Futurama: 7 Damned? 7 Damned WHAT?
I've been meaning to post this somewhere for 2 years.
In the Futurama episode "Roswell That Ends Well", at about 19:50 into the episode the ship flies through an Army building, a hangar I guess. The retro windows on some of the Army buildings are made up of a bunch of small bluish squares of glass. In this scene, though, the glass spells something out:
That's the 600 px wide version, click here for the 900 px wide one.
It obviously says "7 DAMNED" or, at the least "7 DAMN". Until I grabbed this cap I couldn't see the last 2 letters, but now that I enlarge it they seem like "ED" to me:
I thought the commentary would address this, but it didn't. There's nothing on Google about this, either. Surely I'm not the first one to see this.
EDIT: Light bulb! There are 7 windows in this bit, or "7 DAMNED" windows. Were they hard to animate? Did someone at the studio get bored? We will probably never know.
