Just wanted to point out for your wtf is going on gifs of Dan eye eating phil; in fnaf sister something dan also looks at phil with hunger at like 17:59 then looks at the camera like shit cant edit that out and laughes bc he fucked up and it is one of my most favorite moments tbh
okay this one it’s the one that fucks with me the most, because i literally don’t know what the fuck is going on.
[for analysis sake i’ve made most of the gifs on 0,2 frame rate and, sharpened, brightened and coloured them but besides that, nothing’s been changed]
let’s break it down, because i have a lot of thoughts.
firstly, the game is at a point where they’re like trapped in some vent and the lady is telling them that the guy who’s helping them is gonna tell them to do something, but the lady tells them that if they do, they’re gonna die.
so, naturally, phil turns to dan and says “so where’s the truth?”, that prompts to them staring at eachother:
one of the things that fuck with me the most, it’s that most of this exchange is highlighted by not showing the game, but them directly, which is a conscious editing decision, if they wanted it to go unnoticed, or at least not highlight it, they would’ve sticked to the little cam on the corner. But they didn’t, the stayed on them looking at eachother.
And then, that’s the most odd thing of all: dan, immediately (this is literally after they look at eachother, no stop), looks at something that’s not in frame, it might be something on the table, or something in phil’s lap, we do not know, but dan looks at it once and then back at phil’s eyes, then does it a second time.
Phil’s face goes from kind of serene at his remark of “where’s the truth” to, like kind of trying to understand the situation. To me, Dan is trying to tell him something, trying to transmit an idea without verbalizing it, and phil’s trying to figure out what he means, but doesn’t want to direct his gaze to whatever dan is looking at, but seems to realise what he means, because exactly after this, they look at the camera.
And it’s very funny, this is incredibly funny, because a) they both turn to look at the camera at the same fucking time b) dan’s face is like acknowledging that something just happened and we witnessed it but c) phil just looks fucking concerned, his face of distress kinda makes this situation incredibly hysterical.
And then, during the “the office stare”, they cut again to the game.
and the stare still is happening, dan still looks like uh oh just caught us in something, and phil’s is like oh my god u caught is in something.
And the game is still going on in the background, giving them more informatin and instructions on what they have to do, but they’re not focused on that at all, they’re focused on the (i assume) inside joke that they just shared and a cheeky one at that, that they’re even kind of concerned that they did that on camera.
Finally, while Phil stills looks concerned, dan dissolves into giggles. [i’ve zoomed in, into the tiny camera at the corner]
phil is STILL looking at the camera in total dispair, and dan has his ever typical giggles of “this situation is ridiculous, i can’t believe this just happened”, he decided to just look at the screen again and kind of, let the moment pass, while phil’s doesn’t even SMILE ONCE, he’s just absolutely concerned, which is RIDICULOUS.
and then dan keeps laughing.
Dan’s just kind of, ohhh myy godd okay, let’s focus on whatever this lady is saying right now. And looks at somewhere else, that’s not the screen to just kind of focus on the game’s voice again, still giving them instructions. Meanwhile Phil just kind of sucks in a breath, looks at the game and just,,, like,, turns the page on that one, zero smiles, zero further acknowledgement.
What makes this odd to me is that: a) dan is obviously trying to transmit an idea to phil that’s maybe a cheeky answer to “where’s the truth” b) they clearly don’t want to share the joke, they look at the camera like, wow this happened yet let’s ignore it c) DAN’S LAUGH like haha okay this just happened lol d) phil’s concerned face says it all, dan’s laughing because they just did something cheeky meanwhile phil doesn’t think it’s funny at all ??? e) they DECIDED TO KEEP IT IN THE VIDEO???? not only that but HIGHLIGHT IT by putting it on full screen, if they didn’t want to share it or raise suspicion, why did they keep the thing in, in the first place???????
