FunkyTown is a shock video that is first known to have been uploaded to on September 26, 2016 by a user named PinkFloyd who titled the video "Shocking: Rival Gang Member Flayed Tortured and Beheaded". The video was filmed by either a Mexican street gang or a Mexican drug cartel.


FunkyTown is a 2 minutes and 50 seconds long video of an unknown man being savagely tortured in a white-tiled, mostly empty room, while music plays in the background, including the song Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns n' Roses. The man is seen lying on the ground with his arms and legs tied up with what appears to be an extension cord or wire. This man has his hands cut off, his face skinned off (resulting in a bloody skull), and his eyes gouged out while he lies 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 sickle and a box-cutter, and shove a pole down his mouth. The video does not capture the final moments when they end up completely killing the man.[1]


Many viewers consider FunkyTown to be one of the worst gore videos online. 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, though there is no proof of any such video existing. The accents heard in the video point to it originating in the Michoacán area.

On February 14, 2021, a video titled "Hi" was uploaded to 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 murderers who made FunkyTown.[2]

On July 16, 2023, the full FunkyTown video was uploaded to YouTube by user Mr Bist, albeit in low quality. The video remained on the site for seven months and gained 54,000 views before it was taken down by YouTube on March 15, 2024.


  • The reason why the video is named "FunkyTown" is because the song with the same name by Lipps Inc. can be heard playing in the background ambiance at the end.
  • FunkyTown was included in a shock mixtape called MDPOPE 3.
  • Scroll Down also featured a low-quality GIF version of the video.
