Rick Mercer Report - Photo Challenge

For those who don’t know, the Rick Mercer Report is kind of like The Daily Show in Canada. At the end of the show they introduce their Photo Challenge - a picture of a public figure for all to photoshop. The best images get a moment on the show.

Every time I see this I always think I need to submit something. So tonight, I did.

Here’s the original - this is my entry

I like the idea of Stéphane Dion being on American Idol singing something like Unchained Melody.

Any other dopers submit a Photo Challenge? Did it make it on the show?


No love for Rick or his photo fun?


I like Rick and his photo fun!

I just suck at Photoshop and can never come up with any good ideas.

I liked yours! :slight_smile:

I love Rick Mercer! He’s consistently funny, and has somehow managed to maintain it over the years. I still have a soft spot for the Stockwell/Doris Day stunt though.

I’ve never bothered with the Photo Challenge (Photoshop skills aren’t quite up to it), but your entry’s pretty good.

I suck at Photoshop.

He’ll get 100,000 entries of Dion hoisting the Stanley Cup, I bet. One would have been mine if, as I said, I didn’t suck at Photoshop. Or anything else vaguely artistic.

Your entry is excellent. He really does look like he’s shrieking to Simon, Paula and Randy, though it looks more like he’s doing “What a Feeling” from “Flashdance.”

I don’t have Photoshop. I like yours, Seven. Very nice. Can you change the background to read “Canadian Idol,” or would that be too obvious?

Maybe he could be doing a rain dance?
