Shepard Fairey’s ‘They Live’ Poster Is An Awesomeness Conspiracy

Thursday, June 9 by
 

Artist Shepard Fairey (Exit Through The Gift Shop) brought us the now famous “Hope” poster that helped put President Obama in the White House. But does Fairey now believe that the president is also a secret alien? If I were to read way too much into this poster, I would say, “yes… formaldehyde-face!”

The man who asks us to “Obey” via stickers illustrated a new poster for John Carpenter‘s They Live, the 1988 sci-fi/horror/comedy about Rowdy Roddy Piper discovering that the ruling elite are all alien life forms. My sources tell me that David Icke watches it every weekend. Check out the poster below. The Alamo Drafthouse, a place you’d be wise not to text in, is screening the film Thursday night in Austin. They collaborated with art boutique Mondo to bring Fairey on-board.

    Appropriate being that he got “OBEY” from They Live. It all comes full circle.
