Being the main subject of a web page filled with random dreadful and frightening things, the main purpose of this site appears to be just to scare people, doing absolutely nothing more than this. To be bizarre just for the sake of being bizarre. This appears to be the main (and only) goal of Shaye Saint John’s web page.
His site is certainly beyond description. It has nothing valuable to offer you, except lots, and lots, and lots, and lots of weirdness. Purposeless videos, dark imagery, grotesque figures, and frightful stuff, all inserted in an especially scary platform, the Shaye Saint John website is the place for the most bizarre, infamous and obscurely random things you could possibly see in the world wide web.
And I couldn’t avoid asking myself who could possibly have created such a page? With what specific purpose in mind?
She also has her own YouTube account, full of equally disturbing videos, called Elastic Spastic Plastic Fantastic.
Well, to be fair, it certainly helps to say opinions go both ways, even in this case. Some people say Shaye Saint John’s videos are not disturbing at all, but it is in fact a great display of dark humor. A perfect sketch of bizarre and rebellious behavior, contrary to society’s modern standards, which is far more worried about beauty and appearance, than more profound and human personal values. But Shaye Saint John is more complex than that. And this is just one way of seeing things.
Personally, I find her videos so disturbing that I delete them from my YouTube history after seeing them. Shaye Saint John is one of those rare cases, which you have to see for yourself, in order to possibly believe.
Nonetheless, contrary to other obscure internet mysteries, the Shaye Saint John case was totally solved, and revealed to the public: a creation of tortured avant-garde artist Eric Fournier, he designed Shaye Saint John as a glamour model, who had her whole body damaged in a horrific accident. After recovering, Shaye Saint John reconstructed her damaged body parts, replacing them for mannequins. Horrible, isn’t it? But this is just fiction, the creative work of a forgotten artist, whose fair share of a decent place in the artistic world had gone for good.
Fournier died middle-aged, at 42 years old, in 2010, on unspecified circumstances. Some sources report it was consequence of alcohol-related issues.
Well, it doesn’t matter. Fournier has been deceased for more than six years now, but Shaye Saint John remains a popular presence on YouTube, and her site is still active, scaring people all over the world. At least, a creepy internet urban legend, that proved itself to be innocent, which by the way turned itself to be the greatest legacy of a crap artist.
