About

What Scares You The Most is a series of photoshopped images based on an image by the comedy project Obvious Plant. The original photograph features a series of children being asked what scares them the most, a parody of a Halloween questionnaire that would be found on an elementary school classroom bulletin board.. Edits of the image feature other answers from the students for comedic effect.

Origin

On October 19th, 2016, the comedy project Obvious Plant posted an image parody of four students answering the question "What Scares You the Most?" as part of a Halloween questionnaire. While three of the four students chose simple, child-like fears, such as "Werewolves" and "Ghosts," the third child, Dylan, answered, "The unstoppable marching of time that is slowly guiding us all towards an inevitable death." The post (shown below) received more than 1,800 likes on Instagram [1] and 63,000 points (81% upvoted) and 1,500 comments on the /r/Funny subreddit. [2]
