Obama Parody Posters
I'm no fan of Obama. However, I am quickly becoming a fan of his iconic Shepard Fairey poster and all of the parodies it has inspired.
While there were the obvious anti-Bush and McCain posters, the parodies I most admire are a little less on target.
Some parodies were simply inspired by words that rhyme with "hope".
Ah, good 'ole Slick Willie is always good for a joke.
I feel like Benedict could work with this...
You gotta love this reference to a classic (if somewhat obscure) sitcom.
Looking at the top rated posters at Obamicon, I found a couple of great takes off of the "Yes We Can" poster:
There must some "KHAAAAAAANNN!" Obama poster out there, right?
Other poster parodies aren't quite so obvious:
A nice sentiment, but, uh, okay.
You know, that's exactly what this country needs!
But, to paraphrase Nigel Tufnel, only if it goes up to eleven.
This poster totally makes the Soup Nazi look like some fashionable South American dictator, don't you think?
I think I'm pretty pop culture savvy, but I don't get this one at all. I know that's the late, lamented Andre the Giant. But what's the posse?
I used to love Bill the Cat and Bloom County. Hmmm....that also makes me want to see a Calvin and/or Hobbes Obama poster.
Give 'em hell, Cash!
Finally, I've sooo saved the best for last. I love this image so much that it's now my Facebook profile picture. Now someone just needs to make a Shepard Fairey poster for the Snuggie!

|Damn, and I thought I was clever coming up with the Nigel Tufnel one. Same picture, even. Beaten to the punch again! |
