Here's something you didn't know would disturb you: temporary flesh-colored skin "implants" that many celebrities are modeling on social media.


Kim Kardashian posted pictures of herself on social media "wearing" a choker...of sorts.


Chrissy Teigen posted an even more extreme photo, sporting a strange series of feathers growing out of her chest.

It turns out these celebrities are all wearing the "implants" to promote "A. Human, an experimental immersive theatrical experience," which is opening in New York City on September 5.


Creator Simon Huck told VOGUE these body modifications are part of his vision of the future humans inhabit in the show:

We didn't want to root any of our modifications on the idea of existing insecurities or discomforts. A. Human is about the freedom to explore this world and live in this world in any way you choose.



And though some may find them freaky, Huck doesn't believe the "implants" are necessarily a bad thing in the world of his show:

When you think of the future, you think dark, dystopian—there are all these images that come to mind. I didn't want to create a utopian world, but I definitely wanted to create a world that was optimistic or, at the bare minimum, neutral.



Many on the internet, inspired by the celebrities' new "style" are modeling their own implants.




These people have some serious make-up skills!


Unfortunately, without a lot of context as to why they're wearing the implants, the internet has been pretty merciless in its disgust at the strange fashion.


Are the implants really that disturbing? We'll all have to see A. Human to find out.



But if so many celebs are into it, why not give A. Human a chance?

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
