The art of pausing shows or movies in an appealing way to your fellow viewers (can also be performed as a solo act, but it is more fulfilling when shared with others.) The paused screen is typically an especially absurd face or gesture, but is not limited to other pleasing images such as excessive cleavage or crotch shots. Some people are natural pause artists, but if you practice you can often hone your skill.

Jordan: That's a hilarious face.
Beth: I didn't do it on purpose, I'm just a natural pause artist.
