FunkyTown is a shock video first uploaded to an unknown website (presumably Kaotic.com) sometime around 2016-2017. The video was filmed by either a Mexican street gang or Mexican drug cartel.
FunkyTown is a 2 minutes and 50 seconds long video of an unknown man being savagely tortured, while techno-style music and the song "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns n' Roses is heard playing. The man is seen lying on the ground with his arms and legs tied up with what appears to be an extension cord. This man has his hands chopped off, his face skinned and cut off, and his eyes gouged out while he lays in a pool of blood and screams and gurgles in pain. The man was also drugged beforehand to keep him alive longer while the murderers torture him.
The man, who barely resembles a person, manages to get his arms untied and tries to reach for his face. Keep in mind that the man has no face, no eyes, and no hands.
The murderers slit the man's throat with a knife and box cutter, but don't fully behead him. The video does not capture the final moments when they end up completely killing the man.
Many internet users and people familiar with the topic of gore consider FunkyTown to be one of the worst gore videos of all time. The mysterious yet jarring nature of the video has sent some viewers looking for answers to questions such as where this video was filmed and who the man being tortured was. It is unknown who any of the people in the video are, including the man who is being tortured. Some commenters have claimed to have watched an extended version of FunkyTown on the deep web, even though there is no proof of any such video actually existing.
On February 14, 2021, a video titled "Hi" was uploaded to goretube.net by user UzeeeT. This clip is yet another drug cartel gore video, but has an eerily similar setting to FunkyTown. In the video, some cartel members decapitate a man and play soccer with his head in a familiar-looking, white-tiled, mostly empty room. It's possible that the people behind FunkyTown are also behind this video. It's also possible that there are more murder videos out there that take place in that same dreaded room, filmed by the same murderers who made FunkyTown.
- The reason why the video is named "FunkyTown" is because the song FunkyTown by Lipps Inc. can be heard in the background ambiance at the end.
- FunkyTown was included in a shock mixtape called MDPOPE 3.
