Transmission is a video on the Poppy YouTube channel. It is the 74th video of the Poppy era. It was uploaded on August 28th, 2016.

Theme

The video displays Poppy's personality speaking through a computer, seeming to support theories that Poppy is a robot or an android. Her words are displayed on a Commodore model 1802 monitor and spoken by a female text-to-speech voice. Poppy laments that she thought the viewer loved her, and asks what she can do to make them love her. At the end of the video, she makes the ironic statement of "I'm only human", then says "I'm Poppy", revealing that she is indeed the one who is speaking through the computer.

Trivia

  • This video is the first Poppy video that Poppy herself is absent from, though the computer that appears in this video is assumed to be Poppy in computer form.
    • It also remains the only Poppy video to not feature Poppy or any recurring characters.
  • The Commodore monitor shown in this video is similar to that of Computer Boy. Another similar monitor appears in the lyric video for "I'm Poppy" and the single artwork for "Let's Make a Video", as well as the artwork for Blame Candy's debut EP.
  • The video could be a reference to Mars Argo's Computer Show episode "Our Songs in Your Videos".
