Make People Happy

23 Sep

Cost: $5

Time: 1 hour

Materials: Printer or markers, paper, tape, paint/spray paint

 

My good friend Matt needed something to distract him and keep him busy while he was quitting smoking.  Some people might play video games or go to the movies, but Matt’s a special guy.  Matt made a giant poster that consisted of 112 sheets of paper featuring some of the most beloved characters from early 90’s sitcoms and the words “We Love You.”  He hung the poster above the entrance to his school’s food court and doubtlessly brightened countless people’s day.  His next project?  A 20×20 Patrick Swayze memorial.  I’m inspired to make my own guerilla happy poster and hang it in Knoxville.

    Awesome! My Facebook status today is, “Everything cool happened in the 90’s.” Awesome coincidence.

    If you’re going for guerilla posters in Knoxville… there’s one site you should look at before going out on your rampage. It’s time you got RASTERBATED!!!!

    Throw in the photo / artwork of your choice, and then the rasterbator does the rest. It breaks up your image into blocks, arranges them on a billion 8.5″ x 11″ sized pieces of paper for printing, and then all you have to do is tape ’em together in order and hang it up. Ka-pow… you’ve got a 10′ tall poster of your face across the front door of the Hilton.

    The last one I did was a massive picture of “Booger” from “Revenge of the Nerds.”
