There's A Babadook Dildo Now Because Of Course

With no real basis behind its sudden rainbow placement, dark closet-dweller The Babadook still remains as the reigning LGBT icon we never knew we wanted.

After discovering that Netflix mistakenly placed the film in its LGBT section, it seems gays across the world took that as inspiration for a valiant stream of memes, tweets, and social media posts upon the commencement of this year's Pride Month.

A swarm of Babadook-inspired images, mixed with other parts of popular gay pop culture like RuPual's Drag Race and Looking, along with some serious reading into the plot, made people believe The Babadook was this stylized figure of homosexuality.

And now, The Babadook is making its way into more sexual territory — specifically sex toy territory.

But first, a brief explanation for those unfamiliar with the 2014 Australian psychological horror flick, The Babadook.

You see, the titular creature only exists purely out of belief.

After uncovering the demented childish pop-up book The Babadook is featured in, a mother and son begin to read through the poems, get creeped the f*ck out, and are unable to shake the long-clawed, top-hatted ghoul from their thoughts.

It's essentially like what his re-emergence upon the LGBT community has done to the world. The guy is EVERYWHERE.

As one of the film's rhymes states, "If it's in a word, or it's in a book, you can't get rid of The Babadook."

Well, it seems The Babadook is branching out. Since expanding from books, he's gone on to brand himself with shirts, pins, candles... and large black dildos.

Because it's 2017 and literally anything can happen (Sashay away, President Trump), an LA-based special FX artist decided to try his luck raising money to create hundreds of — you guessed it — BabaDongs.

"Behold the BabaDong, a high quality silicone dildo," it says in the details on his Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign page. "The BabaDong has a sturdy base, so you can strap it on and take it anywhere! Don't worry if it gets dirty on your adventures (which it most likely will...) because the BabaDong is dishwasher safe!"

The BabaDong is listed as being 7.5 inches long (from base to tip), with an intimidating girth of 5.75 inches around.

But don't get your hopes up just yet! If the minimum goal is not met on this campaign, BabaDongs will not go into production.

While its current $88 raised may sound some alarms about it ever reaching its $15,000 goal, I will repeat that it's 2017, and everything is actually the worst. I expect BabaDongs in the hands of patrons across the globe before Labor Day.

You won't be able to get rid of The Babadook when he's shoved up your butt.
