    Remastered "Dancing Baby" gif

    Someone Remastered The Dancing Baby GIF In HD, And It's Even More Unnerving - Digg

    Whether or not you were alive and connected to the World Wide Web in the late 90s, you probably are (or should be) familiar with the era's pivotal internet moment: the video of an animated baby dancing to Blue Swede's "Hooked On A Feeling," AKA the Dancing Baby, AKA Baby Cha-Cha, AKA the Oogachaka Baby, AKA the stuff of nightmares.

    It was remarkable at the time for the (unnerving) realism achieved by the finely adjusted combination of data and physics models and animation — not to mention the absurdity of the music set to the video. In addition to circulating the internet and the news in 1996 and 1997, the seminal '90s TV show "Ally McBeal" made use of the video on several occasions. You could call it the first viral video, or the first meme, or the first moment we realized just how lawless the internet could be.

    Hmmm, that is a lot more creepy than it was before. Perhaps some things should not be seen in HD.

    It puts me in mind of this other story, though...

      Well, there was a higher-quality release of Manos: The Hands of Fate from the original film stock.

      Someone will make something HD regardless of whether or not they should make something HD.

        True, but jeez, that's a lot of effort to go through for an old meme. I guess if someone has the time and the means, they'll do whatever they feel like.
