They Have Taken Control is a video on the Poppy YouTube channel. It is the 60th video of the Poppy era. It was uploaded on August 8th, 2016 and has over 1 million views.


The video consists of Poppy standing in place, while a mysterious, Charlotte-esque voice speaks. This voice presumably belongs to Them, who are mentioned in the video's title. The dialogue is very similar to that of hypnosis.


You will pledge your allegiance to Poppy.

You will do anything Poppy says.

Poppy loves you and will always love you.

Poppy welcomes you into her universe.

Feel the love of Poppy flow through you.

Feel the pulse of the internet as we become one.

Prepare yourself for Programming Sequence Two.

Programming complete.


  • The video's title marks the first mention of Them.
  • Poppy's song "Drop in the Ocean" is used as background music in the video.
