Watch the Velvet Buzzsaw trailer and check out the best bewildered reactions so far

The trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw has pushed it from "yet another Netflix exclusive that Netflix never talks about" to instant internet gold.  The darkly comedic horror film from many of the same folks behind Nightcrawler (including writer/director Dan Gilroy and star Jake Gyllenhall) is way weirder than anybody had expected. Though that's usually better than being unexpectedly normal, Velvet Buzzsaw's special brand of unhinged horror has struck Twitter users in a special way.

Others attempted to process what they just witnessed with the help of some perspective shifting.
