Jim Groom Art or #jimgroomart was started by the noiseprofessor, Zach Dowel. Your job, is to take any gif and replace any person, animal or object's face with Jim Groom's face. Be creative with it... it doesn't have to be flattering. Aside from the one I submitted done by myself, here is another one by the esteemed professor himself: http://www.noiseprofessor.org/?p=850

Jim Groom art bandwagon, just because!

Everyone is having a blast with the Jim Groom art assignment, and I decided that I should crash that party.
I found the original gif here, and the clip is from an anime called Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki.
