TV's "Teletubbies" have always had a sort of stoner appeal to them, but this new video might be more of a bad trip.

The clip shows the characters from the beloved British TV show in black and white, and set to the funereal tune of "Atmosphere" by Joy Division.

The mashup was put together by Christopher G. Brown, a Boston-based musician and member of Vary Lumar, after an eerie black-and-white photo of the Teletubbies went viral last week, and some remarked online that it looked like something out of the Joy Division video.

Here's the original video for "Atmosphere," directed by Anton Corbijn, for comparison:
