Couple’s pregnancy announcement video is a horror movie trailer, like newborns themselves

Pregnancy announcement videos can be nauseatingly cutesy, but one couple decided to do something different: They made their announcement video into a horror movie trailer.

Judy and Gavin Holt begin their announcement in typical home-movie style, smiling together outside their home. But soon enough, things turn sour. Ominous music begins to play in the background, and gradually, they begin to realize that they’re not alone in the house.

“I can feel it grow inside of me,” says Judy. “What’s happening to me?”

The dramatic references to Prego pasta sauce and a bun in the oven are what make this video art.
