I SCREAMED IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS ACADEMIC BUILDING WHEN SHE PULLED OUT THE HARPOON GUN OH MY GOD

The shot in the golden globe trailer where Olaf is wearing what I’m assuming is Violet’s dress for the play and twirling around in it is genuinely and profoundly upsetting to me…like they’re playing it for laughs in that trailer, sure, but really stop and think about it for a second. really look at it, closely, on its own.

Even with no context, without any consideration of the show’s plot, this gif is upsetting. the dim lighting. the drunken awkwardness of the twirl. his blank expression. the fact that he looks like he’s wearing pyjamas underneath the dress. this entire sequence of recorded images feels cursed. if it were worse quality it would look like something from fucking Memory Hole.

then you take into account the context of the series and the accompanying voice over and it gets even worse. I mean holy shit. A bridal dress of my own design??? what the fuck, Count Olaf?? What the actual fuck?? apparently not content with just marrying an underage girl, he had to make everything 1000 times creepier by getting a dress made specifically for said underage girl. how far ahead did he plan this?? how did he know what size to make it?? was he secretly looking at the tags on her clothes while she was sleeping or is he just really good at guessing the measurements of teenage girls?? I don’t want to answer these questions. and he can’t even stop there!! he’s got the fucking dress, he could just leave it the fuck alone but nO…he’s gotta put the thing on and pretend he’s a ballerina just for shits I guess??

I mean…This is some Ed Gein level bullshit. regardless of how much they play up the goofy side of Olaf, regardless of whether or not this scene will be played for laughs in the show, this is the most Serial Killer thing olaf has ever done.
