Ah, mods. They've brought the fantastical world of PC gaming to a whole new level with the massive scope they bring with them for altering, improving and personalising your games. But with great power comes great responsibility or in the case of YouTuber Merfish, great irresponsibility.

Merfish has a particular brand of modding mashups which involve transforming the bloody, violent world of GTA V into whimsical caricatures of our childhoods. And so we present for your approval...

Teletubbies Recreated in GTA V

Yep. That's right.

With music and audio from the well loved British children's television show, Teletubbies - which featured anamorphic creatures with antennae and television screens in their stomachs - Merfish has created a slightly horrific mash up of the four GTA V characters taking on the roles of the Teletubbies Tinky Winky, Dipsy, LaLa and Po.

And if that doesn't sound like enough nightmare fuel it of course ends violently in true Grand Theft Auto style, with machetes and disturbing air thrusting a-plently.

But Teletubbies isn't the only children's franchise that's getting the Merfish Grand Theft Auto treatment, as Trevor Philips puts on his Pokémon cap in his endeavours to be the very best, like no-one ever was...

Pokémon Recreated in GTA V

I don't know what's more disturbingly hilarious, seeing the GTA characters as Teletubbies or as Pokémon. Misty and Brock make an appearance here too, as do Jessie and James of Team Rocket.

And if you enjoyed that you can also check out If Pokemon Was Like Grand Theft Auto to see an average day in the life of Pokémon trainer Trevor as his "Mikachu" takes down a "Floyderpie"... with extreme prejudice.

You can check out the rest of Merfish's work, which includes superheroes, a land-whale and a whole host of other GTA V mash ups, via the YouTube Channel here.
