Meanwhile, the original creator of Chucky was left out entirely.
Judging by the recent trailer, the new killer Chucky is a mixture of 80s pastiche and Black Mirror-technology.
The trailer opens with a bright montage of the "Kaslan Corp" factory, as a promotional voiceover says, "At Kaslan, happiness is about more than entertainment. It's about being known, understood, loved. Introducing your new best friend..." Images shift to a darkly lit home where a young mother (Aubrey Plaza) gives her son (newcomer Gabriel Bateman) a new doll — which seems to scan his face with an ominous red beam. As Harry Nilsson's upbeat "Best Friend" plays throughout the rest of the trailer, a second montage features body bags, flashing police lights, and Plaza's bloodied face as her son screams in terror.

When Orion Pictures announced they had greenlit a reboot of the original "Child's Play," Dan Mancini's feelings were hurt. As the series creator, writer of all seven pre-existing films, and director of the last three, he was actually insulted. "Obviously my feelings were hurt," Mancini admitted. "You know, I had just done two movies…forgive me if I sound defensive, [they] were both at 83 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Even though they didn't get theatrical releases, they were well regarded. And I did create the character and nurture the franchise for three fucking decades."

There's an entire genre of YouTube videos that consists of nothing but news bloopers, and they're equal parts hilarious and panic-inducing.
"Right after the break, we're going to interview Erik Weihenmayer, who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, but he's gay—I mean, he's gay, excuse me, he's blind."
Back in the early 2000's a young news anchor in New Mexico had a slip of the tongue on live TV that has enterred the annals of news blooper history.

Cynthia Izaguirre had just gotten done reporting on a separate story discussing activism for gay rights, and was setting up a segment with the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, and her thoughts got twisted on the way to her mouth, resulting in a 14-second clip that would live on in infamy.
