Puss in Boots

[Crouching tiger, hidden Walken. Hypnotic, isn't it?

If you’ve never seen Christopher Walken in Puss in Boots, add it to your queue right now. That’s him as Puss, craftily stalking a bird for supper.

Spoiler alert: it’s among the more terrible children’s films of 1988. But every scene that Walken is on screen is comic GENIUS.

I made the gif directly from Amazon video. They don’t implement freeze frame, but hey, it’s a web player. Time to fire up the JavaScript console!

(To all the jQuery haters in the audience: no, you don’t need jQuery to do this. But since Amazon thoughtfully included it on the page, why not use it?)

Open a browser console. Click on the console prompt but hover over a video to show the video controls. Then run the following:

jQuery('.playIcon').click(); setTimeout(function() { jQuery('.pausedIcon').click() }, 30);

Each time you run it in the console, the video advances one frame. Grab a screen shot and away you go.
