Ansel Elgort Just Randomly Shared 17 Shirtless Pics On Instagram, And Nobody Knows WTF Is Going On

Ansel Elgort overdid it on Instagram. We’re not sure what kick he was on, but he decided to post 17 consecutive selfies in under ten minutes.

Was he trying to perfect the art of the selfie, inflate his ego over his winsome looks, or experimenting with his artistic side?

We shouldn’t care, because apparently social media users would rather discuss politics or the latest histrionics from The Bachelorette on their newsfeeds.

Then again, this bizarre, unexplainable stunt concocted by the Baby Driver actor is the very thing viral sensations are made of.

People are genuinely stumped trying to figure out what prompted the 25-year-old to go all shutter-happy.

Here are some samples of his shirtless, scowl-ridden mugshots. What do you make of them?

Elgort’s girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan, favored the image below.

“I think this one is the best but they’re all pretty good tbh.”

 Zoë Kravitz couldn’t make heads or tails over the series of portraits.

“dude. what is happening right now ? lol.”

So many angles to consider.  Has he found his light?

It seems he was missing, and this was his way of saying he’s back — but 17 times?

Don’t look him in the eye.

People don’t know what to think. But this person isn’t mad about it.

No explanation is necessary.

Over on Twitter, users were just as perplexed.

Whatever is brewing inside his head, his posts are generating buzz as the trailer for his new movie, The Goldfinch — directed by John Crowley based on the novel of the same name by Donna Tartt — dropped on Wednesday. Could there be a connection?

You decide. Watch the trailer for The Goldfinch, below.
