There’s no specific award for Best Disaggregator Of Vice-Presidential Features On The Internet, but if there were, @Limewater would win it after correctly breaking apart and identifying the following constituent parts of our Vice-Presidential Mashup yesterday:
Nelson Rockefeller - Hair, ears, & basic head shape
Charles W. Fairbanks - Mustache & beard
Walter Mondale - Eyes & eyebrows
Henry Wallace - Nose
John Nance Garner - Suit
@jrwofuga@slipperyp In my mind, I agree with your mind. I’m always curious to see if others used the same clues I did and how they went about figuring out their answers. Alas, I’m not going to post anything on account of others that are still working on it.
They have a Leader Price here in Guiana… - wasn’t certain
Congreso Nacional, Asuncion
For most, searching for “plaza” / “monument” / other broken partial translations helped. Here were specific clues I relied on
“Policia 50-1184” got me to something confirming Cartajena. “yellow” image search confirmed the plaza
this was the last one I got. I really thought it was somewhere in Brazil (the yellow and green trash at 1:25 put me on the wrong track). The firestone “Soinco” didn’t get me anywhere. I did a lot of searches on [rio|sao paulo] [park|monument] [conquistadore]. Finally I changed video quality to HD (not auto) and parsed “emaverde” on the “Aviso” sign at 1:21 and eventually “La Paz” (but didn’t immediately recognize the city name). Once I got to La Paz I was able to pinpoint the monument.
“Leader Price” (French company) sign - they are only in Guiana so that narrowed it down. I used some other stuff to roll the dice. Euro currency also helped
the flags at 1:58 confirmed Paraguay, “monument” “park” “canon” helped get to the spot
“Punto Caminito” was easily findable. I’ve been to Buenos Aires and think I might have even been here, but it rang some bells
@slipperyp Thanks for sharing. For the most part we looked at the same clues. I did a quick search on the Policia van but results were questionable. Instead I took a screen shot of the building and searched for that. It returned several instant hits. On the second one I immediately went with the sign by the statue. Searched for ‘emaverde monument’ and found the statue of the conquistador. For 3, I also went with both Leader Price and the fact that the signs had French, which narrowed it down to one single place. On 4 the flags were definitely the easy clue for the country. I searched for horse statues in Paraguay and found the right one. As for Punto Caminito, you’re absolutely correct, that was a dead giveaway.
It’s interesting how similar the methodologies are. There’s a certain train of logic that I think people simply have or don’t have. I know people who would take one look at this, shake their head, and walk away. While others embrace the challenge and go step by step to reach an end result. Finding the answers is fun and challenging, but the initial work in putting it together and choosing segments which give just enough clues is quite impressive. Another awesome job by @JasonToon.
