One thing springs to mind upon watching the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s latest family video: WTF.
While a home flick of the couple and their cherubic children galavanting across Canada seems cute, what resulted is one minute and 25 seconds of pure, unadulterated creepiness.
For starters, there’s a super-bleak filter. And a shit-load of bubble blowing. And downright abuse of the slow-mo function. And if all that wasn’t enough, a soundtrack that better belongs in The Exorcist than a Kensington Palace production.
Have a look below, and if you don’t finish it feeling spooked then you’re made of steel, pal.
Not surprisingly, viewers were quick to call the video what it was: Weird-with-a-capital-W.
@KensingtonRoyal is it supposed to be in slow motion? And dark?

@KensingtonRoyal Whose idea was it to use creepy music and dark slow-mo pictures? Very weird :(
