WIN: Colbert's Poster
“Last night, Stephen Colbert revealed The Colbert Report's official poster for the Vancouver Olympics, created by Shepard Fairey,” says Comedy Central Insider, before suggesting that “now it's time for you to take action and show your support by downloading the poster, printing it out and plastering it all over Vancouver.”
And honestly, even though it calls for a total American victory at these Olympic games, I can’t say I don’t think plastering Vancouver with it is a terrible idea. Because it. is. awesome. Uh… as you can see.
Comedy Central Insider continues…
Please be sure to observe all local laws and ordinances regarding the posting of bills. I repeat, do not murder anyone with this poster!
Can't make it to Vancouver? Well, you can still show your support for Stephen by changing your Facebook and Twitter icons to this scaled-down version of the poster and Tweeting the hashtag #SkateExpectations.
Again, please observe all locals laws and ordinances regarding the Tweeting of hashtags.
Fairey, of course, is the artist who designed the ubiquitous Obama Hope poster, and before that, the famous OBEY art featuring Andre the Giant. Will a torch-bearing Colbert riding an eagle be embraced the way those two works were? I, for one, can only hope…
