Definitely. Easily the first, true internet meme, at least of the visual sort and what a dark, evil one it was.
So did this START as advertising, or was it actually a true meme that Discreet picked up on and reappropriated as advertising? I always assumed it was a marketing tool from the beginning.
it was just a character animation test for Max, which they liked enough to turn into a marketing tool
I remember this model and that damn animation sequence from playing with a pirated copy of 3D Studio. Then some fuckhole went and rendered it to that shit song. I hate that person.
1 million evil stars. +1 for Ally McBeal tag.
am i the only one who gets a little nauseous just looking at it?
LOLOLOLOL OMFG U HAVNT SEEN THIS? LET ME EMAILS U IT.
Five stars for legacy.
(also, that fifteen years later, this still looks better than Doctor Legua.)
The parody of this was the only memorable part of that X-Files guy's Millennium show.
That was the one great episode. And I suspect the character the dancing devil baby was tormenting was the inspiration for the "AND I'M FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES" guy on Reno911.
Beard time: there's a comic featuring the JSA ("DC 2000") where the 1940s characters managed to get ahold of a late 1990s laptop, thanks to the wonders of the time stream. Naturally they had no idea what it was; they dubbed it "the Informatio-Scope", and the dancing baby screensaver confused the hell out of them.

Wasn't Ally McBeal sponsored by the famous dot.com bubble breaker Boo and also one of the first shows to feature an internet (this) meme?
This could be the most turn of the century cultural marker, ever.

I give no credit to this horrible thing for what came after.
Don't tell anyone, but the guy who created this went on to become the webmaster & overall art director for Nine Inch Nails not long afterward.
