A new urban legend about a cursed number has
spread on the Internet. Momo has been with us for some weeks, but
it has already become one of the creepy virals of the year. Today, we are talking about her, but before
that we wanna remind you that you can subscribe to our channel if you havent done so yet,
so we are encouraged to keep making videos! This curious Whatsapp game started in Spanish
speaking countries, but it is already terrifying users all around the world. Maybe you cant wait to add this number to
your contacts and play. But we wannna advice you not to. It can be dangerous, but not from a supernatural
point of view – when contacting this unknown number you might be exposed to personal data
theft, blackmailing and cyber bullying. So, first of all, DONT DO IT. Enjoy this viral from far away, thank you! After this warning, let’s talk about the
Momo phenomenon. It all started some weeks ago, with a fake
challenge that started as a Whatsapp chain message. A Facebook user shared on his wall a picture
of a weird figure, the face of a woman with swollen eyes, scary smile and greasy black
hair. She had two horrifying black claws. In the description, there was a telephone
number with a japanese area code, and a message in japanese that means “People call me L”. Suposedly, when you add the contact to Whatsapp,
you can see the disturbing picture on her profile and the nickname Momo, hence her name. It didnt take long for screen shots to become
viral, as well as videos of people talking about Momo and challenging her. Theoretically, she can answer back in different
languages and start a conversation. Memes (miims) and videos of youtubers trying
to contact her led to the rapid expansion of Momo’s fame. Among all the stories people tell about what
they wrote to Momo, there are some where, suposedly, this terrifying user had information
about their personal lives. They also say Momo sent them scary pictures
and insults. The challenge of “talking to Momo” has
several versions – talking to her at 3am, the cursed hour, or not letting Momo type
more than twice in a row. When you see Momo’s image for the first
time, you rapidly get scared. She is like a quite realistic spectrum, but
dooont wory, she is not real. Momo’s image comes from a sculpture displayed
at the Vanilla Gallery, a museum in the district of Ginza, in Tokio. Rhis place is known for having exhibitions
of alternative art and, often, of a horrific tone. The sculpture was created by the Japanese
special effects company Link Factory, and in 2016 it was part of an exhibition about
ghosts and spectrums. This humanoid piece of art of the bird-woman
called the attention of many visitors at the gallery, and if you search different social
networks you can find pictures of people taking pictures with the sculpture. . Since Momo’s appearance, there has been
lots of phone numbers pretending to be this disturbing creature, so behind this whole
creepy prank there can be really bad intentions, apart from simply scaring us. Be very careful when dealing with these threats
and never access any link you are sent. We have to enjoy memes, but remember you cant
believe everything you find on the internet.
