Overly Suave IT Guy is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a man seated in front of a laptop computer and various pick up lines combined with technical references to IT diagnostics and troubleshooting. The character can be seen as a variation on the geeky pick up artist stereotype, which includes several other advice animals like Dat Ash, Priority Peter and Pickup Line Scientist.
