Having only recently recovered from the unnerving spectacle of Chicks With Steve Buscemi Eyes, America must now confront the perverse and often baffling phenomenon of Guys With Zooey Deschanel’s Eyes, thanks to a new, single-purpose Tumblr. Since May 20 of this year, Guys With Zooeyes has given its readers an assortment of crudely but effectively Photoshopped images of notable male actors, rappers, and TV personalities with their own eyes replaced with the crystal blue, eyeliner-bedecked orbs of quirky multi-hyphenate Zooey Deschanel. Starting, as it must, with Nick Offerman, the Tumblr has altered the countenances of such notables as Guy Fieri, Hulk Hogan, and the cast of Duck Dynasty. Though still young, Girls With Zooeyes has already garnered a tweet of approval from Ms. Deschanel herself. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of this project is that the addition of Zooeyes does not have a homogeneous effect on its subjects. While rapper Rick Ross is softened and subtly emasculated by the process, for instance, Kanye West acquires an even more profound intensity. The late PBS art instructor Bob Ross, on the other hand, remains essentially unchanged.
