I would buy something from them just for being that clever.
They took this from an art piece that did lego men in different scenarios. This was one of them.
I remember that artist... Do you have the link to the original by chance?
I will buy the artist just for being that clever
I think that was made illegal a while ago
Everyone has a price.
I'm buying you for a dollar!
Eh, I would have just offered exposure.
"If you do this thing for me for free, I'll tell all of my friends to check you out. That exposure alone is priceless. Between my YouTube channel and my SoundCloud profile, that's like ten people!"
"I'll buy that for a dollar!"
It's really only changed names. We call it hiring people and expecting them to work overtime without extra pay.
Ahh yes, “Salaried, exempt”
You mean "exposure", right?
I would like to buy YOU for being so clever.
They aren't lego figures.
I love this picture!!! I want it blown up in my house and put in my living room. I think it is the coolest thing. Every time I see it, it gives me... I'm not even sure how to explain it but, it just makes me happy. So innocent, clever, and it just has such a story. Like I said I have a hard time putting it into words but when I look at this picture, it slows shit down for me and puts the stresses of life on pause, quiets them down for a peaceful moment and I just smile and think about different details of it. I even think about it if I get stressed at work, or angry, or if I am having a rough day, it pops into my head and I just calm down. It is the weirdest thing that this silly picture has such an effect on me. Thank you for linking it.
I would want nothing more than for the original artist to see this comment, so they could die 100% fulfilled. 😊
I guess you could say a picture is worth a thousand words.
To me it's such a clever reversal of scale. It's like reverse tilt-shift where the figures look human but then it's juxtaposed by the grapes which are normal sized but look gigantic.
Here's an imgur gallery of Tatsuya Tanaka's work.
Edit: maybe some are actually by Pierre Javelle and Akiko Ida ?
Holy fuck I wish I had a tenth of this persons talent and creativity
Thanks for posting this - my husband loves this type of stuff and he needs a boost today. Much appreciated. 👏🏼
Here's a link to the artist who did the original.. As someone said below they don't work with lego, but their art is wonderful none the less. I remember their work from years ago. This was always one of my favorite pieces (gore warning) - closeup 1, closeup 2, closeup 3.
Here's an article with a neat rundown of more from the artist.
That town really likes Starbucks
Not sure if it's the same artist, but there's an artist called Slinkachu who creates similar scenes using miniature figures
I'm pretty sure it was an artist who made stuff with micro character models, they were pumping up greeny yellow coloured raisins into green grapes.
yup, had nothing to do with lego
Not lego men, more like model railway people
Is there a sub for this kind of thing?
It's a small business, they need our support.
when i was in school there was this kid who didnt' know that raisins are dried grapes. we tried to tell him but he thought we were trolling.
TIL raisins are dried grapes.
Prunes are dried plums.
The only reason I know this is because my native Dutch doesn't have a word for prunes and just calls them dried plums.
I always thought prunes were dried dates
The quirks don't end there. 'Un raisin' is for a bunch of grapes. The French treat it like we do with a raspberry or blackberry.
Tastes very strange.
I only found out some years ago too.. There must be more like us!
Pickles are pickled cucumbers.
Haha. Nice try, Karen.
Dude, this just blew my mind
Happy cake day
They should also show how they get those wrinkly testicles behind them into a nutsack.
That’s a whole other kind of pump
You know, just before you're born, your doctor have to buy the balls from a market and install it for you.
In the old times, they have to pick it from a plant but it was fresher so older man can nut longer.
Remember when you have a boy on the way, tell your doctor to pick the better pair.
I'm going too deep into the rabbit hole.
I don't think the rabbit is going to thank you for that, regardless of freshness.
Do they also de-brine pickles to make cucumbers?
I thought pickles were made from soaking in vinegar, not brine. Don't get me wrong, I could be mistaken, that's just what I thought the process was.
Pickles are made with brine, but its usually a brine that includes vinegar. Long-term brines for meat are less likely to be cinegar-based because the acid can break down the proteins or begin cooking the meat in a way you dont want, but thats not really a concern with cucumbers. Quick brines are especially likely to have vinegar in them because it is quicker to infiltrate the vegetable.
It also deoends what kind of pickle you are making (e.g., dill, bread and butter, etc.)... if you buy a jar of dill clausen pickles and taste the brine they are in it will mostly taste like salty, dilly water. But some kinds and a lot of faster-made ones will often have vinegar in them.
Dilly water is also used to make Budweiser. Well, just the dillies only. They water them down for Bud Light.
You can make them either way.
Are brined ones common? I think I've only ever had pickles from the store and they all seemed to use vinegar. Have I had brined ones and just don't know it?
