    Thanks John and crew, that was absolutely creepy. I grew up on a beach located on a bay emptying into the Gulf of Mexico. We got our share of flotsam and jetsam washing up on the shore, particularly after storms. One day our dog brought up this particularly creepy rubbery headless doll ("Stretch Armstrong" as some may remember from being children of the 70s or 80s). This awful thing became our dog's favorite chew toy. We tried throwing it back into the bay, into a salt marsh, and into the woods, but this thing kept popping up again with our dog proudly parading this hideous thing around. I think that my dad finally cut it up into small bits and took it to the trash where he worked. Everyone please dispose of your old dolls in a safe and eco-friendly way. Please consider an exorcism as well. Cheers!

    When the guy said that they might have washed up from Mexico, I immediately thought of the Island of the Dead Dolls. It was featured on a fairly early episode of Buzzfeed Unsolved (the one where they go to the Winchester Mansion, the Island of the Dead Dolls, and then the Sally House). The island is packed with dolls, and I imagine some of them might have been picked up by a hurricane.

      The thing is, that island is in a lake in Mexico City, far away from the cost of the gulf of Mexico... And we do not get hurricanes up in here!! So if they do come from that island, they certainly have travelled a long, long way...

      fouoii gyhh Going with the 80s horror theme, the curse on the dolls animates them and drives them to kill people.
      and oddly, no, Chucky isn't the first inspiration for that. The first thing I thought of was a trilogy of horror whose name I forget. In it there is one where a woman gets a small (smaller than 12 in) ?african? masked figure with a thin chain on it and the directions to NEVER REMOVE THE CHAIN. Yet the chain falls off and the figure becomes animated and terrorizes the woman trying to kill her.
      It was after that flashback that I remembered Chucky.

      That sounds like a shipping container fell off a ship and its contents are continuing to be swept ashore years later. At first I thought that was the explanation of the dolls, too, but the fact they are all different and some clearly vandalized makes this seem more like a deliberate act.

    I am terrified of dolls, their little corporeals without spirits, and it freaks me out. Growing up my family knew this so they would hide curly red-headed and freckled doll heads around the house so that I would find them. One night on the way to my sister's concert I threw it out the moving car and on the way home my family stopped and searched the woods until they found it. The last time I drove home it was sitting in a bird's nest and an old garage window that you could see when you pulled into the driveway.

    MrSIMURDIERA 년 전 +50

    I know the doll from 5:38, it’s actually a piggy bank that resembles the mascot of a bank here in Colombia called “Banco Caja Social”, judging from the design it’s probably from the 90’s but they are still giving them away, crazy it would end up being all the way up there.

    Given how many shipping containers get lost in transit each year on sea, I'd not be surprised if part of these came from those, as they can open when they fall. But it is definitely environmental pollution to have these floating in the water, so really happy to hear they offered the donation to clean it up. Tracking down where they come from would be critical to stop the pollution (both environmental and visual)....on the other hand, it is pretty amazing how strong nature is to claim its rightful place back with all the barnacles etc living in those dolls.

    A man in my 3D class took a naked baby doll and gave it knife wings, among other alterations for a "found object" sculpture. Another girl made a demon altar out of a baby doll. Somehow, these are still creepier

    The creepiest thing is that some of these dolls are old and colored by someone, they’re different shapes and sizes and there is even an adult doll, so it doesn’t seems that they come from a sinking container… it’s more plausible the floating Victorian house!

    I just watched the mental health segment and wanted to share my experiences. I worked in a mental health crisis facility a few years ago where kids would be admitted and have an average stay from 5 to 7 days. The insurance companies dictated the treatment stay. If a child had suicidal thoughts or was at risk and was not discharged by a doctor, the insurance company could still refuse to cover they stay and force the doctor to discharge. The doctor would have to do a review with the insurance company to explain why he was not going to discharge. sometimes the insurance would listen and other times they wouldn't. I was a social worker and would have to call the parents to tell them about discharge. If the parent was not wanting to take the child out, they would have to pay 800 dollars a day. I would tell the parent to come and take the child and once you walk out the front door and feel the child is not safe, the parent should turn right around and readmit. That would be one way around. But it was sad to see insurance companies refuse to cover days when the child clearly was not ready. And then trying to make a discharge plan was difficult because it depended on the family's insurance and what the insurance would cover. Also, meds were a concern if insurance refused to cover them as well.

      60 Minutes is a news talk/interview program in the States (because it's an hour long). It's famous for having a logo on screen of a ticking stopwatch.
      If you're curious, I'm sure if you search for "60 minutes ticking" or something you'll get an idea :)

    • chris west

      @Igor Souza I think "b roll" got its name back when there was an actual roll of film involved. It's a collection of environmental shots you use to transition between scenes and establish a contextual sense of place and time.
      For example, when the local news does a story about a new policy at a high school, the main footage is the interviews with students and staff and experts, and the b roll is footage of kids walking to class, exterior shots of the school buildings, maybe a shot a flag pole or a statue or something.

    It may be possible that these beach dolls may have traveled from the Island of Dead Dolls in Mexico City. It's in a lake but there are canals and tributaries that go into the gulf of Mexico then end up on the beaches of Texas. Zach Bagans and the Ghost Adventures crew even did an episode there.

    I can't wait for the HBO B-movie horror special in which John Oliver leads a coalition of people to defeat the evil dolls filled with invertebrates from the ocean as they make landfall on the Texas coast. The climax where they confront the 4000 year old girl with a devil in her heart atop a gulf oil rig will be so hype.

    Reminds me of a beach in France that consistently had Garfield (yes, the orange cat) telephones wash up on its shores for a period of about 40 years. Researchers ended up finding a shipping container that fell into the ocean, and it turns out they were slowly leaking out of it and onto the shores. Could be something similar here?

      @Linda C they're all of ROUGHLY the same *type* of product: toy doll. Some are big, some are small, some are more detailed, some are less, but they're ALL conceivably the product from a single doll factory; maybe some doll manufacturer in mexico - maybe even one that went out of business decades ago - was liquidating its stock and shipping it to a US wholesaler, when the container ship carrying this doll cargo (along with so many other shipments) hit a gulf storm and had several containers washed overboard, and only now, years and years later, the doll container is rusting apart and its cargo is being released into the waters of the Gulf and wildlife are interacting with it (barnacles & other parasitic sea life making temporary 'homes' out of these plastic objects), and the currents are gradually washing the spillage up onto this Texas beach.
      An oceanographer might, with enough time, be able to study the currents and show us the path these cursed dolls took in their return to us from their watery prison, and somewhere along that track, the lost and crumbling shipping container lies on the floor of the Gulf...

    • Joachim Schoder

      Imagine for a second to be there if they find the container, raise it from the ocean floor and open it. There is definitely a horror film in there

    • Fredrik Dunge

    I'd like to see John Oliver react to La Isla de las Muñecas, also known as the Island of the Dolls. It's an entire archipelago island absolutely filled with decaying creepy dolls. Literally millions of them. In the trees, the beaches, the rivers and streams, on fences and in rocks. Vines grow through some, and wasp nests are built into others. Spiders have incorporated some into webs.
    Might even be where these dolls come from.

    The first thing that popped into my head was Isla de las Munecas (Island of the Dead Dolls), which is an entire island of dolls like this, but it's kind of smack in the middle of Mexico's tail.
