What the hell, why can't I see his zero-rated reviews? What a joke.

Does he qualify for Prime?

I don't buy anyone whose claim to be an awesome manager relies, even in part, on his best marathon time. Dodged a bullet last fall.

The "Add to Cart" button doesn't work; there is no Phil in my cart. DESIGN FAIL.

If you use "No copyright infringement intended" on anything, that's a great sign that I shouldn't hire you for any sort of knowledge work.

Yeah, I don't think he has to worry about copyright on this (at least US copyright as this falls firmly under a parody exception). I know less about trademark law, but that's what I would worry about if I were he, but then I wouldn't worry about it even then. Amazon would be idiots to go after him on this. I think he's safe even if they did, since the "idiot in a hurry" standard isn't met. No one is going to confuse this page for the real Amazon.

cjorgensen, I did confuse it for amazon when I first looked at it.

I love that he made it so a little NO symbol pops up if you try to add him to your wedding registry.

Forget the cutesy-cute and view the source to see why I wouldn't call this guy in for an interview. Despite claims, HTML5 and CSS3 (or just well-formatted, maintainable markup) are apparently sold out.

As did I; for a moment I thought "wow, what balls it takes to put yourself/resume up on Amazon as a product while you're still working there."

Wait, I'm confused: Is he the customer, or the product being sold?

I'd like to see the "People who viewed this product ended up buying" section.

It's just a link to Match.com.

How many tubs of Tide can I trade him for?

As a third-party Amazon seller, I am very disappointed that there is no "have one to sell?" button. I could swear I had a spare Phil laying around that I could list now that a page has been created. But then someone will come along and list their Phil for a penny, and there goes the market on yet another decent item.

I do like it, it's cute and fun, but I don't really get what it is he does. The medium is either getting in the way of the message, or else it's compensating for a rather vague and insubstantial message.

I like how if you click on the green asics it takes you to an actual amazon page, as opposed to every other link, which goes nowhere. THANKS TO PHILLIPPE, I NOW OWN THESE SWEET-ASS GREEN ASICS. WOULD BUY AGAIN.

YOu've got TIde, arcticseal? I will give you 3 of this dude for all the Tide!

Well, he at least kinda addresses that issue:

"I actually had to trim through more than 11,000 lines of code off an original product page to do that.
This is also the reason why most of the code is original Amazon code, and not rewritten HTML5/CSS3 code."

I would very much like to read the 37 1-star reviews.

But why Amazon? Should have made it like eBay and have potential employers bidding his price up...

For real. My problem as a manager is dealing w. folks not understanding or being able to admit to their limitations. I would much, much rather deal with a flawed human being who had a real understanding of his/her limitations than someone with a tone deaf and/or delusional sense of self; got plenty of those already.

Clever concept but executed in far too a shallow manner. Not interested.

I've seen far too many well-informed web-literate design people who have amply demonstrated content mastery + design mastery at reasonable rates.

But the "add all three to cart" button just gives you the contact form for this Phillippe guy. Doesn't CC the green asics on the message or anything.

Wow, ShutterBun, he did that? Cray-zee. Someone claiming to have those skills should have been able to buld it much faster from scratch.

Short shelf life? He lists three jobs that he held for less than a year.

I'm debating between Phillippe and the Three Wolf Moon T-shirt.
posted by Ruthless Bunny at 8:52 AM on January 25, 2013


The correct answer is Three Phillippe Moon. Win win!
