Tumblr favorite #1799: Can you solve the mystery of the sexy hex dump?

Tumblr favorite #1798: Laser fucked
Tumblr favorite #1800: Autofuck!

Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Γ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 029 – Sexy Hex Dump.” I’m sure Bacchus did his best.

This simple animated .gif shows just a few frames from a movie or video in which we can see an oldfashioned hexadecimal dump scrolling by on the left side of a monochrome monitor as a simple graphic of a naked woman builds from top to bottom on the right side of the screen. The monitor is in a dark room on a metal rack while a large fan spins nearby.

All appearances of the .gif on the internet that I was able to locate were on Tumblr, and they all source to this post on the 2Cool 4Internet Tumblr. Sadly there are no tags or other attributions offered, and I was unable to search out the source by any other means. I imagine it to be a few frames from a movie — it has that “gee whiz looks good on the screen but why would anybody actually build an interface that actually did that” appearance so common when Hollywood shows computing on-screen — but that’s really just a wild guess.

    • Now that you mention that, that seems like a good conjecture too, to the point of dimly triggering a possible recollection.

      I have a copy of Looker sitting around somewhere, I think. If I can find it and the time, I’ll check.
