I think the original one belongs to a crazy physics professor, Walter Lewin and here it is
Photoshop Level Over 9000!

Thanks for sourcing this, this is like a whole different world of photoshop usage.
I'd love to see a tutorial on this because the lighting and color correction is just awesome.
Agreed. That's the part I have the most trouble with...
Personally, this isn't the kind of post I hope to see when I come to DN. It isn't actually informative (since you don't learn how to do any of this). It's really just kind of meme-level content presented without commentary. I'd rather see a tutorial, or an annotated version with a writeup on how the compositing was done (what tools, managing variant lighting, sourcing the images). Otherwise it's sort of just fluff.
yeah, but every once and a while fun is okay.
Honestly, I learned more watching this gif than I have all week from redundant blog and news posts. It's necessary to learn by observing those who are more skilled than you. In this case, the PS techniques used were very insightful.
Lots of people learn by watching. Just because you learned nothing from this doesn't mean no one else did.
My computer crashed just looking at that.
I am unworthy!
That was pretty impressive. Though it confirms one thing I learned many, many years ago while working in PS: just keep adding complexity and whatever you're working on will eventually look awesome.
This looks it took an entire day to make... and I'm talking only about the GIF
This is where Photoshop is for. Nothing else. Just playing with layer after layer, mask after mask.
Here's a link to the GIFV version so you can pause and rewind, &c: http://i.imgur.com/FjvzWqF.gifv
just wanna know how to.
Hilarious, I love this kind of content.
