Prepare for a lesson in perspective, courtesy of “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”

Yet another teaser for FX’s creepy anthology series has hit the web, introducing what appear to be two more characters added to the already packed-to-bursting cast.

The brief clip depicts a man so tall that only a portion of him fits in the screen. As his towering presence fills the monitor, a wee little muscle man struts between the giant’s legs, standing defiantly in arms-akimbo stance, even though he’s not even sack-high to his scenemate. (Tiny people appear to be a theme this season; “American Horror Story: Freak Show” had previously enlisted the world’s smallest woman for the upcoming run.)

Set at a 1950s freak show in Florida, the latest iteration of the “American Horror Story” saga stars returning actors such as Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson (who plays a two-headed woman), Kathy Bates (as the bearded lady) and Gabourey Sidibe, and brings aboard newcomers such as Michael Chiklis, Finn Wittrock and Patti LaBelle.
