Ground control to Major Gertsmann.
 
You have to put 2 fingers to your ear, and say Jeff 3 times.
 
Sometimes the wrong Jeff appears.
 In fact I'm yet to have Jeff Gertsmann appear.
Jeff Bridges once. That's it though.

i don't think he replies to PM's. i sent him a PM  while ago about DRM he never answered me. i was going to use him as a source for a paper as to why companies shouldn't put DRM into games. i never got an answer so i didn't use him. i can still use him if he ever replies to me.

That's weird. I tap my heels together 3 times and whisper his last name over and over again. I do this about 2 hours a day.
...it hasn't worked yet.

You guys are doing it wrong. 
 
You have to send out a smoke signal in the shape of a Jungler. The only problem is, this fire needs to be started with beard-hairs of Abraham Lincoln. This part is difficult, as to get to the the Abraham Lincoln beard-hair tree your need to fight a monster crafted solely of durgers. 
 
Not a problem, right?

Oh come on. If you want to contact the man, send him an e-mail or call the Giant Bomb office. You shouldn't expect to start having a casual conversation with the dude, but don't make him out to be some unreachable celebrity either.

You start threads about contacting him, and eventually he shows up.

Well there's your problem. You're trying to contact Jeff Gertsmann when you're looking for Jeff Gerstmann.

I dunno about Jeff. But the staff will respond to PMs. Brad, Drew, and Dave have all responded to me before.

Upon "yellowpaging" Jeff Gerstmann I come up with 2, both in CA, neither of which are in the area where I would expect this particular Jeff Gerstmann to be living.

Jeff's like a piece of string, when you need him he's nowhere to be found but when you don't... BAM! he jumps out your closet and grants you 3 wishes. Well string dooesn't grant you 3 wishes but you get the point.

Play this song really loud and he'll appear.

He probably won't respond. If you're important enough to talk to, he'd think you'd be too busy to be on this site. You may not be able to tell, but he's a lot about business.

Turn around... HE's RIGHT BEHIND YOU!

Look for his coming, at first light, on the fifth day. At dawn, look to the East.

He most likely won't respond. He think he's an elitist.
