Michigan TE Jake Butt (!) parodies Kim Kardashian with Twitter avi

Friday November 14th, 2014

Michigan football player Jake Butt has a funny last name. Given that he plays tight end, his last name is even funnier.

And his last name also makes him the perfect person to parody Kim Kardashian and the body part for which she is famous.

Kardashian promised to "#BreakTheInternet" this week with her racy photo shoot for Paper magazine, which prominently featured her posterior. Butt took the opportunity to parody (honor?) the celebrity by changing his Twitter avatar to mark the occasion.

Whether Butt created the avatar himself or had someone do it for him, the result is spectacular. We like to think that Kardashian came to him with the idea to ensure that the Internet indeed becomes #broken, because it's fun to imagine a world where mega-celebrities team up with random college athletes for no good reason.

Here's one of Kardashian's photos for comparison's sake:

Butt, in case anyone cares, has 13 catches for 148 yards and a touchdown this season after returning from offseason surgery to repair a torn ACL.
