Fab Freddie

I found another artist working in a remix/mashup vein, going by the handle Stuff_by_Mark:

He may have thought this Freddy/Freddie mashup was stupid, but I thought I might be able to outdo him:

The first thing I thought of when I saw the image was Right Said Fred, but I thought I needed to take it a step further. Some time ago, Zach Whalen did an experiment with the Ancestry/My Heritage AI thing that makes creepy animations out of photos of your deceased relatives, only he fed it images from a comic book. I guess they changed their standards, because when I tried it with this image it said:

Cropping in didn’t help, but applying a Gaussian blur did. So I took their animation and stuck it on top of the original with iMovie’s Picture in a Picture function, the stuck the “I’m too sexy for my shirt” sound clip underneath. And so I made a tragedy from a farce. Or something.

  1. I’ve had Dr. Whalen for two semesters now and he loves showing off his monster comics! And the image of Freddie Mercury’s head on Freddy Kreuger’s body (especially since it’s moving) is a little horrifying. But that’s okay because the song just makes me want to bust out laughing! I love it! “Tragedy from a farce,” indeed!
