Okay, I know I’ve said this before, but I have to say it again. This is literally the FUNNIEST thing I’ve seen all year. She’s not exactly doing anything spectacular, but it’s downright hilarious.

Stephanie Leigh Rosecame up with this concept she called “anti-selfies”, which involves her playing dead at world-famous tourist locations and landmarks [1]. Anyone who visits these places would put up their best poses to get a good picture, but not Stephanie. She just lies down in an effortless dead posture and gets her shots. Even in the midst of a crowd or right in the middle of a party, she doesn’t care. She’s still playing dead straight-up.

The photography performance artist has garnered 39.5K followers on Instagram. Her incredible work has continued to go viral all over social media.

The most creative thing about her photos is that she’s got the exact same dead pose in all of them. With her arms turned outward and spread diagonally, her hair flayed out in equal parts around her, and her legs spread widely apart, she’s captured in the most exciting and exotic locations around the world. Weird, funny, silly? Choose your own description. I think she’s AMAZING.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from her Instagram page.

Even Santa and Mrs. Claus have no idea what to do
