Best Website Hack Ever

Posted By: on January 7, 2010


Visitors to the new European Union site who would normally be greeted by Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero were instead met with the beautiful mug of Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean) thanks to a some very cleaver nyrd with a terrific sense of humor. He did have a political agenda attached to his attack but I enjoy his use of comedy to further his message. I find it both brilliant and inspiring in a way.

With the traditional media all a-tweet about Twitter, Facebook and social media in general and their inability to harness it and understand it (they are like my grandparents trying to figure out their cell phone) it’s funny when you see something so simple like this make headline news. It has done exactly what he intended it to do…it brought hordes of people to the site to view his hilarity but in reality he got his point to the masses…he got his voice heard, and all it took was a bit of humor. Very smart my friend…very smart. And like the the saying goes…it’s funny ’cause it’s true:

    Along the same lines as this story, got phished just 2 days ago. I guess no site is safe.

  3. Hi, came across your website by accident this morning, but I'm please that I did! As well as being full of infomation but also easy to get through unlike scores that I visit. (The site I'm trying to work on, is a review of hypnotherapy downloads). I have been trying to work out what menu layout you were using, anyone have anny ideas? The site I'm working on is related to hypnotherapy downloads. I employ the same profile on my site, which is a review site for hypnotherapy downloads, – but I find somehow and for whatever weird issue it appears to load more quickly here, though you seem to have a fair bit more entries. Have you used any widgets or plugins that speed it up? -Finally, I appreciate such a great site and it's obviously a great model for my own modest review site of hypnotherapy downloads. I'll try to improve my own site. I'll check back on your impressive website as often as I can.

  4. The author covered several curious things in this article. I found this article by using Google and I have to admit that I already subscribed to the blog site, it is quite fine (:
