Twitter users can’t stop laughing after someone posted the opening scene from the 1998 film Meet Joe Black, which features a series of awkward turns between two characters who are clearly romantically interested in one another but don’t know how to start that conversation.
If you’veever seen the movie, you know just how weird and awkward it is. The movie stars Brad Pitt as Death, who ends up taking over the body of “Young Man in Coffee Shop,” who dies early on in the film.
His death comes out of nowhere and occurs in such a random matter that it sets the tone for the rest of the movie. And that tone is: we have no idea what tone we’re going for.
Seriously, it’s not even cringe-inducing, because there are times you find yourself thinking everyone must be fully aware of how absurd the movie is…
