I can understand how others may not care but it felt so out of place and silly in the world Burton established (again, it looks great visually though). Just because it's not meant to be logical doesn't give it a free pass. If Iron Man started break dancing in the middle of the NYC Battle in The Avengers, it wouldn't be logical and it would seem out of place and it likely wouldn't just get a free pass because it's not supposed to be logical.
But, as I said, it is a gorgeous shot no matter what your opinion on the context is. I'd love to see the mechanism go off during a party though.
