This article isn't done. The majority of my sandbox articles are one-off concepts I never finish, so don't come here looking for anything that wasn't written in one night.

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is stored in a standard containment locker. Testing is suspended indefinitely by unanimous vote of the Ethics Committee.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a Fuji T-120 writable VHS cassette tape. The top face is labelled "COOKIEMAN [sic]" in black marker. Video quality degradation suggests an initial recording date in the mid-1990s. A full transcript of the tape is included in Addendum 01.

SCP-XXXX-A is [INFOHAZARD EXPUNGED].

The anomalous effects of SCP-XXXX initially manifest when a human subject capable of sight and hearing1 is exposed to a currently undetermined amount of information directly related to SCP-XXXX-A. The primary vector of this effect is SCP-XXXX, though testing has shown that audiovisual, verbal, and written exposure may bring about these effects.

Addendum 01: SCP-XXXX Transcript

The following is a complete, abridged transcript of SCP-XXXX's content.

[0:00:00] - The title card (shown above) is displayed; it reads "DANCE OF THE COOKIEMAN [sic]" and flickers several times.

[0:00:10] - The title card cuts to a still shot of a dark, unidentified room. The room's walls are undecorated drywall riddled with hundreds of small, circular holes, likely drilled or nailed. No audio is heard.

[0:00:42] - SCP-XXXX-A enters the frame from the left, only a few inches from the camera; the only parts of SCP-XXXX-A in frame are [INFOHAZARD EXPUNGED]. It waltzes into center frame in box step2 and halts, facing away from the camera.

[0:00:51] - SCP-XXXX-A bows deeply, still facing the wall.

[0:00:59] - SCP-XXXX-A begins to slowly waltz in circles.

[5:59:59] - Playback ends.
