Parents have always told their children to brighten up for photographs, but these individuals posing for Odd Stuff Magazine have taken that advice a bit too far.

The people in this photo series have been adorned with large plastic lips that stretch the mouth apart in a comical fashion. Looking into the mouths of these folks is like looking into a toothy cave of terror. These wide mouths have managed to spread to a variety of professions including chefs, doctors and news reporters.

The people of this photo series from Odd Stuff Magazine demonstrate what it looks like to truly smile. Despite having plastic stretching their mouths in all directions, these people look extremely happy.
