1. From sidsen

Slightly hard core question straight for the dedicated and the fan boys. The picture is a fan boy creation tribute to a particular character (apparently the third most popular one in its line, and the unofficial sad and depressed mascot of the group), which in turn (that is the particular character the fan boy tribute is a tribute to) was created as a parody/tribute nod to another frog from a really famous (but annoying) game.

Give me the famous (annoying) game.

2. Raghuvansh has meticulously put together this video question (he has done the video edits too!)

Video (A) shows X (easy!) talking about a supposedly major turning point (Y) in his career in an “interview” on the show Z. Clips from Y are interspersed. The video has been edited heavily to avoid making the answer too obvious.

Connect the whole setup to the gentleman in the image (B).

A.

B.

The connection is that Waltz was parodying Trololo which is supposed to be the Russian Rickroll.

  1. 1. The snow sculpture is a tribute to Fisty, from World of goo, said to “not” shoot out coloured balls from his mouth like the frog in the game – “Zuma”

    2. X is Christopher Waltz, Y is Der Humpink, and Z is Jimmy Kimmel live, the connection to Rick Astley (aka mr Rick Roll) is the starting of the Der Humpink video which starts of with the trololo impersonation, a russian version of Rick Roll

    3. Ton Roosendaal, producer of Big Buck Bunny

    1. Nintendo World of Goo. Fisty Frog.

    The tribute is to the game Zuma, by Popcap games.

    ———————————
    2. That’s Colonel Hans Landa :P
    Christoph Waltz (X) , Der Humpink being the movie (Y). This sketch was shown in Jimmy Kimmel’s Oscars special show. (Z) It was borrowed from a BBC documentary about Waltz.

    The video clip of waltz shows him lipsynching to the trolololo/vocaliz music, which is possibly the only geeky connect here.

    I’d say the connect is Trolololo. ( Edward Khil, Russian rickroll meme )

    3. Ton Roosendaal, of the Blender Foundation.
    The character is possibly Big buck bunny.

    Can’t see video on phone and no access to a comp for a while so answering just 1 and 3 right now.

    1. The fanboy snow frog is Fisty from the popular ‘World of Goo’. According to the sign painter’s (the second most popular character, after the goo balls themselves) introduction to Fisty, Fisty “swore he would never be like those tadpoles that grow up and shoot coloured gems out of their mouths”.

    This is a nod to the frog/tadpole in the very popular Popgame’s game ‘ Zuma’ (which is so incredibly annoying to play with the zumazumazumazumazumazuma ringing perpetually in your ears.

    3. This is Ton Roosendaal, (the creator of the open source 3D creation suite ‘Blender’) posing with the Big Buck Bunny (the name charecter from the movie created using Blender tools).
