Vicious Cycle

June 28, 2010

I was recently viewing the Know Your Meme video for “Weegee,” which discussed how the internet meme developed to the point where looking at the blank-stare of the Luigi character would have adverse effects: “Anyone who sees Weegee becomes entranced by his stare, eventually becoming a Weegee themselves.”

Hmm…  This sounds familiar…  To loosely paraphrase, “Anything that bears the image of an Angel, becomes an Angel.”  In the recent Doctor Who episode The Time of Angels, the TARDIS team discover that the Weeping Angels – creepy creatures that turn to stone when something is looking at them – can propogate in photographs, video and even mental images.

So, the natural question…  What would happen in a Weegee/Weeping Angel staring contest?

Rinse and repeat.

    I’d say Mario’s in for a surprise.
