Since he is sharing the prize with a Japanese researcher, Sir Gurdon has been appearing on Japanese television a lot—and so has his magnificent hair. Artist Akira Yasuda, better known by his pen name Akiman, does his spin on the British scientist by remixing him with another man known for amazing hair.

How awesome is it to see Akiman, Street Fighter II's artist, turn this Nobel Prize winner into Guile?
