyd's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YR5ApYxkU-U Another Brick in the Wall]]" who get grinded into pink goo. You almost feel relieved when they rip off the masks towards the end of the video.



* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tVV4h38wnMI This video]] from TheWiggles. Those puppets are incredibly unsettling, specially with those dead, crystalline eyes.

* The song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiKj0Z_Xnjc Papaoutai]] (a phonetic rendering of "Papa, où t'es?" or "Daddy, where are you?" in French) by Rwandan/Belgian singer Stromae is based on his real-life experience of having lost his father in the 1994 Rwandan genocide, [[LyricalDissonance although it is obscured by a catchy EDM beat]]. In the video, a young boy representing Stromae runs around his neighborhood looking for his father, but all he finds is a StepfordSmiler DemonicDummy. That's creepy enough, but it becomes even creepier when one realizes that the "dummy" is ''actually Stromae himself'' wearing makeup that makes him look eerily like an [[Series/DoctorWho Auton]]. Hard to tell whether this is more NightmareFuel or TearJerker.

** His music video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aJw4chksqM "Quand c'est?"]] has him dancing in a very creepy, almost inhuman manner, and seen only in silhouette. There are even a few very brief and easy-to-miss moments when he has an extra arm or leg, which only makes it that much creepier.

** ESPECIALLY "Music/BadRomance" and "Alejandro", in which she uses computer effects to enlarge and shrink her eyes. It's really unsettling to see her with [[http://i.crackedcdn.com/phpimages/article/2/4/9/36249.jpg these huge bug eyes]] in one video, and these squinted tiny ones in another.

* The fully-{{Inten|dedAudienceReaction}}tional look for the music video of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKk1u5RMTn4 Carnival of Rust]]" by Music/PoetsOfTheFall, revolving around a CircusOfFear carnival and its surreal, menacing denizens.

* Music/{{Mastodon}}'s instrumental "Pendulous Skin" is a strange musical example. A causal listener would assume that the song features Troy Sanders and Brent Hinds {{scatting}} over the song's instrumental backing. However, the "vocal" sounds are apparently entirely synthesized, and there are no vocals on the song. The resulting product sounds uncannily like vocals, but a listener will strain to understand what is being said - because, of course, nothing is being said.

"Bladecatcher", another instrumental with synthesized effects that sound like vocals, also gets this to some extent, although the "vocal" sounds are much stranger on this one, more resembling the work of a band like Music/MeltBanana.
