For those of you who have dreams of being a legitimate Buddy Holly look-a-like and not just another poseur in plastic frames, your big day has finally arrived (kind of). In celebration of the rock ’n’ roll icon’s 75th birthday September 7, a new Web app has been created that allows you to place Holly’s signature black frames over photos of your choice. Go here, upload your photos and get glass-y.
But the fun does not stop there. The good people at Fantasy, who brought you the acclaimed Rave On Buddy Holly tribute compilation album, are also giving fans the chance to place the birthday boy on any website they want. By adding the URL http://buddyrul.es/ in front of any other site address, you can instantly see an image of Holly in his heyday on your favorite Internet locales. Imagine how much more exciting your day will be when Buddy Holly pops up on your Facebook page.
