JC: The Human Centipede has really entered the public consciousness. Stephen Colbert referenced it on The Emmy Awards, American Comedian Daniel Tosh did a 20 breakdown of it for his TV show, there is a porn parody called The Human Sexipede, people have gotten tattoos, there was a video game online, you can buy human centipede cat toys on Etsy. Why do you think that it’s resonated with people so much?

TS: I think the sick and crazy basic idea- sitting on your hands and knees, sewn to an ass in front of you- that’s something that somehow scares people and repulses people. But at the same time, everybody wants to speak about it. It’s really fascinating that something that sick spread so well.
