Don’t piss off Ms. Dewey

One more fun post tonight.

At this point, many people on the web have seen Ms. Dewey, the viral marketing site that encourages people to search using live.com. The nice Ms. Dewey looks like this:

Ms. Dewey in a good mood

But what happens if you refuse to search with live.com? Well, Ms. Dewey gets MMMMMAAAAAADDDDD!!!

Ms. Dewey about to kill you!

It turns out that Janina Gavankar, the actress who played Ms. Dewey, had a role in Cup of My Blood. Valleywag calls the film soft-porn (<—— Not safe for work), but other sources place it in the religious-horror genre. In the spirit of investigation, does anyone want to add it to their Netflix queue?

Okay, now I’m off to read comic books graphic novels and head to bed. No more blogging for a while! Goodnight..

  1. People should ask Ms. Dewey about Ms. Javankar. Keep pressing her for more information. The results are very, very funny. It’s a great marketing concept.

  2. Oops. Sorry. I should have written “Ms. Dewey about Ms. Gavankar…”.

  3. Okay, now I’m off to read comic books graphic novels and head to bed

    The last time you were so much productive was when Mrs. Cutts, your mother and your mother-in-law traveled together to China.

    At that time you posted the best Grabbag on this planet ( 192 Comments!!!!). Should we expect the same within this week if you get time? ;)

    Ms Dewey don’t do dial up so I can’t currently er… investigate this fully.

    Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow

    Thanks for all the posts

  6. I like the response if you ask about world of warcraft

    Any Day Ms. Gavankar

    SEW

    I wouldn’t call your posts “User Friendly” ones ;)

    Though I find some of your posts interesting indeed, its difficult for me to read them, because of all those; italian, bold, capital and small fonts, all mixed together :(

    Thanks!

  8. Ian

    Harith – Italian? :D

  9. The new “Y: The Last Man” trade collection is out — is that what you read at bedtime? Or maybe one of the Elsewords?

  10. Harith

    Ian

    Did I write that?

    Blame it on SEW :)

  11. Man, I can’t see anybody using this more than once. The loading time, plus the intro, plus the HUGE lag time while she says something irrelevant before my search results load…

    this is supposed to HELP live.com?? How?

  12. I like this Matt, any excuse to look at other women while your wife is not at home huh?

    You dog you. :-)

    I hope you wife doesn’t read your blog (often) for your own sake.

    Interesting tool though. A bit useless. I prefer Google for my searching needs to be quite honest.

    Thanks,

  13. Ha! MsDewey will keep my attention for hours. It’s great if you have a bunch of bandwidth. :)

  14. I may have missed something, but I find the whole Ms. Dewey thing annoying. Does anyone else?

  15. Excuse me Matt but down there in Mountain View isn’t Ms Dewey just like every girl next door? Part virtual, part horror movie, and cross if you make the wrong query?

  16. Searching for naughty terms elicits an amusing response from her.

    Matt,

    You really need to look into why http://www.respond.com is taking up in some cases 4 or 5 spots on a single page of results. These guys have got every industry pegged with numerous results from different subdomains on the same page of results.

    Here is an example:
    driveway paving texas

    http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLJ,GGLJ:2006-41,GGLJ:en&q=driveway+paving+texas

    Ms Dewey is nice to look at but, at least MSN LIve search is not sucking up the spam bait. They only show one result from that site for the same search.

    Is this what has become of Google?

  18. commentator

    if you want a real laugh, search for Janina Gavankar nude – really funny

  19. If you ask her if she’s a lesbian, she’ll say that “as a child, her parents gave her gender neutral dolls to play with”!

  20. Vol.2 of Penny Arcade. :) I don’t play the video games, but I know enough to get the jokes.

  21. Thanks but I’ll pass on that one. :)

  22. Jeff

    Google should hire an actual hot chick that can act and then put a new spin on the term “I Feel Lucky”.

  23. Eli

    try typing in “ho”

  24. Harith

    Jeff

    “Google should hire an actual hot chick that can act…”

    No chick please. They no nothing about Google Datacenters, algo updates or how to file reinclusion requests, for example.

    Instead I suggest Adam Lasnik and his guitar :)

  25. Harith, buddy, you missed the boat completely there.

    Suppose you focus on the phrases “hot chick” and “I Feel Lucky”. Then look down between your legs. If you still wanna hear Lasnik play A-chord after that, there’s something wrong with all of us. ;)

  26. Jeff

    Apologies to Google…the phrase is actually “I’m Feeling Lucky”. I like that even better. Now if they would just implement this feature “properly” I would be feeling much more optimistic.

  27. Matt, you are the king of geeks!

  28. Vic

    Think they put any hidden Easter Eggs in place?

  29. Eli, “ho” does give a funny response. lol.

  30. According to IMDB, the name of the actor who plays the lead in the movie is Danny Sullivan.
    :o

  31. Danny, you dog! As if a career as Mondo Search Guru weren’t enough!

  32. Harith

    Multi-Worded Adam

    Did you know that at Googleplex they call Adam Lasnik as “Mr. Universal” :)

    martinibuster

    Btw, after the latest PubCon, Danny is refered to as; Danny “Innocent” Sullivan :)

    And “I feel lucky” this morning. Starting the day by filing a DMCA with Google ;)

  33. Anand

    lol. Matt you always pounce on Microsoft every chance you have. What about google being pwned today. No comments on this?? http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/archives/008122.html

    Here is Matt’s reply in case you haven’t noticed :)

  35. I have to say that since my site, mycoupons.com, actually shows up in a place I can find on live.com and NOT on google.com. I’m kinda liking this chick. :)

  36. Try something like “men” … funny!
    Try “Bill Gates”…somewhat funny!
    Try “Microsoft”…..arrr matey!
    Try “Boxing”….eh lame!
    Try “xbox 360″….halo rulez!!!
    Try “Yo” — this is so hilarious
    Try “bush” — hahaha

    Find her picture links here: http://www.technologymadness.com/?p=222

  37. Suppose you focus on the phrases “hot chick” and “I Feel Lucky”. Then look down between your legs. If you still wanna hear Lasnik play A-chord after that, there’s something wrong with all of us

    Oh, multi-worded Adam, what are you trying to say about my playing? Er, about me? :o

    I apparently play a pretty mean E major flat 9 sharp 13 chord ;)

    Oh, wait. Just saw the “hot chick” part. Nevermind.

  38. LMAO!

    I’ve never heard you play, but unless you’re Slash, SRV, one of the Young brothers (AC/DC before someone asks), or Knopfler (Dire Straits), you’re just not gonna compete with most hot chicks. ;)

  39. JohnMu

    M-W Adam: http://www.lasnik.net/music/

    Not bad, Adam, but time for an update :-).

  40. Heh, thanks, JohnMu, and yes… I definitely do need to post some updates there! :)

  41. Try something like “men” … funny!
    Try “Bill Gates”…somewhat funny!
    Try “Microsoft”…..arrr matey!
    Try “Boxing”….eh lame!
    Try “xbox 360″….halo rulez!!!
    Try “Yo” — this is so hilarious
    Try “bush” — hahaha

    Super!

  42. Okay, after review, a little silly, not hilarious.

    Is Die Hard a bad movie because of Hudson Hawk?

  43. isn’t cool ….google should try out with Mr Dewey he he…kidding…:)
