Remember the C=64-izer, the quick hack to display an image in the style of the Commodore 64?
Recently, I’ve started getting hits to this demo image of the “O RLY?” owl — lots of ’em.
It turns out that the C=64-ized rendition of this image is now the top hit for “O RLY” on Google Image Search; pretty bizarre, since there are obvious better images on the first search page, one result along in fact. What’s more, the page listed as the ‘origin page’, http://taint.org/tag/today, doesn’t even use that text.
This has resulted in lots of Myspace kiddies etc. obliviously using the C=64 rendering. Yay for Commodore ;)Comments closed
