Oh, sorry, did you want to sleep tonight?

The pic was uploaded to Reddit on Wednesday by Otto Rongedal, a 16-year-old high school student who lives in Stockholm.

"I was waiting for a train to take me back to school, when I saw this," Rongedal told HuffPost. "It gave me the creeps."

Well, no wonder, dude!

The picture is actually a work of art by South African photographer Pieter Hugo, who documented Nigeria's fledgling film industry for a series called "Nollywood." Stockholm's Museum of Photography is currently showcasing Hugo's work.
