Reader Matt Mittelstaedt says, "For the first time in 16 years, viewers of March Madness will not be able to bask in the greatness that is Gus Johnson. In remembrance of him, I ask you to promote the 'Unleash Gus' campaign, and use of the above picture for an avatar." Hot Clicks isn't going to launch a campaign because, quite simply, Gus works for Fox now and the tournament is on CBS and Turner. However, I do like the idea of remembering Gus at this time of year when he shined so bright, so the new avatar is in effect.

Jonah Hill Video Of The Day
Chad Larsen, of Eagan, Minn., says, "With Jonah Hill's first film as a skinny man, 21 Jump Street, opening tomorrow, my website FatJonahHill.com wrote a spoof of Adele's hit Someone Like You as Fat Jonah Hill singing to Skinny Jonah Hill about Skinny Jonah Hill's new image and how Fat Jonah feels left behind. I hope you like it!" How can I not like based on that explanation?
