Very heavily inspired by the teaser trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Episode 2 - I saw the little bust of Metal and realized it was a lot like many emblems and images hackers put on defaced webpages. He's a super-robot, so naturally he'd be good at hacking... and he wants to take over the world as an overlord, so why not start by conquering computers?
The idea here is that this is what you see when he's just hacked into your computer and taken control. The background graphics are supposed to be a sort of visual interpretation of him breaching your firewall. Might've gone a bit overboard with some of the text, but it was fun to write. Who knows? Maybe I'll make a story about this!
Also! It's mostly covered up by the flames, but the binary does in fact spell something out, the message (with a bit of vulgarity censored so I can avoid a warning) is:
I Am Your New Master Now
You Fail Sucker
Totally pointless, but it amused me.
So... WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT HAPPENED TO YOU!?
