When will people learn that polling the general online public for help with a serious issue will inevitably end in the power of the internet turning your cause into a joke.
2016 has given us plenty of amazing examples, like Britain’s NERC poll overwhelmingly suggesting they name a research vessel ‘Boaty McBoatface’, and ‘Harambe McHarambeface’ reportedly winning a poll a Chinese zoo held to name their new gorilla.
So when internationally renowned DJ and producer Calvin Harris reached out to the twittersphere and asked for help picking a new profile picture, the result was pretty much exactly what you’d expect.
Plenty of real Calvin fans made reasonably suggestions. but the majority began to suggest a range of inappropriate options including super old photos, of ones where he’s not quite in the frame, or where he’s getting intimate with his ex T-Swift.
Dillon Francis’s predictably NSFW suggestion that Harris just use a picture of a huge black dildo was absolute gold, but true to his word Calvin picked his fav; a portrait entirely drawn in paint.
Check out some of the best responses, and the winner below.
