What is this:
Whenever things go awry, you'll have to look-out for him/her/it, and he/she/it may help you.



enter image description here


HINT:

The first picture shows Dhanush, the singer of the viral youtube video song "Kolaveri Di". Dig deeper and you'll find the answer.

  • $\begingroup$ So is this basically a 4 Pics 1 word puzzle (like the mobile game, in which all the pictures relate to one word)??? $\endgroup$ – Daedric Mar 10 '16 at 13:51
  • $\begingroup$ Nope. 4 pics 4 words which finally take you to the final solution. $\endgroup$ – Prashant Mar 10 '16 at 15:54
  • $\begingroup$ @Alexis What's that? Ytisfrysitlerkeace? $\endgroup$ – Prashant Mar 10 '16 at 15:56

The answer might be

Control-Alt-Delete


Explanation

Image 1:

THREE (The song "Kolaveri Di" is from a Tamil psychological thriller film called "3".)

Image 2:

FINGER (potato fingers)

Image 3:

SALUTE

Image 4:

KEYS (piano keys)

Conclusion:

1. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three-finger_salute, "Three-finger salute" is a jocular term for the three-key command Control-Alt-Delete.
2. Whenever things go awry with my PC, I reboot it by Control-Alt-Delete.
3. Control-Alt-Delete came up in the 1980s with the MS-DOS operating system.

    $\begingroup$ I found this puzzle quite difficult. Already yesterday I had the vague idea that this might be related to a computer keyboard ("since the 80s" plus piano "keys"), but only today I was able to make the right connections. $\endgroup$ – Gamow Mar 11 '16 at 11:19

    $\begingroup$ Interesting. I've never even heard of the phrase "potato fingers", before. Never would have guessed it. $\endgroup$ – Khale_Kitha Mar 11 '16 at 13:59
  • $\begingroup$ @Khale_Kitha me either! but I get it now. $\endgroup$ – question_asker Mar 11 '16 at 15:39

    $\begingroup$ Funny, I would have thought that "potato fingers" was a term that would apply to someone that requires a "dialing wand". $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Mar 11 '16 at 17:44

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps this got something to do with: urbandictionary.com/… $\endgroup$ – Gamow Mar 10 '16 at 18:03
  • $\begingroup$ The third may also refer to Nazi or salute. $\endgroup$ – Khale_Kitha Mar 10 '16 at 20:28
  • $\begingroup$ atleast two of the three remaining clues are already there in all the guesses combined, between @feelinferrety and the comments $\endgroup$ – Prashant Mar 11 '16 at 3:08
