Norm Wright drew a Where’s Waldo? It remix card on the Messing with the MacGuffin assignment. It’s been quite some time since I’ve Messed with the MacGuffin, so I couldn’t resist a quick Messing with the MacGuffin [remixed]: Where’s Waldo? It.
The final shot of Raiders of the Lost Ark is famous for illustrating bureaucracy’s ability to lose something as important as an all powerful Ark of the Covenant filled with spirits bent on melting the faces of sinners.
The mountain of crates seemed like a perfect Waldo environment, but because he’s not surrounded by similarly colored objects per normal, he sticks out sorely. So I decided this MacGuffin, would be best if Waldo were the finder of the Ark, which would not change the plot of the film as much as change the fate of humanity.
