Disturbing Indie of the day

So I don't know if you needed to be disturbed right now or not, but your about to be.

I think that the reason that this is disturbing for me is the way the video slows down between when he is singing.  The juxtaposition of movement and intense unblinking staring is jarring because humans have a very hard time remaining still even for short periods of time.  This makes the intense menacing, or more menacing than it would otherwise be.  Small non-verbal movements betray us as human, and it is feedback that we process subconsciously, seriously try for just a few minutes and see how intensely hard it is for you to not move.
