Ever dream this man?



http://www.thisman.org

I haven't. But his face creeps me out anyway.

This Man" History
In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as THIS MAN.

From January 2006 until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Dehli, Moskow etc.

At the moment there is no ascertained relation or common trait among the people that have dreamed of seeing this man. Moreover, no living man has ever been recognized as resembling the man of the portrait by the people who have seen this man in their dreams.

I have a lot of recurring dreams, but never dream of him. Now I have a feeling I will and he looks more like what I'd see in a nightmare. Creepy smile.

I figure it's a hoax, too. I didn't get creeped out by the site or the story it presents, just by his face and then thinking what kind of nightmares he'd appear in tonight.

Though, thinking about it he kinda reminds me of Rowan Atkinson in Bean, with a smaller nose.

It's probably some psychological/subliminal picture that represents a conglomerate of different people. So the mind recognizes at least one part of the face, and the brain is being tricked into thinking that the whole face is recognized, thus the “Oh! I've seen that man in my dreams too!” …The face looks too funky and distorted to be an actual face. Especially the mouth–it's much too wide for the face. Last time I took a figure drawing class, they always said the mouth couldn't go past the halfway point in the eyes. So it's got to be a computer-generated face.

Oh gawd, they're onto me-

This would make for an interesting premise in a movie, no?

So, no, never dreamed of him. The face is pretty distinct and cartoonish at once, so I imagine I'd remember. Reminds me a bit of a cross between the patient from Operation boardgame and those magnetic face toys you see in convenience stores. Weirdly, one half of his face doesn't quite look like the other half.

enjoy the process,” he added. “That whether you succeed or fail, win or
lose, it will be fine. You pretend to be Zen. You adopt detachment, and
ironic humor, while secretly praying for a miracle.”

Haha, good one.
Hmm, I'm doing a presentation on viral marketing, I should mention this, yessss.

The idea did kinda creep me out. The gentleman's face is also pretty creepy. :o

Kinda…Reminds me of…someone…

Hay! I copied that huge monobrowed gentleman in to an animation program and showed no frames of Freddy Kruger. Hmmmph…I'm not wasting another second on this. |:3

If it is a viral add. Then it's a lousy one at that. This is the first time I hear of it.
Those were my two cents.

Oo! I learned something today!

No, I've never seen him either, but I probably will now that I'm aware of all this.

Yeah, I did a whois search on the site the other day and found out it was Italian from 2008. But that's as far as I could go since I couldn't find the identity of the owner.

The set-up was too neat and well designed in its simplicity to be genuine though.
