With a jetpack fueled by insomnia and an easily amused mind, It Came From the Interwebs scours and sifts through everything that has ever appeared on the internet (more or less) to find a few things that you should know about every week. These things come from the interwebs, hence the clever name.
This week: The Pizza Dance, The Widowmaker Hamburger, a Trippy PSA, the Ugly Duckling, and Fun with Cartography!
1. Fun with Cartography
Thanks to the folks over at Lipstick and Ligature we have this re-imagined map of Europe as viewed through the xenophobic eyes of America. There are also other versions of the map as seen through the eyes of other dumb countries that I don’t care about — because we’re number 1!
2. The Widowmaker
I rescind the above bit of irrational patriotism, America isn’t number one — if we were, we would have thought of this first. At Burger King in Japan, you can apparently add 15 pieces of bacon to your hamburger for a minimal fee. Excessive? Indeed, but it doesn’t compare to this mountain of pig fat and regret.
Filled with a deathwish and a dash of whimsy, this reporter with a doodle on his shirt where his exploded heart once was spent the equivalent of $90 on a cheeseburger with 1,050 pieces of bacon and shockingly, a single, solitary piece of useless, over-matched lettuce. No word on if he or his immediate heirs finished the burger, but there is a video showing him sweaty and possibly heading for a toilet or a defibrillator. By the way, dig the fancy music playing in the background, somebody knows how to use all the buttons on their Casio.
I’ve always wanted to see a tense, live-action Icelandic thriller wrapped around the tale of Donald Duck, his whore-wife Daisy, a Rastafarian dope-merchant Goofy, and a death bed “screw you” from Scrooge McDuck. The comedy group Mid-Island apparently heard my prayers and answered them with the NSFWish short film, Den Lille Grimme Aelling (The Ugly Duckling).
Buzzfeed, or whoever first made this, killed the Ghost-Pac phenomena with the swack of a gloved Bat-hand. We’ll miss you Ghost-Pac, please don’t come back as a hologram of a hologram meme.
5. Trippy PSA
How high were the people who made this anti-pot PSA that looks like it was directed at 9-year-old stoners? And wait, is that the Canterville Ghost asking me to find him? Did he just say he’s inside of me? Oh shit!
