An interactive video featuring a A sweaty, wild-eyed man in a stained undershirt hunches over his computer in a shadowy basement is first made its way through social media in 2011.

The video uses the developer tool Facebook Connect and features actor Bill Oberst Jr. (whose credits range from “The Secret Life of Bees” to the inexplicably Oscarless “Nude Nuns With Big Guns”) as the aforementioned grungy nutjob.

Just type takethislollipop.com in your browser and you will need to allow access to your Facebook account.

Don’t worry: The application claims it uses your data only once, then deletes it. But the creepy results just might make you think twice about who else gets access to your online information.

Enjoy!
