~ Ayuwoki's signature call.
The Ayuwoki is an Internet meme revolving around the late Michael Jackson. It has originated as a Spanish-speaking Creepypasta story being a deliberate misspelling of the lyrics "Annie, are you okay?" from Michael's signature song "Smooth Criminal".
The meme was originally begun by the YouTuber thomasrengstorff who created an animatronic version of the real Michael, and published a video about it titled "My Ghoul Jackson". The meme began to spread on January 3, 2019, with an edited version of "My Ghoul Jackson" and an added backstory behind the video. According to the urban legend, Ayuwoki would sneak into its victim's room at night to say "Hee hee" in reference to Michael's vocal riff. The growth of the Ayuwoki became so pronounced, most likely because of the events regarding the demise of the Momo meme, many people believe that Ayuwoki was a conglomeration of Michael Jackson and Momo. Ayuwoki quickly became an exploitable meme with many people taking the challenge of calling Ayuwoki at three in the morning.
In Video Games
A game titled Escape the Ayuwoki was released around the end of March where the premise of the game is the player is kidnapped by the Ayuwoki, who takes them to his dark and disorderly mansion. The objective is to escape the house without making much noise as the Ayuwoki could hear everything in the house. The Ayuwoki is depicted as being an enigmatic, feral beast who tends to run on all fours and has an array of razor-sharp teeth. If caught, the Ayuwoki would kill the player in a bloodthirsty way, presumably by eating them alive. The series is still ongoing, with two games currently being released.
Tapes in the game reveal that the Ayuwoki is presumably a malevolent entity dubbed an "elder", and requires child sacrifices from a cult that praises it and seek to gain immortality by feeding the scary creature. Sometime when he was alive, Michael Jackson joined the cult,in hopes for eternal youth, but after learning of the child sacrifices, wished to step out of it. His friend warns him saying that he wouldn't get out alive, or at least, well. Jackson explains that he wants to expose him, and prepares the tapes to record the session. However, he is found out by Mr. Carlon, and as punishment, sacrificed to the entity. To the horror of the cult members, something goes horribly wrong, and the Ayuwoki is born. The Ayuwoki adopts some of Michael Jackson's features, and this is why he sports a likeness.
