The "Good luck, Have Batman" Experiment

Recently, I was playing some 2v2 with my friend, when at the beginning of the match I said, "Good luck have batman". Then it turns out one of the players on the other team is from Giant Bomb as he responds "Batman Batman Batman".  I thought that was pretty awesome, so I came up with a semi-awesome idea!
And it works like this:
At the beginning of the game instead of saying GLHF, say Good luck have batman. And if someone says Good luck have batman, respond "Batman Batman Batman". 
So play a bunch of games and see how often you meet someone from Giant Bomb and post some results here, whether it's nobody or 100 people.
 
Feel free to comment on the idea, whether you think this is a good idea or a complete waste of time so I know not to post things like this again!

I wonder how this became a thing on Giant Bomb. I know that I used it on my own in the BFBC2 server while I was waiting for the TNT to start and thought I was clever. However, shortly afterward I heard Ryan say it on the stream. He wouldn't have heard it from me since he was playing on the 360 at the time. Was it already a thing at that point?

I've been using GLHB while playing HoN. I've gotten no reaction so far.

Ryan said "Good Luck, Have Batman" on the Bombcast once.

I thought it was Vinny. Oh well, the more you know!

Maybe it was Brad.... 
No, it was definitely Ryan. I think.

Oh! I think I actually remember that now, though I couldn't tell you which person said it. My subconscious must have pulled it out of my memory without cluing me in. Looks like I wasn't as clever as I thought. C'est la vie.

Awesome idea.

Or, you know, you could say,  "you from giantbomb?"

Posted by CaptainObvious

I'm in.

That would be kind of weird. "HEY YOU. YOU FROM GIANTBOMB" sounds disturbing.

I've been starting my matches with "glhbatman". most people have been "thanks!" or "heh", but one douchebag just responded with "is that supposed to be funny?"

@No0b0rAmA said:
" @supermike6: I thought it was Jeff? "
I'm fairly sure it was Jeff. And then Ryan said, "Thank you, I WILL have Batman!"
Posted by ArbitraryWater

I approve of this measure, despite not owning Starcraft 2.

@ShowNun:  You should have just paused the game, alt-tab and went ahead to do something else.

I'm pretty sure the other player can un-pause it.

I used it once in HoN. No responses other than from my friend saying. "Huh, I don't know that one."

I'm testing this in Omegle now. So far, everyone thinks I'm crazy.

Nobody even says gl hf on the european version. So I feel that my duty is to make this my opener in every match-

That's missing the point.

@tineyoghurt:
That's weird I'm on the EU servers and I've been satarting every match with glhbatman since Ryan (I really thought Vinny said it) said it on the bombcast, though no one has gone  
 BATMAN BATMAN BATMAN! yet.  
 
Though that would be awesome.

I'm down with this. Will try it in other games.

You ask that, they're like 'what's Giantbomb?', then you're like 'it's a website. About video games!'. Then they're like 'No I'm not' and then you're like '...Oh.' Awkward silence.
Posted by AngryMrWiggles

I´m soo gonna do this :D... However I would go with GL & Batman

Edited by babblinmule

Might have to try this.
 
I once met somebody from giantbomb randomly on left for dead 2. He had a deadly premontion pic and was called Zach/York or something..... ah good times were had.

@freeground: If our paths ever cross, I will BATMAN BATMAN BATMAN! you.  
 
And it would be glorious.

Posted by EightBitShik

I get the idea but someone explain in detail on how this all started....was it just the whole ryan saying it randomly on a podcast?

Posted by RTSlord

dude! thats awesome, ill have to do it sometime

Posted by BreakfastKing

I've tried a few times with no luck.  I figure there has GOT to be more people from GB down here in Bronze/Silver. 
 
Or everyone is better than me :P

Holy shit, I think this was me.
 
I was playing L4D with a friend of mine back when my Steam name was Agent Francis York Morgan and I had that picture of grinning York. Some dude joined and yelled something like "YEAHHHH GIANTBOMB."
 
Was that you?
Posted by babblinmule
@ajamafalous:  Hell yeh that was me :D   My team had utterly no idea what we were talking about, but it had me grinning all game!
Posted by Nephrahim

I'm using this every time, from now on.  Even used it in the tourney :)

Posted by TheGremp

I've actually been doing this ever since that bombcast...  Haven't run into any bombers yet, just getting a lot of "lolwut?"s.

Posted by JellyFish_Gsus

I am now inspired to do this at the start of every SC2 game.

Spreadin' the word one random dude at a time.

@Chadster:
Hahah! Thats amazing! 
 
EDIT: OMEGLE IS AMAZING
Posted by Chadster
@No0b0rAmA: 
I've had no luck finding fellow bombers so far. I've had the same two pornbots like five times now, but noone recognizes anything I say.
 
I did roll the same guy twice in a row once. Got him to go to batmanbatmanbatman.com and then we talked about lesbians. Best Omegle experience yet.

@Chadster:
Best part is some dude is looking for sex and you tell him your Batman, but not some regular-ass batman, but Russian Martian Batman!

Gonna try this tomorrow in FFAs on EU.
 
Btw, Jeff was definitely the one to say "Good luck, have Batman" while Vinny before that, suggested BM (bad manners) could also stand for the dark knight. It's in the 8/3/2010 bombcast around the 1:15 mark.
