Oh, no!

I do like the yellow ducky, but the rest of it not so much.

Reminds me of a client some years ago. He was a photographer who wanted to showcase his quite stylish black-and-white photographs. He loved the initial website design but said he wanted a jumping frog on each page.

We declined the contract and he ultimately found someone who would do it for him. He would have absolutely drooled over these websites.

I actually clicked on the (ridiculously) few links on that page and it appears that the guy is absolutely serious--took me a couple of other links and then a scroll waaayyyy down the page to find anything. From what I found, he has no contact info other than a phone number--he actually states "call me" rather than having an email link...

Eeek - remind me not to get a nose job from him! I'd probably end up looking like a Picasso model

When I first posted the link I imagined it was a joke website. However, following the links made me wonder - why go to all that effort? - so I Googled the guy and, yes, looks like he's serious (if 'serious' is the right word).

Maybe he's from the school of "if we make our ad awful enough, people will remember us."
