The director of “Suicide Squad" -- that supervillain movie you keep hearing about but don't understand -- recently released a photograph of Jared Leto in costume as the Joker.
Apparently the Joker is in movies without Batman sometimes.
This was the grand unveiling:

But after Heath Ledger's spectacular and troubling portrayal of Batman's quintessential psychotic nemesis, people were underwhelmed with a costume that makes Leto look like the love interest in an Avril Lavigne video.
I'd like to think the brainstorming session to decide on the costume went like something this:
Director: So, I was driving by the mall, and I passed this boy with green hair and a skateboard...
Producer: SAY NO MORE!!
Anyway, here are 14 hipsters who Jared's Joker jacked his style from:
I'm a villain because I unsafely eat popsicles while riding a bicycle. I know what life on the edge is like.
I'm a villain because these headphones aren't even plugged in.
I'm a villain because I'm not wearing any deodorant on this raised arm.
I'm a villain because I make my friends stand on stuff to take pictures of me.
I'm a villain because I bought a yin-yang patch.
I'm a villain because my lower lip is weirdly too moist.
I'm a villain because I light scented candles while wearing a Satan bikini.
I'm a villain because everything I'm wearing was made with cow parts, except for my phone, which was made by underpaid Chinese laborers.
I'm a villain because I forgot a jacket and will need to borrow yours.
I'm a villain because secondhand smoke (some people just want to watch the world burn).
I'm a villain because I take two photographs that are almost identical and put them next to each other.
I'm a villain because TSA agents HATE me.
I'm a villain because... well, I'm Avril Lavigne. They use my music to torture terrorists.
