If you’re going to recreate a massively famous painting in live action, you might as well do it right.

Well, Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam” — that one painted on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel — is pretty much as daunting a challenge as you could get.

These Redditors certainly did it proud, though:

That was image posted in the r/pics sub on Tuesday. It’s since been upvoted over 94,000 times.

The guy who shared it (he’s the one on the left in the image) took to the comments to answer a few questions, too.

Retro logos for modern internet companies

What would the internet look like in 1975? Can you picture scrolling through Instagram in 1984, or tweeting in 1991? 

Graphic designer Future Punk reimagined sites like Reddit, Amazon, and SoundCloud as retro logos from the 1970s to the mid-1990s. Complete with classic title music and animations that look like they’re straight off your grandma’s favorite VHS tape, Future Punk’s logos will bring you back a few decades.

Redditors commented on the video, noting that it felt like “being a kid watching late night shows” and that the nostalgic vibes were comforting. The logos even went viral on Tumblr

Considering flare jeans and fanny packs are back in style, the video fits right in with today’s trends.

Millie Bobby Brown, 14, says Drake, 31, texts her boy advice

Image: getty images

Apparently Drake gives Millie Bobby Brown boy advice.

During a red carpet interview for the Emmys, the 14-year-old Stranger Things star told Access that she and Drake have gotten close since first meeting in Australia. 

“We just texted each other the other day and he was like, ‘I miss you so much’ and I was like, ‘I miss you more!” Brown gushed.

She admitted that Drake helps her navigate the terrifying world of dating teen boys, but wouldn’t reveal any details.

“You know, that stays in the text messages,” she laughed. 

Despite Brown’s affection for her 31-year-old BFF, Some were put off by their friendship, considering Drake’s alleged girlfriend turned 18 just this year. 

Calling him a “great friend and a great role model,” Brown said she plans to see Drake when he performs in Atlanta. 

“He’s great, he’s wonderful, I love him,” she said.

Here's a new font that will help you fudge your next school paper

Remember how you used to adjust the margins on your school papers so you could write a little bit less? If you’re still in school, remember how you still do that? Now, at long last, there’s a font that will do all the cheating for you: Times Newer Roman.

According to its creator, the digital agency MSCHF, the typeface “kinda looks like Times New Roman, except each character is 5 to 10 per cent wider.” This means, ostensibly, that you can turn in a paper in Times Newer Roman without it being terribly obvious that you’ve downloaded a full new font instead of writing 200 more words.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison from the website. Honestly, the difference is incredibly subtle.

Times Newer Roman” data-credit-provider=”custom type” src=”https://i.amz.mshcdn.com/4qh6vkfStG3el1_B5cd9pNninnQ=/fit-in/1200×9600/https%3A%2F%2Fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2Fuploads%2Fcard%2Fimage%2F847814%2Fd2d6f994-7a9e-4eff-bcfa-0e2e4cddbb92.png” alt=”A little extra length.” data-fragment=”m!fd6a” data-image=”https://i.amz.mshcdn.com/e1zM8jz8IOJdpaRVukQbqsSN9ZY=/https%3A%2F%2Fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2Fuploads%2Fcard%2Fimage%2F847814%2Fd2d6f994-7a9e-4eff-bcfa-0e2e4cddbb92.png” data-micro=”1″>

As with any shortcut, though, there is one major caveat. You’ll only be able to use the font on papers that you either print or save to PDF. As Lifehacker points out, if you submit the document in Word, the font will only register if it’s also downloaded to your instructor’s computer. Unless they’re also cheating on their term paper (if it’s a TA, maybe they are!), this will probably pose an issue.

Anyway, we should probably say that we don’t condone font-fudging of any kind. We’re just letting you know this exists.

This Jeff Goldblum shower curtain will take your bathroom to the next level

The last thing the internet needs is to get any thirstier for Jeff Goldblum. But isn’t it an intriguing thought to have him watch you shower?

