Special Containment Procedures

SCP-2088-J-1 is unable to be contained, and currently is causing an AK-Class Memetic Madness scenario. All personnel are required to uninstall the videogame The Henry Stickmin Collection and terminate their Newgrounds account. Any personnel who becomes an SCP-2088-J-2 instance is considered expendable and is to be terminated.


SCP-2088-J-1 is the designation given to the Distraction Dance, an element in the 2015 videogame Fleeing the Complex developed by Marcus Bromander. It is unclear when the "dance" spread into reality as a hyper-aggressive meme, but current estimates suggest sometime in September 2020.

Every individual who views SCP-2088-J-1 will become an SCP-2088-J-2 instance. SCP-2088-J-2 instances will constantly search for uninfected humans. When finding an uninfected human, the instance will do the Distraction Dance. Viewing the non-animated Dance for 1 minute will result in becoming an SCP-2088-J-2 instance.
