Stock photos are weird enough. You search “computer man” and photos appear with people smiling and staring in front of a Dell laptop from 2002. If that wasn’t disturbing enough, some strange and funny stock photos have you asking “WTF is this for? Why??” Every stock photo tells a story. Sometimes, it’s a story of unrequited love. Other times, it’s a story about a man in a horse costume holding a gun and freshly-baked pie. They’re everywhere and they make no sense. The Reddit users on r/WTFstockphotos can’t even explain them all.
I’ve decided to take a guess what purpose these photos serve. By the end, we’ll all feel as though we’ve had a fever dream.
