The FurReal Friends “My Bouncin’ Kitty” toy is cute enough at first glance. It says “Meow!” in the top-right corner on the box—how adorable! But spend more than a few seconds with the toy, as YouTube user Niels Beekes did, and you’ll discover that this unassuming plaything contains the trapped spirit of an evil kitten—and it wants out.

Is it just us, or does Beekes start weeping with fear right at the end?
