The 'True Detective' Bootleg DVD Cover Left Us With These 46 Questions — VIDEO

Sometimes, special things happen. The True Detective Season 1 bootleg DVD cover is one such special thing. Reddit user/angel/hero shake-and-bake shared a photo of the fake True D cover, and the photo has since made the Internet rounds. Understandable. It's a piece of art. And I cannot stop staring at it.

I'm tempted to make it my desktop wallpaper. My top concern: I doubt I'd get any work done if the beautiful pic was constantly on my computer screen. Because I’d spend all day looking at it.

Just because I love it doesn't mean I don't have any questions for the cover. I have questions. So, so many questions:

  1. What is that bird?
  2. Is that a phoenix?
  3. Why is there a phoenix?
  4. Is the phoenix The Yellow King?
