Poppy is the glorified robot-doll that is taking over the world by storm in a very sinister fashion.
If you’ve been on YouTube in the past few weeks, you may have seen big YouTube celebrities like Shane Dawson, PewDiePie, or The Fine Bros talk about the rising Internet sensation, Poppy. I know what you might be thinking, “Oh gosh, another talentless YouTube celebrity that’s gaining success for no reason.” But that is exactly what Poppy is not.
On the surface, Poppy is a pop star. She actually has a handful of songs that are catchy and has music videos to go with her original music, even releasing her own album last year. She has attended music festivals and radio shows, even participating in interviews. At these public events, the girl portraying Poppy addresses herself in the third person and answers in a robotic and scripted way that leaves people shocked and confused. This is only the beginning of the peculiarity that she is.
That Poppy, or simply just Poppy, is from Nashville, but that is essentially all people know of her origins. She used to do music covers and was a seemingly normal girl. The oddity started when she released her first YouTube video. Her video director, Titanic Sinclair, also has a distorted past. His ex-girlfriend, a girl allegedly named Mars Argo, made a morbid video involving her throwing up blood and then disappearing from the Internet entirely. While the correlation between Mars and Poppy is still up for debate, it’s clear that something strange is behind Sinclair’s creation.
Poppy’s YouTube channel is her main topic of controversy. She has multiple videos that involve her acting like an unnatural disciplined doll. You’ll find videos of her talking to a mannequin, talking to plants, and even reading the whole Bible at one point. The progression of her videos go from innocent little girl to a controlled and scared automation. This evolution shows the once virtuous little girl “selling out” and becoming a product of the entertainment industry. It’s clear that the whole Poppy image is a satirical take on what it means to be a pop star in today’s society.
To some, that’s where the Poppy image ends. Sinclair makes his statement and it is represented through Poppy. But to some, there’s yet a deeper meaning. Throughout Poppy’s videos and music, there are huge signs that point to Illuminati involvement. In her music video Lowlife, she dances with a devil character in front of pyramids and faceless bodies. This has started a theory that Poppy is actually trying to be a pop star and using her unusual satire to get big, a kind of contraction to her character.
Overall, the story of Poppy is eerie and twisted and it gets more confusing every time she posts a new video. If you want to follow her creepy, yet interesting videos, go to her YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/thatPoppyTV) and follow her on social media. It’s what she would want you to do.
