Maybe it's just how the human brain works. We look at something and don't see every detail and our brain just fills in the gaps for sake of easy of understanding. "I see the finger-wheel and therefore there is a dial card, and oh look, an original color matching cord..." :D

Not creepy, just strange, actually, looks really strange after just spending about 3 hours in the middle of the night shoveling manure.
