Making you feel a lot of ways: People Are Really Conflicted About This Nude Claymation Video

Hi, stranger: Prepare to be deeply disturbed, but somehow also oddly soothed.


Artist Kirsten Lepore uploaded the claymation video “Hi Stranger” (above) to YouTube Monday and reactions have been interesting to say the least.

At first glance, the clip, which features a nude, dead-eyed clay man with a prominent butt uttering sweet-but-creepy nothings to the viewer, is just plain unsettling.

But some viewers, it seems, started to have more complicated feelings.

Feelings of being comforted, of feeling like maybe everything was OK.

Not that the initial feelings of discomfort ever go away.

Bye, stranger. And please, let us know how you feel.
