Ze Frank project: Young me, now me

Ze Frank, the creator of the legendary Web-video feature known simply as “the show,” has a new project I just found out about called “Young Me, Now Me” — the idea being that you take a photo of yourself in the same pose as a picture of yourself from when you were young, and submit it to Ze. Some of the shots are pretty funny. As with many of Ze’s projects, including the recent Twitter “color wars,” there’s no obvious goal for the contest, which ends today. Will people get to vote on the best? It’s not clear. That’s half of the fun of Ze’s ideas — the fact that there’s no obvious purpose other than to do something interesting. The photos remind me of this video by Vimeo founder and former CEO Jakob Lodwick.
