Dane Cook gets turned to stone by Medusa

The figure who gets turned to stone by Medusa is that of comedian Dane Cook, as he appeared in the Dane Cook Gets... brickfilming fad. This was a participatory fad in brickfilming that was originally popular in 2009 and 2010 and saw many people creating short films in which Dane Cook meets a grisly end. Zach Macias was one of the original participators in the fad.