Twitter user @notstevely recently posted an excellent reveal video of a truly beautiful shower curtain with Jeff Goldblum’s face on it. 

If you thought your bathroom decor was complete without a Goldblum shower curtain, think again.

The tweet got a lot of attention fast, because Goldblum is still the internet’s number one. Currently the video has over 11,000 retweets and 800,000 views. And obviously, people took the opportunity to post sweet Goldblum gifs. 

Seriously though, did you get this at Bed, Bath and Beyond-Belief-Hot?

Chrissy Teigen graces the internet with another awards show meme

Chrissy Teigen, once again, is a whole mood. 

Colin Jost and Michael Che’s painfully unfunny opening monologue drew scattered applause and awkward laughs. 

In response to a particularly terrible joke, Chrissy shrunk away from the camera and cringed into her seat when the camera panned to her and her husband John Legend.

The queen of the internet did it again, upstaging the lackluster monologue by perfectly conveying everything we all felt throughout the underwhelming rant. 

Emmys viewers agreed with every face she made. 

Chrissy’s previous awards show faces have become the go-to reaction gif for painfully awkward situations. 

When will we get an awards show dedicated to her priceless reactions?

Comedian trolls the Emmys red carpet with a Getty Images purse

Here’s one way to land a good photo. 

Comedian Emily Heller showed up to the Emmys red carpet on Monday dressed in a sequined geometric gown, signature glasses, and curly hair piled in an updo. She topped off the look with a grey clutch emblazoned with the Getty Images logo.

“You know who was really excited to take pictures of this purse?” Heller tweeted. “@gettyimages. You know who wasn’t? Every other photographer there.” 

In addition to going viral, we have to give Heller props for bringing a purse that can actually hold something more than a sliver of an iPhone. What did she bring to the red carpet? A book in case she gets bored? A spare set of sensible shoes to change into once the photo ops are over? The secrets of the universe itself? 

Here’s a close-up of the clutch.

Heller hasn’t explained why she chose that bag, but she could be poking fun at when people post photos with Getty’s watermark. 

She joked that she had to arrive early so that she’d get in photos. 

And admitted that it was difficult to keep the purse a surprise. 

It definitely got her noticed!

Dad attempts a nice – but absurdly unsuccessful – panoramic photo of his daughter

Dads and technology don’t always mix.

Just ask Simran, a 21-year-old Twitter user whose father recently tried to show off his photo skills using his iPhone X’s panoramic feature, but failed miserably.

On Saturday, Simran tweeted two panoramic photographs her dad took of her on their family vacation. While the panoramic feature is most often used to capture especially wide landscape shots, Simran’s Hip Dad doesn’t play by the rules.

“My dad told me to stand by the apples because he said he discovered a new way to take pano pics vertically. I agreed to it and this was the result,” Simran told Mashable via Twitter.

“My dad trying to take panoramics of me. I’m mad asf,” Simran tweeted alongside two photos of herself looking like an optical illusion.

“When he saw them he said ‘they look great’ and then I saw them and completely lost it. I mean, are you kidding me? I look like an Alien,” she said, noting that several people on Twitter have compared her to Kanye West and Lil Pump in their music video for “I Love It.”

To see how truly distorted the shots were, here’s what Simran looks like through a regular lens.

Nice try, dad, but in the future, leave the fancy photo tricks to the pros.

Watch this car wash employee expertly escape getting caught between two vehicles

The first day at a new job is bound to have its learning curves, but most don’t include almost being smushed between two cars.

Twitter user @0ctobersVeryOwn shared a startling video of a first day working at a car wash gone awry, and I think you can already sense where this is going. 

In the clip, an employee steps between two cars upon realizing that they’re about to collide, but ends up almost trapped in between as they roll backwards through the facility.

Thankfully, the end of the video reveals that the employee was able to free himself from between the two cars just in the knick of time. 

Hopefully the rest of his first day had fewer terrifying experiences.
