Apparently he's ditched the hat, but not the beard: http://www.flickr.com/photos/eichin/

I wish he'd gone for a bowler instead of fedora.

I'm convinced Yahtzee Croshaw's sense of fashion is a parody of this man.

WHY THE FUCK IS THERE FOOTAGE OF E.T. IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS?

Oh, my God, it must force its victims to play it!

This virus is everything the report says it is.

Just out of curiosity.. but where? I figured this was a dupe but I couldn't find it, and still can't find it.

I should stop being a dupe fairy I guess. The tags are so fucked up that it's easy to post dupes.

I like how this whole "crisis" was the results of the programmer making a dumb mistake while experimenting with something.

did you not 5 star this because it had no cats?

wtf japan
It came to MIT in the middle of the night. The students were safe; their computers were not.

Also, how can one know when one has exactly the correct amount of melodrama?

Hey, it's Torgo from MANOS: The Hands of Fate.

H-NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!
Xenocide
....MAYBE.

And it was INSIDIOUS. Sent by a DARK GENIUS.

The students were safe....FOR NOW.

Also, it came in THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

Too bad those students didn't have a Prime Computer. Then they could have teleported the virus right into the heart of an exploding supernova while a young Sarah Jane Smith gave them a backrub.

The clips of E.T. are weird, but so are the clips of the movie Virus, which I thought was kind of obscure.

Shit, where to begin? We start with the hat/beard guy who I am now convinced exists on every college campus.

Then horror trailer narration, Atari E.T., "Virus" movie footage I'm not sure could be considered Fair Use, pornstache, ancient PCs.

Between this and danooct1's YouTube channel I'm declaring it "Old Computer Virus Month" in my head.
