Creepy Riker GIF

Does anyone know where this is from? It's obviously not from an episode.

Why not? I'm sure I've seen it in an episode. Rascals?

Not from an episode. it's from this infomercial thingy:



Check out the 5:15 mark

Question is, how did someone get a high quality gif of this? I've only seen it on this blurry video before.

It's from the Boole and Babbage infomercial that TrekCore did a write-up on a while ago. That exact GIF in on this page:

Could it be an outtake of a reaction shot? It looks like about one second in, he starts to lose his concentration, and stops being Riker to become Frakes. That final grin seems to be looking straight into the camera rather than at someone offscreen.

Oh, never mind. I spent too much time analyzing the zoom after post #2 while the other posts came in.

Re: Creepy Riker GIF

I love the mid 90s Star Trek-ish infomercials.

The original post looks like it was from the TNG special that aired before the final episode.

After seeing this, I don't think anything else can creep me out.

I'd be more surprised if someone found a gif of Riker that wasn't creepy
