Well, not exactly, but close enough.
It is Jeff...huh. I wonder if he knows about this.  "
I pretty much doubt it, that website looks very dodgy and cheap.
#5 Posted by darkspirit138 (504 posts) -

Its Jeff-approved...apparently.


#6 Posted by Bigandtasty (3139 posts) -

Only if I get a cut x_x

#7 Posted by EpicSteve (6909 posts) -

Of course it's legit.

#8 Posted by TheKidNixon (1619 posts) -

As far as I can tell, this is a dude who's trying to take advantage of the "recommend GameFly to a friend feature" by somehow getting people to join through saying they know him...or it could just be a scam to get people credit card numbers.

Either way, I doubt cartoon-Jeff or real-Jeff really approve.

hmmm... wierd and probably used without permission.  Apparently someone felt jeff's cartoon face would work as a selling point to gamers. 

Side note, I always hated those websites that attempt to profit off you signing up for someone elses services.  Fuck refferal websites.

The site will never need ads after that.

Just look at Jeff in that pic, Of course he approves! haha

Oh this is kind of strange. I don't know if I like it.

This can't be legal.

#16 Posted by tychoon (133 posts) -

I believe that the mature and right thing to do would be to bomb this site with e-mails about this.

What the hell.

like wow "that site looks legitimate" enters card details :o

#21 Posted by Torrim (362 posts) -

I don't even know if their service is legit.  I'm pretty sure I'd have issue with that first, because if they're the kind of scammers I think they are, lifting Jeff's cartoon image is the least to be worried about.

#22 Posted by cinemandrew (723 posts) -

I like the fine print at the bottom of the page that claims there are only a few free trials left... FOR GAMEFLY!! Seriously?

#23 Posted by Snail (8772 posts) -

Sue the fuck out of those guys Jeff!

#24 Posted by insanejedi (781 posts) -

Why Pick the Money or the Mob when you can have both with this sue?

#25 Posted by tychoon (133 posts) -

If Jeff approves then it's all good, nothing to worry about Torrim =).

#26 Posted by KillaMaStA (878 posts) -

Theres no way that site is legit, no way.

#28 Posted by Kohe321 (3568 posts) -

Huh that looks pretty non-legit.

#29 Posted by Lies (3985 posts) -

Good lord it's straight out of 1999.

I love websites like that.

#32 Posted by Tiwi (1423 posts) -

#33 Posted by PeasForFees (2414 posts) -

Amusing how the link take you toa health product

#34 Posted by cinemandrew (723 posts) -

Have they sued yet? Are we all millionaires? I mean, clearly whoever is running this site is loaded.

#35 Posted by DavidSnakes (699 posts) -

I'm bumping this until Jeff acknowledges it

#36 Posted by Tiwi (1423 posts) -

Looks like we have our mob, Jeff just needs to get his money. :D
#38 Posted by PeasForFees (2414 posts) -

And obviously they are getting money out of Jeffs likeness, not to mention the infringment of copyright

#39 Posted by Pie (7217 posts) -

That site is perfectly legit and not full of scammers

Oh, they've done it now.  May God have mercy on their souls' for calling down the wrath of Whiskey Media's crack legal team.

All kinds of imagery just popped into my head.

As if the website didn't come across phony enough, it links you then to GameFly. Because you know, somebody interested in renting games would go to a shit website like that first, then follow a link asking for your information. They wouldn't just go to the actual website first!

#45 Posted by Wolverine (4575 posts) -
@Bigandtasty: Everybody always wondered how Giant Bomb is making money. The secret is that cartoon Jeff is the spokesmen for gamefly on sites that no one has ever heard of.
#46 Posted by RipTheVeins (1609 posts) -

This can only be dealt with by Dayman, fighter of the Nightman, Champion of the Sun (master of karate and friendship, for everyone).
