Who knew an innocent photo with Pikachu could get so weird?
Pikachu, what are you doing? Don’t lick that girl!
If you’re ever lucky enough to meet a Pokémon, or someone in a large Pokémon suit, just hope that they don’t make it awkward by sticking their hand through the mouth to pat your head.
The original uploader of this bizarre photo is 19-year-old Taylor, who goes by the twitter handle @destroyfrog. According to BuzzFeed, she and her friend met Pikachu at FanimeCon, a cosplay and anime festival held in San Jose, California, May 26-29.
And for some reason, Pikachu reached out his hand tongue and licked Taylor on the head as she uncomfortably obliged.
The photo is already weird AF, but Redditors had a bit of fun and attempted to make the photo even more strange with a good ol’ fashioned Photoshop battle.
Of course, there was an ‘Alien’ reference.
A B-List Pika that’s just a little…off.
Not a human in there.
A creation masterpiece.
Pika, keep your hand tongue to yourself please. There are children present.
