Someone saw this poster and just said “You know what, it’s time to open people’s eyes. No more of this passive consumerism. I will do for American moviegoers what Karl Marx’s Das Kapital did for the Russian peasantry. Everyone will come to see God’s true purpose for them on this Earth. Viewers of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your inability to make wise choices at the box office.” That’s what he said. Then he just made the poster say “Wet Fart” and stuck a pair of scissors in Anne Hathaway’s eye. But the intention was really really powerful.
