Ear Booker Productions

WARNING: This logo should not be watched by those who are prone to epilepsy. We mean it.

Nicknames: "The Flashing Words", "DAAAAH! DILALALILILWAWAWAWAWA!!!!", "The Bite Me Logo", "Black-and-White Police Siren on Steroids", "Ear Breaker", "Greyscale Flashing"

Logo
: On a rapidly flashing black and white background, we see the words "EAR BOOKER PRODUCTIONS" in FF Blur (a blobby version of Helvetica) zooming in, inverting its colors accompanying with the flashing background, and stopping in the center.

FX/SFX: The flashing and zooming.

Cheesy Factor: The text looks rather ugly and the flashing is more than enough to induce seizures.

Music/Sounds: A condensed version of the "Weird Al" Yankovic song "Bite Me". It consists of several synth shattering effects, a cacophony of loud guitars, and Weird Al screaming at the top of his lungs.

Music/Sounds Trivia: "Bite Me" originally appeared at the end of the CD version of Weird Al's album Off the Deep End as a hidden track, designed to scare listeners who forgot to turn the CD off or eject it and thus were unaware that the song was coming after 10 minutes of silence. It is a parody of the Nirvana song "Endless, Nameless", which appeared at the end of their landmark album Nevermind (with its album cover and hit single "Smells Like Teen Spirit" parodied as "Smells Like Nirvana" on the aforementioned Weird Al album) and similarly featured scary-sounding music.

Availability: Seen on The Weird Al Show--a show that, mind you, was (meddled by CBS executives to be) meant for children. It made a surprise reappearance on "Weird Al" Yankovic Live!: The Alpocalypse Tour.

Scare Factor: High to Nightmare. The screaming and the flashing can make you jump out of your seat, as well as inducing seizures. Knowing Weird Al, this was probably intentional. Some may even find it funny.
