The other night I caught a Twitter conversation between @Tony_DWM and @MaxMinzer where (for some reason) they were talking about what showed up when you conducted Google Image Searches for their own/each other’s names (e.g. “tony dimmock seo“). I checked out a few of the searches myself and somehow ended up doing the same for other bigwigs in our industry, including @randfish and @mattcutts. Don’t ask me why – I don’t even know. Boredom? Yeah, let’s go with that.
…But it was at that point that I realised… boy, there’s a lot of doodles, sketches, etc. starring Matt Cutts. I found around 20 after a quick 5-minute search and so I
thought it’d be an idea felt it was my duty to share these tributes to the individual who’s “about the closest thing to a ‘rock star’ in the SEO world” (not my words; source).
So, without further ado…
These first few put our pal Matt in a… let’s say… more flattering and normal light…
1) First off, a normal-ish caricature:
2) And another, this time with his buddy Rand:
3) Getting a taste of his own medicine…
4) Pushing over a penguin (a phrase that two years ago would’ve ended “as you do…” but makes perfect sense now):
5) Eating spam:
6) Gambling! (Something to do with vBSEO apparently):
We all know and love* Matt Cutts as Google’s Head of Webspam. But what if he never joined Google? What career would he have gone on to do instead? Struggling to think? Well struggle no more, my friends!
7) Matt Cutts, JCB driver:
8) Dr. Cutts in surgery:
9) Darth Cutts,
Sith Spam Lord:
Matt Cutts as an animal/object/character/hybrid freak-show? Yes please!
10 & 11) Lego Cutts:
12) Movie Snack Cutts:
13) Collectable Cutts Card:
(As a complete aside, I wonder what #SEBALD‘s stats would be?)
14) Meme Cutts:
(All your data are belong to us…?)
(Featuring a fair few other industry folk!)
16) Catt Cutts:
(I think this might be the ‘true’ source, where Catt Cutts is a… web hosting salesman. Hmm!)
17) Matt-guin Pen-Cutts?
(Quite scary actually…)
…Speaking of scary…!
And the less said about these next few, the better…
18) Running over Todd Malicoat (StuntDubl):
(Matt’s clearly been playing too much GTA V since its release… What makes this extra creepy is not only is Matt smiling while running someone over, he’s thinking about nothing while he’s doing it. NOTHING. Purely devoid of emotion. You sick bastard, Matt…)
19) Matt Cutts Doll Maker (meaning he’s nearly naked in his default state):
Err… Ok, that’s a bit weird. Surely there’s nothing creepier than that?
20) Dominatrix Cutts:
(And yet this could’ve actually gone in the Career Cutts category…)
…And with that, we draw to a close – a fitting place to stop, actually. Happy nightmares, everyone!
