Michael Jackson‘s weird arsenal of grunts, chirps and squeals was an invaluable part of his music. But as it turns out, by themselves, they’re just sort of terrifying.

Uploaded by YouTuber michaelm2391, this video purports to play every single Michael Jackson grunt. (It attained popularity on Reddit, which is why a large proportion of the comments on YouTube are from trolls.) We have neither the expertise nor the time to confirm or disconfirm the claim that this features every single MJ grunt, but the clip’s pretty entertaining nonetheless.

Or, as michaelm2391 writes succinctly in the video’s YouTube description, “mesmerizing.”
