NIN The Great BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH

    Newer Older

    Amy nailed this one by accident. I had to get it up here because I don't think I've ever noticed this before.

    From Wired Interview - "We purposefully put one frame of the Blue Screen of Death in this collage of static that comes up at the end of 'Great Destroyer,' and right away people caught it," - Trent Reznor

    recluse cut loose, aarontait, and 101 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      just so everyone is aware... that is a screen that is part of the video footage... it's supposed to be there... it's not "embarrassing" because nothing really crashed...

      I linked this up when it was making the rounds on Digg recently, but didn't know who took the original until the post on The NIN Hotline came out. I've since added attribution and a follow-up post.

      Thanks for sharing the awesome photo. The Nine Inch Fails caption that was added to it was funny, but the photo itself is the heart of the meme. Great shot!

      Always amazing to see how many people don't read the image description. It was intentional, people!

      The number of people here who don't get that this was intentional amuses me. Seriously, even if Trent hadn't said that it was intentional, (a) he hates Windows with a passion, and (b) he's been known to do things like this in the past (the Year Zero ARG, anyone?).

      Wow... I can only imagine Trent's reaction after that happened. He must have been PISSED!
      Must have been another "PRESS THE FUCKING BUTTON!" night for Trent....

      You stupid people, it was a part of act. There is a full picture somewhere with huge NIN logo on the left of this bullshit. It's easy to crop a photo and make it look like something else. Nine Inch Nails never fails ;)
