    ewww… where’s his other hand!?



  2. Anna says:

    I SO wish I knew what this little girl’s name was…..because she looks EXACTLY like a girl I know now (who is in her 20’s). If I could post a photo of her today, you’d see what I mean

  3. Santa/Satan? says:

    Ok….it’s like a bad car accident…forget the girl, I think Santa is watching ME! Stop staring, stop staring…

  4. Pants says:

    They are both thinking “FEAST!!!!FEEEEASSSSST!!!!!!!!!”

  5. Lilith says:

    i too have a picture with this background…my friends always comment on how freaky the background is

  6. LeManda says:

    LM*AO We just had our 1 year old sons picture taken at WalMart with this background!! I honestly figured it saved me the time of waiting in line to see Santa…guess now I just have to live with pedi Santa trying to get my kid…

  7. Emily says:

    hahaha this one makes me laugh every time I see it.

  8. Marie says:

    the first thing i thought of when i saw this is “not the momma!!”
    please tell me someone understands that… or i’m just really old.

    ROFL – Love the comment!!!

    Haha! I used to work at a Wal-Mart Portrait Studio and one day I was bored and decided to reorganize the book that we used to display the backdrops. I renamed the backdrop pictured above from “Santa is Here!” to “Santa’s Secret”. It made my day every time a parent requested “Santa’s Secret”

  12. Courtney says:

    We picked this backdrop on purpose because of super creepy santa, cracks me up every time I look at it.

  13. Will says:

    In a related story an amber alert was resolved peacefully when voyeurclaus was arrested outside of the victims home when his sleigh wouldn’t start.

  14. Erin says:

    And as soon as she turns around, there GOES Santa Claus! Poor kid. Hope she got a make-over for Christmas.

  15. lucrezia borgia says:

    It looks like the sacra is going to be th other way around. Watch out Santa!

  16. Skipping Lunch says:

    Some stores will do anything to avoid having to pay an extra employee!

  17. Hannah says:

    My cousin did this to her kid, too. He’s terrified of Santa, but I guess she felt compelled to have some sort of Santa picture. Every time I look at the picture I want to scream, “Don’t turn around, Collin!”

  18. Tony says:

    This one is never awkward. It’s just too common. If it was a person and not a painted backdrop, it would be a different story.

  19. meche says:

    my daughter took this same pick when she was a few weeks old. it was her first professional picture. i didnt even notice santa until my best friend complained about how creepy he was. strange enough after that i ran into several people who hated the background because everyone’s kid took this pick at walmart and kmart and it had the same creepy pedi santa in the window

  20. judy says:

    totally had this done as a kid!

  21. kiki says:

    that box and bow have seen better days………

  22. Snobo says:

    i just think its funny that santa and the lil girl are in focus but the tree isnt….

  23. PaulaJ says:

    “Muhahahaha it’s Christmas!”

  24. Cameron the Manface says:

    Hey this is my little girl be nice!

  25. Dane says:

    Here comes Stalker Claus, Here comes Stalker Claus, Right down Stalker Claus Lane…..Alarms are ringing, children grinning, All is scary and fright, Lock your windows and say your prayers, ‘Cause Stalker Claus is coming tonight!

  26. annibananie says:

    Bahahaha! Creepy Santa…. creepin’ up on ya! Look out!

  27. doreen says:

    Next week on Dateline’s To Catch a Predator: Santa!

  28. Leah says:

    I’m pretty sure that little girl is sneering. Little girls aren’t supposed to sneer!

    She’s definitely gonna take Santa OUT.

  29. JH says:

    You guys are so mean.

    “Shorthly before midnight Regan felt a strange sensation…like she was being watched. Suddenly Ellen Burstyn burst into the room with a steaming bowl of pea soup and announced: No thanks, we already own a penguin.”

  32. Jeff B. says:

    Wow, what’s with the falling shrapnel? is this London during the raids? What’s with her Spock ear? I think Santa is saying :”shhh, don’t tell her I’m here so I can sneak away quietly…”

  33. itsme says:

    This picture is creepy on so many levels. Santa, that poor little girl…YIKES!

  34. Marta says:

    loooove Santa’s squared glasses…so classy!

  35. laurie says:

    So is she just laying on some carpeted table there or is Santa just much shorter in person…?

  36. Shannon says:

    I think we have seen a photo like this before on AFP. But still very creepy!

  37. Tim says:

    Remember, Santa’ watching you.

    No, he REALLY IS watching you…!

  38. Poindexter says:

    Penultimate frame of “The X-mas Chainsaw Massacre.”

  39. Lou says:

    There’s a horror movie look in her eyes. Combined with all the scratches on her face, and the hole in her ear, I’d say it’s more creepy than awkward, eek!

  40. Ken says:

    A Christmas stalking?

  41. Ureek says:

    She is a young Vampire planning her strike on the unsuspecting, blood-engorged Santa

  42. Deb says:

    The fact that this was a standard backdrop doesn’t make this any less awkward to me. It makes the viewer feel somehow complicit in whatever is going to happen next.

  43. G'Tron says:

    I don’t know if I would pick this photo retoucher again. He seems to have a strange interest in the emphasizing and placing loving delineation on the inner whorls of one’s ear.

  44. Bah ha ha says:

    LOL I love how AFP is trying to warn the little girl… I hope she gets the message before it’s too late!

  45. V.J. says:

    …he knows when your awake!!!

  46. Bon says:

    I thought it was going to be more like, Shhh, I’m just about to scare the crap out of Santa Claus.

  47. Kerrie says:

    Nothing awkward about that. It was the standard backdrop for either Sears or JCPenney for a few years in a row.

  48. Gayle says:

    This is a Walmart backdrop… They tried to use it when I had my daughter’s picture taken, it weirded me out then too…
