Five Nights at Freddy’s is a popular video game franchise that has gained a massive following since its release in 2014. The franchise has since expanded to include books, merchandise and a movie adaptation.

Here is the trailer for the latest movie.

The game is set in a fictional pizza restaurant called “Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza Place,” which is known for its creepy singing animatronic mascots. And TikTokkers are posting about visiting a creepy pizzeria named Freddy’s Fazbear Pizzeria in LA.

The pizzeria is supposed to be a family-friendly joint that provides entertainment in the form of singing animatronic mascots. However, as the player soon discovers, there is something deeply unsettling about these animatronics. The animatronics are in fact sentient, and don’t have good intentions.

Freddy Fazbear's pizza is a facade

As players push on through the series, they find out more about the restaurant’s dark history and its awful secrets.

Let’s hope the facade becomes an actual restaurant one day! But as for the TikTokkers claiming it is real, disappointingly, it isn’t …
