As someone said in this thread,

I sometimes wonder, if William Gibson hadn't predicted in Pattern Recognition that people would obsess over short, cryptic videos online, would people still obsess over short, cryptic videos online? I know that for my part I can't really get into that kind of obsession because I always feel like I'm a character in Pattern Recognition when I'm looking at them.

  1. Nice. I'd like to hear more of it.
    So far, it sounds/looks most like Karin Dreijer Andersson to me.

    In my dreams, it's Britney Spears. I have a long term fantasy that she - on her own or under the influence of someone - takes an artsy left turn because, why not?

    I've thought the exact same thing as that metafilter poster.

    ...when the strawberry cake appeared.

    And it can't be an American pop star, as the lower set of teeth are slightly crooked.

    I guess everyone will be disappointed when it just turns out to be viral marketing for some big corporation.

      Not me. I don't care whether it's Pepsi or Old Spice Britney Spears or whichever corporate-bimbo-makeover everyone seems to want to believe that it is. The videos are cool. Money was spent on interesting art. Good for them.

    My boss just sat here, staring at these with me. When it popped up the sperm whale, he suddenly cried out, "NO SHIT!" I immediately demanded what he meant, what I'd missed, because it wasn't adding up for me, and he was just blinked, then said, "It's the only thing that makes sense." WHAT?
