ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
These fake eyeball stickers look like they'd come in handy, but The Museum of Hoaxes is having a hard time tracking down a place that actually sells them. They look easy enough to make yourself, though. Link
But how do you know if you’ve put them on right?
non-transplant quality cadaver eyes look the best
Wow, the comment review symbol to the right of each comment is wonderfully appropriate.
The guy in the picture looks like a psychopath, but maybe that’s not the stickers fault. The kind of person who would think this is a good idea, probably is more likely to look a bit …unbalanced.
hmmm… but this doesn’t address the snoring.
Wow. That reminds me of a photo I took at Burning Man two years ago:
Still freaks me out.
ZatÃ´ichi(2003 ver) anyone?
I imagine these would more appropriate (!) to a college/university lecture hall than an office environment.
Sad but true.
Reminds me of the time I cut a ping pong ball in half and poked some holes in the “pupil” then wore them to look more like Homer Simpson. Not comfortable. But my costume one first prize. Doh!
My daughter got some of these in a Captain Jack Sparrow disguise kit we picked up at big lots.
Disney strikes again.
In early zombie movies they’d just paint eyes on the actor’s eyelids.
Jack Sparrow did it (I always thought this was the best thing about this movie).
I believe these are from an old ChindÅgu book. However I can’t remember which one.
Calvin did it.
I’m guessing that the idea is that you could take a nap at your desk without your nosy coworkers suspecting, but the reality would probably be that they figure out really quickly that they’re stickers on your eyelids, but they won’t bug you about napping because now you’re the weirdo who puts stickers on your eyelids.
Where were these when I was going to Catholic High School in the 60′s?
Simpsons did it! Simpsons did it!
They look pretty creepy to me.
They’re in that new movie Strange Wilderness (but they’re tattoos rather than stickers). Life imitating art–again.
Finally, I NEED these things. I was at a lunch seminar at work yesterday, and I almost fell asleep. This is a dream come true for slackers all over the world!
“Just place the stickers over your closed eyes, and no one will be the wiser.”
Except for the cold, lifeless, unblinking stare these give the impression of. The picture of that guy creeps me out.
Even the lady in the photos looks creeped out. Perhaps creepy-eye-stickers 2.0 should employ googly eye technology.
jeffjonez@7: one could easily achieve that googly eye effect with a table tennis ball and a magic marker. Unfortunately I don’t live in East Texas so I can’t patent that and use it as a business plan.
Maybe shaving the brow could somehow redirect the attention of coworkers and bosses.
But seriously (!), the design could be modified to show a little eyelid.
hmm, but what about those of us with glowing red irises?
Don’t bother with stickers; they start to curl up and could come off at an inopportune moment.
