It’s undeniable that from day one, one of the most popular features of the site is its unique t-shirt filter. This feature lead to us being the butt of Matt Cutt’s 2014 April Fools day joke, where he wore what we have gone on to categorise as a ‘psychedelic’ t-shirt. Throughout the duration of the video, Cutts’ t-shirt slowly goes through the motions of the rainbow, something which he has since admitted in a forum post on Hacker News was merely a way of playing with us: “We made our April fools video with the changing shirt colour specifically to play with that”, he said.
Following on from these Cutts’ shenanigans, in a video he has recently posted, his body has been cropped out with the intention of highlighting the importance of high-quality content in the body of the page. Cutts’ latest video has got us questioning whether the body-less act is simply the next move in his quest to flout the t-shirt filter on The Short Cutts.
We may never know if this was the case but either way, we are enjoying the cat and mouse chase. You can find the body-less Cutts video within the psychedelic t-shirt category.
Your move, Cutts.
