The image was posted to the popular – but often cruel – board Wedding Shamers by a user based in the U.S.
While the identity of the couple is unknown, over 100 commentors on the thread spared no expenses for their feelings when they compared the image to the ‘stuff of nightmares’.
Trippy: A couple’s wedding photo has been mocked when it was shared to Reddit, as users nicknamed the bride ‘tinychin’ and the groom ‘earface’ as a result of the effect
Sharing the screenshot of an Instagram upload, ‘ReyAborealis’, believed to be a California-born female user, simply said, ‘Lol this count?’
The photo quickly went viral on the thread as users were equally stunned, bemused and perplexed.
‘I literally cannot stop laughing at his ear silhouetted by his smaller head looking like his whole face is an ear,’ someone wrote.
‘What about her half bald head and cyclops eye,’ asked another.
‘I can’t figure out what they’re trying to do here. My brain only sees earface man and 1/2 droopy face girl. Great wedding,’ another wrote sarcastically.
Many people speculated about how the wedding day went down for the unknown couple.
Dragged: Reddit users couldn’t wrap their heads around the edited photo, with some calling it reminiscent of having a ‘fever dream’
One person mocked, ‘Do you, Earface, take Tinychin to be your lawfully wedded wife, promising to love and cherish, through joy and sorrow, sickness and health, and whatever challenges you may face, for as long as you both shall live?’
The general consensus was that people could not ‘decipher’ how the couple were left looking so different from their human selves.
Countless Reddit commentors even said they had been ‘staring’ at the photograph trying to understand it.
One person even drew parallels to optical illusions where you have to figure out what an abstract image is trying to depict.
‘I can semi decipher the groom, but the bride I can’t figure it out. And usually I’m good at seeing both items in those ‘is it a witch or young woman?’ Vase or whatever else the item is. Lol,’ a user said.
Others just seemed confused as to why a couple would pay for their wedding photos to look this way.
Major confusion: While everyone had different things to say, the general consensus was one of confusion and bemusement
‘Who signed off on this? Were they blind and lied to? This is hilarious,’ said one person.
‘Can you do our wedding photos? It’ll count as your wedding gift – plus you’ll get lots of exposure! Not a problem,’ joked another.
Someone else added, ‘This picture is terrifying. It’s the stuff of nightmares. Someone paid for this??’
‘Now that I’ve laughed and looked at this long enough was it possible they were going for a Tim Burton theme here,’ questioned one person.
Another said that they had seen a similar character in the movie Men in Black.
The viral photo comes just days after a Canadian couple became the talk of the internet after posing for an ill-judged The Handmaid’s Tale photo shoot.
The photo of Kendra Munro and Torsten Mueller, who live in Cambridge, Ontario, where The Handmaid’s Tale is filmed, spread like wildfire after it was shared by the photographers – and not in a good way.
Social media users slammed the now-infamous images for ‘missing the point’ of the show and they were widely condemned online.
