Tugboat Reaches New Level of Creepy in Final Installment of Long Wong's Residency Videos

Just in time for Halloween, Tugboat has managed to creep the internet like it has never been creeped before. (That's counting "Two Girls, One Cup," by the way.)

Just last week we told you about the series of creeptastic videos Tugboat released to promote their October residency at Long Wong's. But this video promoting their final show... this video... 

I need to go to Long Wong's. I don't know why. I feel like maybe they're using some pick up artist-style reverse psychology on me by calling me a "stupid ugly bitch," and it's totally working.  

Also featured in the night's lineup are noise rockers Weird Ladies, with their Arctic Monkeys-type vibe and moniker that lends itself to Tugboat misuse. Neba ("Learn to say it correctly") and Future Loves Past will be there. And of course, Flying Scorpions to, you know, "sting your genitals."

If you're looking to find the warped mind behind all of this, the videos were directed by someone named Benj Adventureface Braman. Blame him. Not us. 

Catch the final show Rocklobster, 28 at 8 p.m. at Long Wong's in Tempe.