Yes! Though many (most?) commercially-available pickles are "quick pickles" (made using vinegar), pickled cucumbers are traditionally made by creating a brine (no acid) and allowing the mixture to ferment, thus creating its own vinegar. It's a slower process, though.
brines a generic term and can contain vinegar or can not contain vinegar, Some pickles are naturally fermented and the bacteria naturally present produce the acid, some have it added in the form of vinegar. EVen the ones with vinegar have lots of salt as well which is why they call it brine.
wait a second, are raisins dehydrated grapes!?!
Technically, raisins are grape jerky.
Correction: Grape flavored jerky!
The thought of grape flavored jerky almost made me pass out in disgust
But then you realized its a raisin?
Now I'm curious what you thought raisins were
Probably a different fruit alltogether.
Let's not be so quick to judge. We can all be ignant at times. I used to think coleslaw is a vegetable. My girlfriend told me it's just cabbage. Because I was an idiot who didn't want to admit fault, I said something royally retarded like, "Well, here you may make it with cabbage but where I come from we make it with actual coleslaws." There was no internet in those days so I got away with it, I think.
What is a...potato?
I was like 30 before I learned the pickles are pickled cucumbers, and not some other vegetable that we use solely for pickling.
To be fair, there are fruiting trees called Raisin Trees, e.g. Hovenia dulcis.
You think that's wild, wait to I you hear about plums and prunes, and cucumbers and pickles.
I find it quite funny that in English, you designate the dehydrated fruits with the French term for fresh fruits!
In French raisins = grapes and prunes = plums :D
*edited to clarify confusion
Not strange at all when. You consider that the French ruled the British for a while and we got a lot of words, especially for food from them as the English servents we're feeding their French masters. It's why we raise cows, chickens, and pigs but eat beef, poultry, and pork, and we hunt deer but eat venison.
Wait. Prunes are dehydrated plums?! I'm 27. I love to cook. How did I not know this?
Don't bring up Santa Claus because they might take of the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy as well.
Yes. you cut the vine before you pick the grapes, and eventually the vine will suck the water out of the grapes, leaving you with raisins, which you then pick.
Oh so that's how they get dried. TIL
That doesn’t sound right but I don’t know enough about raisin production to dispute it. So, have an upvote.
Thanks for the link. I assumed mechanical dehydration would have been the process.
Wait until you see where a pineapple comes from
It’s a rock fact!
Just watched that entire series with my fiancée - was wondering if it'd show up in the comments!
Over the Garden Wall for anyone wondering (its wonderful) and its on Hulu right now. I just saw it last week myself.
“Did you know that if you soak a raisin in grape juice, it turns into a grape?!”
They did surgery on a grape
*They did inflation on a grape
I scrolled down 100% expecting this shitstorm of a meme.
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be impressed that I guessed correctly or disappointed that I did
I came here looking for this. The meme is so bad its funny.
That’s the point of the meme. It’s not supposed to actually be funny. It’s satire.
What a fucking zoomer meme.
Holy fuck guys what even is reddit anymore this shit has to stop
We are getting old and so is the internet.
Did it survive?
This reminds me of the work by Eugene Lagana: (https://www.eugenelagana.com/). Pretty cool!
Thank you for sharing this link!!!
You're welcome! I saw the artist's work at a recent exhibit, and I really enjoyed it. Some of his pieces are very clever!
But where do they do surgery on them?
They did surgery on a grape
They did surgery on a Grape !
They did surgery on a grape
It looks like surgery
They did surgery on a grape
This image gave me the craziest rabbit hole thought. There should be a movie called InGraption, which is a cross between Inception and the Willy Wonka scene where violet gets bigger. Each time you go deeper into the mind you grow larger and become more purple; until the last jump is you as a giant grape.
I’m not even high...
I would totally love to set this up at a party of some kind but i have a feeling those lego people will end up in sex positions by the end of the night...
Make Raisins Grape Again.
They did surgery on a grape
That's a rock fact!
They did surgery on a grape.
They are doing surgery on a grape
I knew there was a raisin why I liked grapes so much
It's raisin, then.
My father worked in a grape factory for 32 years.
Something something surgery grape whatever
WHAT IN GRAPE INFLATION
Yeah if you could just go ahead and rehydrate those raisins that would be graaaapes.
So this is why grapes are expensive...inflation
Why wouldnt they call it the "raisin inflation station"?!
Info-graphic of cultivation of Grapes
I can only say Holy grapes!
That is a clever advertising. I would definitely buy from them.
Is this reverse engineering?
ugh - It's only a matter of time before someone steals this, replaces the Lego guys with a stupid Elf on the shelf, and posts it all over Facebook.
They did surgery ON A GRAPE.
Welp TIL indeed
Would be a great ad for the LEGO movie 2
That’s not an ergonomically friendly lifting position. That LEGO will have all sorts of back problems.
