The Experiment

I'm trying something new, and thought the easiest way to do it would be to make a separate site where people could come to help me with it.

Those of you that read my other blog may be aware
of an attempt I made a few months back to test how easily someone could hijack another persons Google image page. My goal was to get an image of a balloon I designed to show up at the top of a Google image search when you looked for a specific person.

That specific person is Brian Brushwood.

You may already know w
ho this person is, he's something of an internet celebrity.

Perhaps best known for his podcasts on the Twit Network, he is also a professional magician that tours all over the country.

Brian was selected for a couple of reasons.
1. Look at the guy, he can clearly take a joke
2. His fans are the type of person that would be interested in helping out with this experiment.
3. His friend and co-host Justin Robert Young seemed very excited by the idea of making this a part of one of their live broadcasts.

Here's what I need you to do...
Link the following image everywhere you can. Preferably use sites that have a good Google rating, but I want as many links connecting to this picture as possible. This seems to be the quickest and easiest way to get a picture to climb the Google image page.
Please do not repost or make copies of the image. The goal is to get one image to the top of the search page, not fill the page with a bu
nch of copies of the same picture.
If this is successful, then I'm sure there will be comments made about it during one of the NSFW shows podcasts.

Here is the image. I made a balloon version of Brian Brushwood holding up a balloon version of his little friend Mr. Happypants.

Thank you for any help given in trying to make this work.

I'll make updates as things progress so people who are interested can see how things go.

As a side note, Brian Brushwood has written a book about how to learn Fire Eating. I own it, it's the best resource someone interested in learning this can have. Here it is on Amazon. Check it out.
