Funny Video Puts a Slightly Creepy Spin on Asking Someone to ‘Take’ Your Picture

Dominic, the guy behind the popular web comic Domics, put together this humorous animation about asking a stranger to take your picture. We’re not sure why, but this really cracked us up, even as it sort of creeped us out at the same time.

Given the massive amount of gear news and other more serious posts that have made their way onto the site over the last couple of days, we thought this would provide some much-needed comic relief. So check out the video at the top and if you want to see more Domics comics and animations, head over to the comic’s website and/or Facebook page.

    Reminds me of the episode of the classic Sapphire and Steel: where that faceless guy was trapping people in photos. Was one of the freakiest things I’ve ever seen.

    Tripod? On a phone without specific grip attachment?

    It is possible to buy a gadget to attach a phone to a tripod.

    I saw this as having two meanings, the comical word play on “take” which i thought was quite amusing but also (i don’t know if they intended it or not) possible copyright implications, i.e. he took the photos so it belongs to him even though he took it on someone else’s camera, one of the reasons I rarely let other people use my camera, even friends.

    In terms of copyright though, yes, he does own the picture.
