"Eyebombing" is a humorous trend of sticking googly eyes on random objects to essentially make them come to life. This movement came around in the early 2000s, and the inspiration for this entertaining idea has been claimed by French artist Do Benracassa in his 1980s project "Ça Vous Regarde". 

Though many say that sticking the wiggle eyes on images of people is not considered to be part of the trend, since the folks portrayed are already alive, sometimes it adds a lot of character to the photos and even makes things more relatable.  

Several folks took it to one of Reddit's communities dedicated specifically to the "eyebombing" trend to share their brilliant googly eyes masterpieces. The online group currently has over 64K members and has been a thing since 2011. Moreover, BP has already done a similar article, so click here if you would like to check the first part out.

The white car's tail light is giving him a Rudolph nose to go with the googly eyes.

I don't think that book will belong to anyone other than the frog. He's asserted dominance already.

Funnily enough, I have this exact model of crock pot currently making tonight's dinner in it. Maybe I should add some googly eyes to mine too...
