This is going to get ugly

It seems beauty is not only in the eye of the beholder, but in the exact direction in which the eye is pointing. Staring at a cross between a flashing series of paired faces rather than at the faces themselves makes them look distorted and grotesque. Perhaps if you repeat the experiment with Jedward, they would seem perfectly normal?
