If you ever watched the NBC occasional prime-time game show Hollywood Game Night hosted by Glee star Jane Lynch you probably fell in love with the segment called Celebrity Fusion. The current grade B guest celebrities are shown a Photoshop fusion of two celebrities whose faces have been blurred together and happen to share a common name. One celebrity's last name is the first name of the other. The celebrity has to guess the new name. Comedian Jim Carrey mashed with The Price is Right host Drew Carey yields Jim Drew Carrey. You get the idea.
Well, Tumblr user Buffalobillgates (named after one of his mashup creations that combines Bill Gates with Buffalo Bill) has created a whole channel full of such smashups. Since Buffalobillgates can't afford a decent version of Photoshop he has gone the low tech route of splicing a top face to a bottom face with what ever free photo editing software allows him to do it easily and quickly. The result is pretty groan worthy but so awful it is good funny, especially when he stumbles on a smashup name that is quite appropriate. Go to his channel to see MICKEY MAOZEDONG, SPOCKAHONTAS, ALICE IN WONDERLANDY WARHOL, MAD MAXL ROSE, JOLLY ROGER RABBIT, KATE MOZZY, BABAR KELLY, DIRTY HARRY POTTER, MADONNALD DUCK, and others.
For those who want to play along, the celebrity smashup name is hidden under a spoiler block.
