You're going to like the way you look. I Guarantee it!"
George Zimmer is the founder and CEO of the Men's Wearhouse. He is also the subject a fad on YTMND based on various 4chan copypastas. The first site was created by site mod fyrestorm, showing a very obscene drawing of George Zimmer with an enormous cock, accompanied by "The Wings" (the main theme of the movie Brokeback Mountain) by Gustavo Santaolalla. The original site was made in late May, but the fad did not take off until July after a PST-styled site based on his quote was made.
Due to the nature of the original site, many of the Zimmer fad sites have been sexual of nature. The user boomaga made a remix using both Zimmer's quote as well as a quote from porn actor Peter North. Due to the nature of the remix, boomaga only put a short excerpt of the song in as well as a sfw picture. The full uncensored remix can be found on Volume 12 of the YTMND Soundtrack along with the Brokeback Mountain theme.
Stop posting crap plz
On 2006-07-07 midnight, users saw that the Top 15 viewed was replaced with a picture of George Zimmer's face with text below that said 'stop posting crap plz'. The image, links to Fyrestorm's George Zimmer YTMND. Eventually, the entire YTMND site (except for the bar with About etc. and the YTMND logo) was gone, and the same thing that was on the top 15 viewed replaced the entire website, including the ads. Eventually, things changed to normal. This was one of the major influences of the fad.
The Scare of July 25th
At midnight of July 25, 2006, Max made every YTMND sound the beginning eBaum's World or another site that hates YTMND did it. After a few minutes, all images were replaced with fyrestorm's George Zimmer YTMNSFW image mirroring back and forth, with red text under it saying either 'STOP POSTING CRAP PLZ' or 'UNORIGINAL OR STOLEN IMAGE GOES HERE'. This completely freaked out the YTMND community, who created about the crazed madness. Most sites returned to normal in about an hour., a remix of the song by Suzanne Vega by a group called DNA. Many users were surprised at this, suspecting
New Layout Prank
On September 24th, 2006, Max posted a fake front page that came up whenever the main YTMND url was accessed. It featured an "MS Paint"-esque rendition of the old front page, likely a satire on its flawed design. This was accompanied by the text "YOU'RE GOING TO LIKE THE WAY IT LOOKS, I GUARANTEE IT" at the bottom, along with a George Zimmer remix of The O'Jays - Love Train from an old site. This briefly respurred interest in the George Zimmer fad.
