…The Human Pet was censored by YouTube?

The Human Pet, an interactive, fictional horror story featured previously on DYH, has been taken off of YouTube. Sam Deercot, the project’s director, has some pretty interesting things to say about the removal of his videos:

    Dear DidntYouHear,

    As you probably already know, YouTube recently shut down my channel “TheHumanPet” because they say it violated their terms of service. I believe this is because they found my latest video “Stalking” to be too graphic and disturbing. They did not, however, have a problem putting much more graphic ads for Saw III and Horrorfest above my videos, and even hosted graphic trailers and clips from these movies, all because they were paid to do so.

    I believe that censorship is a terrible thing. I also believe that it will most often fail.

    I have started a new channel called “TheHumanPet1”. I have also put my videos on The Human Pet blog at http://thehumanpet*blogspot*com/ (replace stars with periods). If this blog gets shut down, I will start The Human Pet website.

    My story will be told – complete and uncensored.

    Please re-subscribe to my new channel, and please pass this letter on to your friends as a message against censorship. If it could happen to me, it could happen to anyone. Thank you for your support.

    Sam Deercot
    Director of TheHumanPet1 channel

It looks like the series will continue on, and I only hope that Sam finds some way of completing his project, because humans do make good pets.

…Humans make good pets?

The Human Pet is an interactive, fictional horror story played out via YouTube. The following is a description of the project from the CodeMaster:

    My name is unimportant. I am an artist. I will never be caught, but what I have done here will live forever.

    For several days now I have been uploading videos of my human pet. His name is Eric. He is being held against his will. That is all you need to know about him for now.

    Eric would very much like to leave his prison cell and go home to his family, but that is not up to me. It is up to you. You will decide whether Eric gets to see his family again. You will decide whether Eric lives or dies.

    If the police or any other authorities are ever tipped about the location of this cell, Eric will die. If my identity is ever revealed or compromised, Eric will die.

    This is MY masterpiece, and you will play by MY rules.


    p.s. – art is a mystery to be unraveled

To give you a feel for what this game is all about, here is the first video:

It looks to be a pretty well thought out alternate reality game. You must discover and decipher clues hidden in the videos in order to save the captive human pet’s life. Hurry though, he looks pretty scared.
