PHOTOSHOP THREAD: Thanks, M.A. Larson!

Post by Wylie (?) » Fri Feb 01, 2013 6:54 am

There might be enough of these for a thread, so I'll throw one up and see if it sticks. (Edit: The previous sentence turns out to be the largest understatement since Noah's weather forecast said "isolated showers.")

You know the scene in every late-night commercial that shows people completely unable to cope with difficult concepts like cooking spaghetti or sitting down with a bowl of Cheetos, usually in ominous black-and-white? Well, people have been turning those into .gifs with the caption at the end, "THANKS, OBAMA" - the joke (which I'm now way over-explaining in the hopes that you won't notice that I'm terrible at making gifs and don't have one of my own to post) being that all of these things are Obama's fault somehow.

Well, we have a new scapegoat: M.A. Larson. Let's blame him for Alicorn Twilight, Alicorn Big Macintosh, Alicorn Scootaloo (still can't fly), you name it!

There's already a few submissions, because you guys are crazy fast and awesome! :awesomedash:

Had to do this. I can't believe it turned out as well as it did, frankly.

(M.A. Larson, if you get linked here: I believe in you, buddy. All this is with much love for your work.)

This is /mlp/ and ponychan's exact reaction. Now someone ponify this by putting Twilycorn on the screen. It'd be hilarious if a compilation of various maze reactions were ponified and made into one long video.

There's a subreddit devoted to gifs of those silly commercial bits so if you're looking for some ideas it might be a good place to check.

edit: Welp here's my contribution:

(Also I'm with Wylie, Larson has my full support on this and I'm looking forward to whatever he's got in store for us.)

Here's a couple albums full of those infomercial .gifs- most of the good ones have already been used, but I'm sure you guys can come up with other stuff.

edit: welp, I'm an idiot. Didn't notice that cathead had already linked them. Oh well. :-/

It's not just ponies who worship Princesses

Image

These ants have been trained to design and build an igloo using tiny blocks of ice.

Once the Igloo is complete, they go inside to praise the princess.

We'll come back to the Princesses later, until then, thanks, M. A. Larson.

Does this mean M.A. Larson's creation is going to cause his own demise? :nngh:

RIP M.A. Larson: murdered by a magical flying purple unicorn.

Your choice on whether you think it was intentional or not. :gotcha:

There's so much comedy gold in this thread that it may as well be Fort Knox. I'd contribute, but I have no ideas.

Well, this forum has been around for about two years. But judging by the rate at which the photoshopping spread, I predict the entire site will be nothing but pony photoshop contests by mid-March.

Also, Larson should totally join the site incognito and speculate with the rest of us, while permanently locking his expression like this. :gotcha:

Now, let's rejoin the ants, and see how they're settling into their worship.

A change has taken place. The igloo appears to have melted. Perhaps a brand new Princess left up the sun for too long.

M. A. Larson, M.A. Larson, what hast thou done?

Fortunately, ants are an excellent drink garnish.

Bless you M.A. Larson,

Blarson.
