Interesting subway scene

The folks who brought you Frozen Grand Central now bring you Human Mirror. These ideas are great and they do a good job with them. Fun stuff!

There goes any hope of achieving individuality.

But is Eszter Hargittai or Hargittai Ezster the mirror in your case?


Eszter Hargittai 07.20.08 at 6:09 pm

“zs” is a whole other letter in Hungarian with a completely different pronounciation so that doesn’t work, I’m afraid. (Wow, never thought posting this video would result in a discussion of Hungarian.:)

Typo – it should have been Hargittai Eszter


Eszter Hargittai 07.20.08 at 6:36 pm

Oh, I thought you were inverting the sz precisely for the purposes of mirroring. Yeah, in Hungary it would say Hargittai Eszter, but I’m writing all this in the U.S. so I’ll keep it as EH.

Engels, thanks, that’s cute. Maybe instead of disemvoweling, this is what we should do to troll comments.:)

This really made me smile. Thanks!

Cute. Not nearly as cheeky and subversive as their recent AF shirtless shopping gig… or some of their really amazing (and much more morally-complicated) early work:

Am I the only one who noticed that all of the performers are white, but most of the people subjected to the performance were not? Is this presidential race getting to me? Did I just use the word “race” in a context other than ethnicity?

Why can’t I stop asking questions?

Thanks, Mike, that’s excellent!
