The Cutest Kids in Costumes
The Cutest Kids in Costumes (A.K.A. Kutest Kids in Kostumes on the title screen) was a Liquid Generation sabotage screamer. As the name implies, it consists mostly of a slideshow of little children dressed up in costumes. It is very similar to another Sabotage prank called Cutest Puppies on the Web, which also uses an adorable slideshow as a setup for the screamer.
The screamer was taken down along with the entire Liquid Generation website.
The slideshow will begin after the user clicks 'Play', and automatically browse through the pictures, so there is no need to click to get to the next slide. After the 13th image, an edited picture of a man with sharp teeth, four eyes, black knuckles and small tentacle-like appendages on either side of his head, who is doing a thumbs-up gesture, will suddenly pop up and zoom in with a loud, high-pitched scream, and then briefly blink with all four eyes.
While most of the pictures in the slideshow are lighthearted and feature kids dressing up as animals, fictional characters or food items, the 13th picture, which appears right before the screamer, actually seems to show a child dressing up as Ali Shallal al-Qaisi, an Iraqi prisoner who had infamously been tortured at Abu Ghraib prison during the 2003 Iraq war, If one looks closer to the kid's head on the last part, you can tell it's clearly photoshopped because of the head shape on the costume.
