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. :-)

For the curious, there are other goofy versions of Google that you can use. Click "Language Tools" on the right side of the homepage, and scroll down to the list at the bottom of the page.
