Before Slenderman, there was Creepy Watson. Three years ago we posted a video of this Weeping Angel in Dr. Watson form. He’s an NPC in the awful video game Sherlock Holmes Nemesis (2007). He follows you around but you never see or hear his sudden movements, and he’ll suddenly appear right behind you, even if he was across the room a moment ago. Plus he has a blank stare and creepy smile.

Yesterday, Focus Home Interactive and Frogwares released the video below to promote the upcoming Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments. In the spirit of April Fool’s Day, they played up Watson’s creepiness, even though this version of Watson isn’t in the new game. Listen, your life could depend on this. Don’t blink. Don’t even blink. Blink and you’re death. He is fast, faster that you could believe. Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away, and don’t blink!

Good luck.

And here’s the original nightmare fuel:
