I was wondering if this is in any way a Decemberists reference? They have one song called Shiny, and another that mentions a will-o-wisp. If not thats cool too, I just thought it might be.
I am actually unfamiliar with that band. They any good?
I chose Will-O-Wisp because I remember it was a creature card from Magic. I use to play that game with my brother in the early/mid 90s.
Honestly, I have no clue were the phrase "Oh Shiny" originated. I just know people use it when they see something appealing, valuable or simple shiny. When I read, "...sometimes said to recede if approached" off the wiki page, I needed a motive for someone to follow it. "Oh Shiny" came to mind fairly quickly (the image on the wiki page probably helped with that). However, if the Decemberist were the first to coin the phrase "Oh Shiny," then yes... I am unwittingly referencing them.
Glad you enjoy it.
