Still taken from the video.

In the upcoming short film Lightningface, Oscar Isaac plays a man named Basil who is having a bit of a breakdown. Written and directed by Brian Petsos, the short also includes voice acting from Kristen Wiig, and is not the first Petsos-Isaac-Wiig collaboration: Petsos also wrote 2012’s Revenge for Jolly!, a comedy-drama that also featured both Isaac and Wiig.

While the short looks enticing, let’s be honest: Its greatest legacy will probably be all of the new Oscar Isaac GIFs. As longtime fans of Isaac, we thought we might get the party started. Behold, a bounty of new Oscar Isaac GIFs—and some suggestions for how to apply them to everyday situations.
