The World of Tomorrow (If The Internet Disappeared Today)

Wed design Glasgow Owner of Contact MultimediaThankfully someone thought about this and ran a little competition to find out what people would come up with.

Her’e the link to the site http://www.cracked.com/photoshop_90_the-world-tomorrow-if-internet-disappeared-today/

For those who have no idea what the winner got it for, this is a prank that has been going on for a while now where it’s a bit like the ring a door bell and run away stuff when you were a kid.

Basically this is the same idea using video and the internet, although you easily get caught since it’s your email address -DOH! It starts of with something that would be relevant to the person watching it, then out of nowhere Rick Astley shows up singing his song – you’ve just been Rick Rolled!

If you still can’t get your head around it here’s a link to a blog dedicated to it and one of the better videos (there many good ones on you tube) http://www.yougotrickrolled.com/vids.php

I really like some of the other interpretations on the site, I wonder what the world would have been like if the internet never exsisted at all, guess we’ll never get to know – long live the internet (or as my flat mate likes to call it the tinterweb)!
