There’s something really creepy about this video of Melania Trump

The White House's holiday décor is scary, too.

Thanksgiving is over, which means that people—including folks at the White House—have already started celebrating Christmas. On Monday, the office of first lady Melania Trump unveiled the house’s decorations to visitors.

Judy Kurtz, a columnist for the Hill, captured a very still Trump enjoying a seasonal ballet performance.

Well, enjoying is probably not the right word to use. People quickly commented on how uncomfortable Trump—or maybe it’s her body double?—looks in the video.

And others thought the video was straight out of a scene in a horror movie.

The internet also mocked the White House’s Christmas decorations. One photo showed a tree at the end of a very long, dimly lit hallway with shadows of plants creating a storm-like image on the ceiling, and it quickly became a meme.

Happy holidays!
