poetic and unsettling
When I was in college there was an ice cream truck almost exactly like this that would drive around campus, circling the same block for an hour or more at a time with no one daring to approach them.
This is like the beginning of a creepy numbers station or something. After it drives by, is there a van that does nothing but play a series of seemingly random numbers in monotone?
Well he did something right in covering up the "Chickenhawk Express" logo that the previous owners put on the back.
Gamelan ice cream truck.

If the vendor isn't dressed like an old west undertaker, then they're wasting a perfect excuse to do so.
I usually hate it when people behind the camera insist on talking, but this guy's comments were entirely appropriate.

Come get your ice cream! And moistness! All the ice cream smells faintly of glue and cardboard! The ice cream man only looks straight at you if he likes you! Ice cream!
christ, it's not even a truck, it's a conversion van D:
We used to have an ice cream truck that would play -Fur Elise- on its bell.
What the Hell, man? If emo had been around then I would have called it the Sad Humor Man.
Didn't Freddy drive this in one of the Elm Streets.
"That song's gonna haunt my fucking dreams forever."
You and me both, man.
You and me both.
Minus one star for not actually being the world's creepiest.
The creepiest ice cream truck didn't even have a song playing. Just a child's voice repeating the phrase, "Ice cream is so sweet and tasty." It drove through my aunt's neighbourbood about four years ago while the family was there for dinner. I didn't like it.
"...and when they ran out to get an ice cream... the truck was nowhere to be seen.
That night, everyone died.."
so what's wrong with a van with tinted windows playing music to lure the kids?
One of the more effective Silent Hill missions.
I need a buck twenty for a Hellraiser Push Pop.

All aboard the abduction van!
Evil ice cream truck would probably be a good enough gimmick to get college kids. Just paint it black with skulls and fires on it and drive around college campuses and you've got a license to print money.
I'll have the Concupiscent Curdsicle, please.
Oh my God. 5 stars for the video, +1 star for the description, and another star for the "Next stop: undisclosed location" tag.
Damn this 5 star system! It's too restrictive!
It worked before star inflation made every halfway decent video 4 stars minimum sometime in late '08
"Everything is possible...in a nice van."
Stars for everyone.
Who wants ice cream?
I finally worked out why this sounded so familiar. A recording of this tune was used at the end of Neutral Milk Hotel's "Where You'll Find Me Now." So here's the not-creepy (still a bit creepy) version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QHEIuRvuO0
-1 star for needless commentary from cameraman & his wife/girlfriend/whatever.
