Fun Friday – The Boss Button

A trend I’ve noticed on a few sites is the”Boss Button” – a button you can click on when browsing a Web site and disguise your screen as something productive. Not that I would ever need to do such a thing…but many brands out there have quirky personalities and this could be just the thing to enhance the user experience.

CBS Sports has apparently done this for years and this year had Scott Adams design one for the March Madness NCAA Basketball video streaming app:

The popular football forum on Football365.com also has one:

I love this sort of idea…are there any other sites where you’ve seen this?

My former colleague and gracious host Paul Borge points us to the SkyBet.com boss button:
