Munk's Junk (Everything Else), Television

As Thanksgiving gave way to Christmas and then to New Years, I began to notice that our Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys posters in the subways were being modified.  I found this almost as much of a kick as the posters themselves and so, as touching coda to season one, Elisa and I present some of our favorite “improvements” on Miles Aldridge’s memorable ad campaign.

Note the “FAG HAGS” scribble in the center “O”!

    This anti-campaign is brilliance personified. I am inpsired to find a poster unaltered. You’ve been forwarned!
