One of them is Keats:

That's going to give me nightmares.

I also meant to comment on the hand under his chin pose. Not really "right" for reading a poem about your impending death. Better for, say, your senior picture. Or just staring into the distance. Once you start talking, you can't pull it off.

I think the way his head keeps bobbing up and down and his neck elongates is especially frightening.

I kind of like it, but I am so annoyed by the copyright notices I won't be linking to it or sharing it. Too bad because the guy has created something that could be fun to watch.
