Once upon a time, there lived an insomniac by the name of Chad. He had been living with this affliction for years, but it had become especially debilitating recently. Every night, he would lay in bed, watching the clock tick by, unable to sleep.
One night, after hours of tossing and turning, Chad decided to try something new for a change. He grabbed the remote and flipped on the TV to a channel he had never seen before. The only thing playing was a show called “The Tales from the Crypt”. It was a show full of eerie stories of horror and suspense.
Chad watched with fascination as the show unfolded. As he watched, he began to feel drowsy. He donned his pajamas and dozed off in front of the TV.
Chad awoke to a loud noise coming from his TV. He quickly realized that he was no longer watching “The Tales from the Crypt”, but instead what appeared to be a live-action horror movie. On the screen were two men in suits, one of whom was holding a large television remote. The other man was pointing it at Chad’s own TV and pressing buttons.
Chad was terrified by what was happening. He tried to turn off the TV, but it wouldn’t turn off no matter what he did. He eventually managed to unplug the TV and ran out of his room in fear.
When Chad returned, he found that the two men had gone. On the screen was a message that read: “You have been chosen to take part in our experiment. You will be unable to sleep until you have finished watching all of our shows.”
Chad was horrified. He knew that he would never be able to sleep again unless he complied with the demands of the mysterious men. For weeks, Chad stayed up watching their shows, unable to break away from them or risk losing what little sleep he had left.
Eventually, the shows stopped and Chad was allowed to go back to his normal life. But even now, years later, he still suffers from insomnia, haunted by the memories of those sleepless nights spent watching “The Tales from the Crypt”.
