OK, so these are actually shots of an experiment designed to re-create facial expressions with electrical currents, but that just raises further questions. How did they convince a circus clown to donate his off hours to science? Is he actually in pain, or did the scientists want to simulate pain for their own amusement? And why? Like, just as a general question?
Flying at the Speed of Inappropriate
You're looking at an old-timey race pacing vehicle, and while this shot was presumably taken for "fun," that doesn't change the fact that there's something deeply unsettling about fascist Tobias Funke making half-naked Benjamin Button do all the work.
The boy's facial expression indicates that he knows more about life than he should at his tender age, and this knowledge has scarred him greatly. "Hurry, Manfred, to the lovenasium!" says the man. "Our latest acquisitions are await!"
"Please, sir, my name is Charlie. And I'm so very, very tired."
"Quiet, Manfred! You speak not, or else you get the whipping, yes?"
