Histagram: History as It Happened on Instagram

Histagram

You know something’s really popular when people start making meant-to-go-viral galleries based on that certain something. In this case, it’s Instagram and fictional posts made by well-known figures. There was the Harry Potter Instagram gallery last week, and the most recent one that’s making the rounds is Histagram, which features well-known historical figures posting about key events.

The people and the events are real, but clearly the posts are not. The images are lifted from movies, random pictures, and edited images, which are put into proper context by their captions. Hit the break for a couple more.

Need a Roommate? Create a Poster and See Your Ad Go Viral

Roomate Mock Poster

Awesome roommates are hard to come by. Lauren Fahey recently moved to San Francisco and came upon that realization after apartment hunting for a while. With a lot of other “competitors” on the side, Lauren decided that the only way she was ever going to find a decent place to live in was to sell herself–as being one of the best roommates you could ever have.

Lauren then created a movie poster-like ad which featured testimonials about Lauren as a roommate from previous roommates. The ad’s backdrop featured Lauren with a friend (who could be you, if you’re looking for a roommate!) and an ironic naked man at the back, for no particular reason. She explains: “Apartment and roommate hunting was getting so tedious. It’s ridiculously competitive and I had to find a way to set myself apart.”

Lauren’s methods worked, since she now has herself a roommate. If you’re looking for one yourself, then take a cue from Lauren and see if it works for you, too.

Breaking Bad has officially come to an end. But don’t be too sad. Walter White lives on, in one way or another. The show’s much-talked about finale has inspired the release of so many Breaking Bad-related products, parodies, and even artwork.

Little Golden Books Inspired by Video Games, Part Two

Video Game Golden Books

If you grew up reading Little Golden Books, then you’ll instantly be able to tell that these modded covers by Joey Spiotto are unlike the regular books that you read back then.

Joey first came up with these covers a few months ago. His most recent series includes book covers inspired by Mass Effect, Red Dead Redemption and Half-Life. Hit the break to check out the other two.Continue Reading

Better Than I Imagined: If Disney Made ‘Game of Thrones’…

A lot of people were up in arms when news broke that Disney had acquired LucasFilm and was planning to make another Star Wars movie. I guess the decision made sense since the series was made to be relatively child-friendly. But can you imagine what would happen if HBO gave the reigns of Game of Thrones to Disney?

Some people did more than just imagine, and the result is this video–and it’s surprisingly good. But maybe that’s because I grew up with Disney and princesses always have a soft spot in my heart. Watch the clip and judge for yourself.

So Stupid But So Funny: Batman Replaces Characters in Classic Movie Scenes

Everybody knows Batman. I mean, who wouldn’t recognize him in his black mask with the furrowed brows and pointy ears? When Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy ended last year, fans cried buckets and wished there were more movies to come featuring the caped crusader. And come they will, since a reboot is already in the works.

Until that time comes, though, you’ll have to settle with the countless spoofs and parodies people are making based on the Dark Knight. This particular one we’ve got here shows Batman replacing a host of other characters in some of the most popular classic movies of all time, including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Home Alone.

Prom Night is Coming: If ‘Game of Thrones’ Were Set in a High School

Game of Thrones is currently one of the hottest shows on television. Or should I say coldest? George R. R. Martin’s compelling tale is transformed into impressive imagery interspersed with extreme violence in the series which hooks viewers almost instantly after they catch an episode or two.

Hoping to catch your attention and interest, though, is this creative parody that changes the setting of the hit franchise into a typical high school. Imagine GOT mixed with teen angst and prom night, and you’ve got School of Thrones in a nutshell. Check it out!
