Sept 2017 Part 3 - Antarctica: Weddell seals - POI - WOW


#29

I don’t think this is my “creative eyes” as @Mel_Nod says I have because this truly looks like a cat wearing a crown with a star in it. Could this be @cageycat - the queen of moderators - caught wearing her regal garb? There’s also a couple of animals to the left looking at her. Tag! You’re it, Cagey! :laughing:
(This is located almost halfway across the screen (not the map) when at Zoom -3 and the poly lined up with the bottom right of the instruction block on the left side.)

Just above, there’s a whole load of “faces” looking down on it.

@Helen (taxing my cat brain) I seem to remember something on film (a commercial?) where that “face” would come at the end and “pop into” a metallic surface. I want to say it was a car repair or car parts commercial? And there was sound effects, like a blacksmith striking metal, at the end (dum dum!) @Jim… help. It was between 1970 and now… lolol

Well, I found the cat logo… but you gotta watch it getting drawn first LOLOL https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlPZPbg6AAM So what commercial had a cat logo like that shows at the end, except popped out from behind metal? A panther?


#38

BTW, My great-uncle on my mother’s side had this unfortunate 1944 commercial career-- ick!


#39

So now I have to remember something that I saw somewhere within the past 44 years? Talk about taxing a brain (not a cat brain LOL)! But seriously, I do remember a commercial with the blacksmith’s hammer setting the seal, imprint, face or whatever it was. The sound is in my head, but as with people, I can’t seem to put a face on it! :thinking::rofl: Now this is something that is going to drive me :crazy_face: until I can remember what that commercial was about and for what company.
What it per chance an automobile commercial for the Mercury Cougar? :thinking:

Here’s a man peering around a tree. Looks like a pencil drawing.

Here a circus bear, complete with a fluffy collar who’s playing a guitar.

I was thinking Jaguar, but it could have been Mercury I guess.


#42

Possible… I’m still thinking about it… Hear that crackling sound - like something burning? The same sound my neighbor heard the other day when I was thinking out loud! :rofl:


#43

No it was (to me) more like a loud
strike strike
of a blacksmith’s hammer.

The 2 strikes were quite …striking!!

I told my friend that when I’m on my death bed, I will sit straight up just before I die and loudly announce the company name! But no one will know what I mean. hahaha


#44

Corny! I think I’m starting to rub off on you! :crazy_face: The crackling sound I mentioned was me thinking out loud. But in the commercial, I do remember very well the loud two strikes of the hammer. Thinking… thinking… thinking… now I smell something burning!


#45

Is this “peeping tom” Pan? (just to the right of the poly)

Cary Grant’s bedroom… eye.

Last one for a while (hours? minutes? :neutral_face::thinking:
Here’s a snow lizard that was standing on the edge when a piece of snow/ice broke off - and over he goes! His front leg is waving so frantically it looks like a blur! Poor thing.

And what we are looking for - a seal! This little guy is sticking his head up out of the snow. Lesson: Never fall asleep out in the open during a snow storm. :sleeping:

Okay, final one! A snow mouse. Notice the very short tail. That’s to keep it from freezing. (just outside and left of poly)

Final one…definitely the final one! Does this look like someone broke the ice, and then sprinkled smaller pieces of ice on top of it? :thinking:
