I never realized until now how awesomely creepy and vaguely sinister all the Thomas the Tank Engine characters are. Wow. Especially the fat little man.

EVERYTHING made for kids in the UK is creepy and vaguely sinister.

This just makes the Smiths about three thousand times more gay.

Oh dammit, HoopX. You are like the last one to realize it.

Also: can't sleep trains will eat me.

Uh... I apologize for not spending more time watching Thomas the Tank Engine?

The Price is Right was my stoner college kid midday viewing habit.

The facial designs on this show were always worrisome.

I don't know why, but I loved this damn video. I never watched Thomas and I never really liked The Smiths, but this works.

Oh, definitely. That's why I posted it. It's a really weird fucking juxtaposition that is strangely compelling (especially the snowy train tracks and the guitar bits).

Awsome, was this the show that had ringo star in it?

He played the conductor in the American version's live-action segments (which were new for America). Later on he was replaced by George Carlin.

John Lydon would have been the natural progression.

Fun fact:

The Isle of Sodor gets its name from the Anglican Diocese of Sodor and Man. That diocese covers the Isle of Man. The guy who wrote the books (W.V. Awdry) thought it was weird that there was no Isle of Sodor in the diocese, so he made it up for his children's books.

In the books, I like how Sir Topham Hatt is called the Fat Controller, and the guy who runs the narrow gauge railway is called the Skinny Controller. None of that stuff makes it through to the TV show - it's way more un-PC.

They had George Carlin playing Mr. Conductor.

Not sure you could get more un-PC.

This works really well as far as fan-made music videos goes. It probably doesn't hurt that I am a fan of The Smiths.
kiint
my 2yr old watches this show all the time, and therefore so do I.

this is great (plus as ghoul said, it doesnt hurt that Im a smiths fan), but the best has to be the STH montage for "ask me, ask me, ask me" @ 1:19

I never knew these two wires could be crossed in a broken mind.

I'm just here for The Smiths but damn if that wasn't rather sinister.

Five because I love this song. Another five because I never knew Thomas the Tank Engine involved so many crashes and explosions.

What's that I hear? Why it sounds like the rape-train!
