When it seems like the whole world is full of idiots,
maybe your standards are a bit high.

Oh-kay -- I'd say this isn't quite ready for primetime (as it were). Looks like they take a closed captioning feed as the text source, then map hits in that to the "accompanying" video scene. Which seems pretty clever. What I instantly notice, though, is that the video & text aren't exactly accurately sync'd. This is especially entertaining when coming back out of commericials.

My personal favourite (so far): Looking for Sawyer, the hunky-but-self-hating-sleeze from Lost, I get this ( result. Indeed, the episode "Whatever the Case May Be" (the 4th result) is a good match, but the Ben Gay image really isn't. :-)

Great article over at Ars about this... I never would have expected to see this come this far.
