What's Wrong With This Picture?

What's Wrong With This Picture? or What's Wrong? or What's wrong with this image? is an infamous internet screamer created by Jaybill McCarthy, originally hosted on his personal website "Jaybill" in early 2002, (possibly late 2001). Many copies have since appeared on the internet, and is an example of an early e-mail chainletter prank.

The animation disguises itself as a normal stock photo of a dining room; depicting an open window, table, chairs, paintings, and flowers. The viewer is then asked to find something wrong in it, however, there are no actual errors in the picture itself. After about 30 seconds the screen cuts to a grainy black and white photo of an eyeless woman with a wide mouth, accompanied by audio of a man screaming. The animation repeats afterward,

The screamer face itself originates from gettyimages, and was created by photographer 'Gandee Vasan' in 1998 as a stock photo inspired by "The Scream" by Edvard Munch. This stock image was also used (albeit heavily edited) for the cover of the 2001 film "Maniacts."

Jaybill himself is the one who doctored the stock photo into its now infamous form we know today, starting with this screamer and then the ones succeeding it.
