This fun series of images depicts retro cartoon characters from games like Donkey Kong, Yoshi Island and Street Fighter embedded into actual photographs. The series is quite well done and the graphics are well integrated into the shots of real life scenery.

Implications - The trend of photoshopping and integrating a fantasy life into society is signalling towards the development of the virtual world. The increase of interest in the virtual world has created a shift in the ability for targets to project their fantasies. Companies can take the advantage of alternate universes and bring it into their development of gaming. By making more realistic fantasy worlds, consumers will feel that desired connection.
