Dave Gorman’s Googlewhack


I’ve just watched Dave Gorman‘s Googlewhack Adventure on DVD and what a blast! I don’t know how I’ve managed to muddle through my life and not know who this guy is. He’s a complete Nutter! With a captial “N” mind you. But insanity is often crossed with genius and he has a lot of that too. Somehow he manages to go through life attracting the absolutely ridiculous and has the enviable ability of being able to tell the tale on stage in front of lots of people with a slide show to gales of laughter. The DVD is a 2 hour one man show that is absolutely captivating, hysterical, unbelievable and strangely comforting. He sincerely asks that no part of his act be discussed out side of his act, so as not to ruin the plot – and I obey: just find it and watch it.

You can buy the DVD from amazon here. He has a whole bunch of other DVDs that look interesting too… especially the one that has him looking for other people (54 of them) that share his name.

Incidentally, if you don’t know what a Googlewhack is, here is a definition:

A Googlewhack is a Google search query consisting of two words, that returns a single result. Source


This has inspired me to become a googlewhack somehow. I need to find a way of being able to produce a googlewhack result. I’m not entirely sure I know how I intend to pull this off, but I’ll set myself a deadline of February 29. Let’s see. 🙂


About torgnyhylen

I'm an digital creative director working in Cape Town South Africa for Ogilvy Interactive. I've been designing in some capacity for the last 14 years, 12 of those online. I love what I do... and if there was one thing I wish I could do more of... it would be to paint. Besides movies and art, my other serious past-time is good old pen & paper role-playing games. Writing stories for friends that take years to complete and are improved beyond recogination by their participation is a real kick.
