Part of my new relationship with MailChimp is an integration with their Analytics360 plugin, which allows me to see traffic to my website in all kinds of easy-to-read formats. The referring link section is very extensive and a little browsing led me to discover just how much legs my goofy Photoshops have had. I wondered, for instance, why I was getting so many views of Cheetah Horse. A quick Google search revealed that if you google the words “cheetah horse” my image comes up first. My image of an exterminator getting rid of the locusts of the Apocolypse is being used in a blog about fixing computer bugs. And my Denny’s sign is in use, well, just about everywhere. The time I shopped a friend into a lineup of the Ghostbusters cast is illustrating a blog entry about Ghostbusters 3, which leads me to wonder if people are always aware that these are not real. My apologies to Denny’s.
I ended up signing back up for Fark because a couple of my goofy Photoshops have been making their way all over the internet. My “Burger King vs. the Quaker Oats Guy” in particular has been floating all over random forums, and that’s led people to some of my other ones, landing them on a few MySpace pages as well. I don’t know why. I do think some of them are pretty funny.
