We all have seen one. And if you don't think you did, then listen up.
Well, you don't have to, but…
So, there you were as a little kid in the '60s or '70s, watching The Brady Bunch. And just after the credits, you see this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5fVJwc8hiE
Or how about this after Hogan's Heroes?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjEvphlGA3s
Or how about this after The Partridge Family: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6j8EhsJrIA
There was even a 9-minute mockumentary about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlmy47a6uiQ
How about this after The Andy Griffith Show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10LDTLjEPDM
If you're still not convinced, take a look on this "warped" version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEVCSF5WW9c
Then there's the VID Mask of Doom. Just look it up. I'm too chicken to give you a link.
Same with Oz Film Company.
As for me, I'm not scared of some of the more famous "scary" logos (V of Doom, S From Hell, Paramount Closet Killer, Universal Television, Revue, MTE, PBS 1971, FHE 1981, USA Home Video, to name a few), but some that really get me are the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and VID logos. With MGM, I used to be really scared of it, but now I'm so-so about it. The video's okay without the sound for me now.
But Oz Film Company is the worst, IMO. That creepy, lifeless face really gets me, especially the colour variants. But just what is going on in that background?
Was there a logo that made you keep yourself up at night? Sounds ridiculous, but it's actually true. You know, once, I woke up at 3 in the morning and I thought I saw VID masks everywhere around my room. It kept me up for more than 2 hours.
So, yeah, don't be embarrassed to tell me your experiences with "scary" logos.
