Why does a video exist of famed film director Werner Herzog musing about the philosophical questions behind Where’s Waldo? I believe the answer you’re looking for is “Why not?”
Many of us grew up with this books, but we never pondered the mysteries behind them. Who is Waldo? Why is hiding? Who is that wizard who’s always stalking him?
I guarantee every time you see a Waldo book now, you’re going to be hearing Herzog’s awesome accented voice in your head.
