This Tim Burton-esque Cirque du Soleil first pitch might be the strangest and scariest of 2014

The Blue Jays invited the cast from Cirque du Soleil's "Kurios" to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Monday's game against the Cubs and, well, things got prrrrretty strange.

But as you can see, many in attendance seemed curious for Kurios. A few of the Cubs players were absolutely entranced.

We just hope they diverted their eyes in time to not witness this.

And after all this Tim Burton-type madness, the troupe delivered a perfect strike down the middle.

All relievers entering from the bullpen: take note.
