Ready to have your mind blown? Did you know that David Bowie's face is hidden throughout Labyrinth?

That's crazy.  Wonder how many more there are.

I love stuff like that.  There's a lot of crazy use of numbers in Scott Pilgrim that I didn't notice until I read about it in Cracked.  Maybe we should turn this into a thread about crazy hidden stuff in movies.

You jerk. I obsessed over this one for like an hour before I found it.   ;)

Kept looking way out into the far reaches convinced it was out there.

That would be pretty cool.  The 1 frame inserts in Fight Club always crack me up.

I guess we could - Is there enough of them?

That's pretty freaky, Bowie.

Cracked covered a few recently (http://www.cracked.com/article_20455_5-brilliant-clues-hidden-in-background-movies.html)

They also did an article that talks about the plot of Iron Man being given away by the terrorists, just not in English.

So basically this thread could be for Easter eggs in movies/shows?

I did notice David Bowie's face throughout the Labyrinth. I first noticed it when I was a kid. I probably missed a lot of them though

Here's the article that talks about Scott Pilgrim, among other things

Edgar Wright movies have a ton of Easter Eggs and forshadowing.  Almost everyone in Hot Fuzz has a last name that represents what they are, whether it be their jobs (Tim Messenger, newspaper man, Ms. Tiller, gardener) or less savoury activities.  Also, the Neighborhood Watch Alliance is referred to as the NWA.

As in this NWA

EDIT: found the Bowie in the above hedge maze picture.  That one was real tricky.

To anyone who wants to give up looking and just wants to know where it is:
