Letting the Other Shoe Drop

The most replayed video clip today on the web is probably the footage of President Bush twice ducking shoes thrown at him at a press conference by an Iraqi reporter. A number of digital content creators have also created animated gifs that present the incident as an infinite loop. See, for example, this message board for a number of samples that include one in which the lobbed shoe runs backwards.

Update: Mosaic at Link TV has an interesting round-up of coverage of the incident in Middle Eastern news stations. Ian Bogost has posted a list of a half-dozen shoe-wielding online games at Water Cooler Games.
