Scratch-off movie poster shows the 100 essential movies you’ve seen
If you’re the kind of person who loves movies and scratch off lottery tickets, then we have a cool little object that sits right in the middle of this specific Venn diagram.
Pop Chart Laboratory has created a scratch off movie poster that lets you track how many “100 Essential Movies” you’ve seen on the poster, ranging from Taxi driver for The matrix and a bunch of classics in between. Once you’ve seen a movie, scratch it off like a lottery ticket to reveal the hidden image.
Here’s a before and after image to show you what it looks like with and without the scratch material:
The poster looks quite nice with all the scratch material intact, but the footage revealed after scratching this stuff is also extremely cool. If you’re the type of person who will simply delete them even if you haven’t seen the movie, be aware that some footage has spoilers. I don’t know why anyone would do that, but there are a lot of weird people out there.
By the way, for the curious, this scratch off material is actually UV ink. Not to be confused with an ink visible only under UV light, this UV ink is a mixture of monomers and colored oligomers which form a viscous liquid and become both the pigment and the solvent of a conventional ink. When exposed to UV light, polymerization occurs and creates a solid plastic-like layer, and that’s what you scratch off. You learn something new every day, don’t you?
