The making of NIN's "Closer" video is fascinating. Several visuals were lifted from other artists, including Joel-Peter Witkin, Man Ray, The Brothers Quay, and Francis Bacon. Good artists borrow, great artists steal.

I´m trying to aggregate the behaviorist values of famous objects, cognitive motions, collective memories to everyday, ordinary products. This is the first  of a series of concepts called Collective Memories in ID. 
This plunger is obviously inspired by Alfred Hitchcock, Psycho, from 1960.
