Have you seen this, Adam? #1 Creepy Crawlies

The first in series of ‘Have you seen this, Adam?’ in which users suggest clips from the internet to test Adam’s emotional responses to through the use of Sensum.

Welcome, Bienvenue, Willkommen, Aloha and Fàilte to the first instalment of ‘Have You Seen This, Adam?’ I’m Adam, and I’ll be recording and sharing my emotional response to the videos you think will get my emotions running using the cutting-edge Sensum product.

Thanks (or should that be no thanks!) for all of your suggestions so far, as to what videos on the interweb I should watch.

For the first week I was kindly sent a non-cryptic video titled ‘creepycrawlies’. That just screams ambient sounds from the rainforest doesn’t it? SPOILER ALERT: If you want to watch the video yourself before reading the description, be my guest!

Being the first week of running this, I was a little hesitant as to what would greet me on-screen. Low and behold, the video proved to be a 42-second film of some spiders being harassed by a large instrument, with them coming towards me.

It is safe to say, I did not like this one bit.

Let’s see if the visualisation represents my thoughts and feelings.

The initial point of where the visualisation begins to grow rapidly is when I figure out what I am watching - when an instrument of pain comes towards me revealing these creatures of death under their safe blanket, which didn’t need to be moved!

As I was watching this, I didn’t know what would be revealed; if it was going to be a snake trying to eat them, or a large bang from a sneakily-inserted sound file.
Therefore, just after the highest point of the graph, we can see a big dip due to the realisation of what was happening. That doesn’t mean it was any more pleasant.

With another small peak shortly after, when they do some crazy dancing, trying to intimidate me.

Which then leads to a massive rise in the graph when our friend ‘the hand’ again decides to give them a poke and the spiders end up going rampant on screen. So would I if a big stupid hand woke me up!

So there you have it folks. I was officially scared and beaten at 11.00am this morning. I thank you for the offering of this glorious piece of film.
For your enjoyment, here is a picture of me looking either scared or excited it’s over. Maybe a combination of both. I’ll let you decide.
