Evolution of a Photoshop – Space Jam Edition

Last week I was browsing Twitter (as I often do) when someone tweeted about their love of Space Jam and how no movie collection was complete with out it. She then mentioned that she didn’t own it and that it was no wonder why she was single.   For me the best part about Space Jam was that it lead the Harvard Sports Analysis Collective to compile this box score from the final game. But I’m weird like that.   Now, I thought to my self, “Self (cause that’s what I call my self), she’s looking at this all wrong. It’s like Cinderella. She needs to find that person that already HAS Space Jam.”   Which lead me to look for images from Cinderella of the prince putting on the glass slipper so that I could Photoshop Space Jam over the slipper. I didn’t find any that I was happy with, but it did lead me to finding another image which, in turn, lead to...

No lame, sparkly vampires in Traced either.   I should take this opportunity to let everyone know there’s a bit of exaggeration in my “picture review”. I have no idea if it’s true.
