I’m embarrassed to admit that I still haven’t seen the Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove despite all the huge acclaim and buzz (I hope to finally see it later this week). Louie Psihoyos‘ film follows a group of activists, led by renown dolphin trainer Ric O’Barry, who use state-of-the-art equipment to infiltrate a cove near Taijii, Japan “to expose both a shocking instance of animal abuse and a serious threat to human health.”
Apparently during the film, the crew get the idea to have a friend at ILM to build them spy cameras to capture the act of the crime. But it is during that segment where we get a small cameo from another big screen villain: Prince Vigo the Carpathian from Ghostbusters 2. You can see the screencapture from The Cove, along with a full photo of the Vigo the Carpathian painting after the jump. It haunts my dreams!
