Watchmen On The Moon Vs. The Internet

Just when I thought I had seen it all, the internet goes and blows me away.

As part of the ongoing marketing campaign for Watchmen, the creators of the film have set up a website for the in-continuity newspaper, The New Frontiersman.

On this website, they have pictures from history, including the one above, of Dr. Manhattan taking the first photograph on the moon.

Believe it or not, someone decided to take the time to DEBUNK the photo.

Yes. DEBUNK THE FAKE PHOTO FEATURING THE FAKE CHARACTERS ON THE WEBSITE FOR THE FICTIONAL NEWSPAPER IN THE MOVIE.

This is a level of internet oroboros that I never thought I’d see.

Congrats, internet, once I thought I had you figured out. Today, you surprise me.
