Things We Saw Today: What the Hecking Heck Is Going On in This GIF?

The Verge‘s James Vincent found the most perfect slapstick GIF in the world, and performed an admirable job breaking it down and analyzing it. You definitely need to check out his play-by-play. There’s just so much going on!

  • Did you, like the rest of the world, wonder why the hecking heck the Joker had that weird “Damaged” tattoo on his forehead? Suicide Squad director David Ayer explains. (via Birth.Movies.Death)
  • Mr. Robot fans: do you think this hint from Telltale and tweet from Night School Games could be pointing to a possible video game adaptation? (via Develop)

Speaking of analyzing things, Dorkly took a look at Batfleck Bruce Wayne’s Justice League recruitment techniques and have found them… uh, wanting, let’s say. (via Laughing Squid)

  • If you’re like us and can’t get enough of behind-the-scenes director commentary, then this upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-Rey (still gonna make it happen) is exactly what you need. It’s got commentary from J.J. Abrams himself. (via Entertainment Weekly)
  • President Obama just released his last and final Summer Playlist, which features artists like Courtney Barnett, Fiona Apple, Chance the Rapper, Nina Simone, and D’Angelo. That’s great and all, but I thought we decided the format was artist, hyphen, then title. What’s up, Mr. President? (via Pitchfork)

What’d you see today, friend?
