Meta Overload: This is a GIF of a Vine of a Video of a Flipbook of a GIF of a Video

This is just crazy… It seems even the most standard subject — say, a first person view from the front of a wooden roller coaster — can go viral if you embed it in about six levels of meta.

According to Colossal, it was created by the Tumblog The Televangelist using a Flipbookit, and it really is a GIF, of a Vine, of a Video, of a Flipbook, of a GIF, of a Video, of a roller coaster. Say that five times fast…

    “a GIF, of a Vine, of a Video, of a Flipbook, of a GIF, of a Video”
    – That’s the most detached from reality and obscure interpretation of something super-simple I have seen since quite a while.

    This is the dickbutt of photography.

    I can’t decide if I just watched this for five minutes straight because it was that amusing… or I really just don’t want to work right now. Toss up.

    And if I were so inclined, I could create a desktop-recorded video of the GIF which I subsequently record on my camera, which I then record using my tablet pointed at the camera’s screen, which I then record from the tablet’s screen using my webcam, which I then record using the same desktop recording app on the computer before converting it to a video I convert to a webm I then make a GIF of.

    Or if anyone were so inclined, really.

    Do it and see what you get. Do not stop yourself to words.

    Digital is eating itself.

    That’d involve a bunch of effort on my part just to prove it could be done, though – especially if I want to have a flawlessly-looped, stabilized version, and not just a rough job of it.

    What, no stage where it was rendered as a series of tattoos?

    Is it a vintage Korg MS-10 or MS-20 synth below the box ?

    I think you can then say you’ve succeeded in failing at succeeding to fail at succeeding to fail life itself.

    Just because you can does not mean you should.
