Watch: 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' As You've Never Seen It Before

Regardless of what you may think of Johnny Depp, Hunter S. Thompson, Terry Gilliam, ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,’ Las Vegas itself, or Google, this clip will, to put it gently, blow your mind. Roelof Pieters ran the famous San Francisco acid trip bar scene from Gilliam’s adaptation of Thompson’s drug-addled Vegas travelogue through Google Deep Dream, a neural-network-esque code that re-visualizes objects and ultimately transforms them (that’s my best explanation)–and transform the scene he did! (Although it didn’t need much…) In any event, watch for yourself.
