‘Eldritch Tucker Carson’ Mirrors Lovecraftian Xenophobia in Modern Fox News

"SWANSON: Eldritch Tucker Carlson | Aamon Animations" Image: screencap.

Animator Aamon Hawk doesn’t shy away from macabre animations that feature big names in politics like Joe Biden, Bernie Sander, and Donald Trump. They’ve even created work around professional trolls like Elon Musk, Joe Rogan, Charlie Kirk, Jordan Peterson, and Alex Jones. It was only a matter of time before Hawk featured someone in the mainstream news circuit, and this is it with Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson of the Swanson Dynasty, a.k.a. the most-watched cable news show, Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News.

In Hawk’s April 8, 2022 upload featuring Tucker Carlson’s show, the caption reads, “Your normal American family sits down to watch normal American news.” The scene starts with a white couple in suburbia preparing to eat their Swanson Hungry Man microwave dinners. Trying to be polite to the grandfather, already enchanted by Tucker Carlson, they watch his show and start to transform into monsters—first by their actions of thinking immigrants are literally going to run up to their house and attack them, and then physically, their bodies transform.
