That Disturbing Photo of Owen With a Wheelbarrow has Somehow Become Even More DisturbingThis picture has become a meme here on Kotaku, and a favorite callback joke in our weekly Kotaku 'Shop Contest. I'm pushing a wheelbarrow, wearing the Selk'Bag 4G sleep system that I reviewed for gamer lifestyle suitability back in October. But wait, is that a spooky hidden secret lurking in the background?

Credit reader HerpesDerpes for pointing this out yesterday: There is a face formed by the branches in the upper right background of this image. Once you see it, well, you know the rest. Not only that, the face is present in an alternate photograph that was never published. Who is it? What is it? Leaf through the gallery to see whose spirit this may be invoking. Or suggest your own in the comments.
