Check Check It
So there's the very cool and elegant iPod campaign, with silhouettes of people rockin' and jivin' against bold, vivid colors, with the white little iPod and its white earphones highly visible. The images are so distinctive, they've called out for remixes.
I'm sure there are many out there. The ones that caught my eye:
iGod - This came out in the wake of the The Passion, a recent movie by some guy named Mel Gibson, about some chap named Jesus. You know, the one in Latin and Aramaic. (Or was it just Aramaic?)
Strip, Pix, Burn: iRaq - You might have heard about the torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib, committed by our own people. One way to respond is to be extremely ashamed and pissed off about it. Another is to mash an iconic image of the evil that men and women do with the imagery of a highly successful ad campaign. And then put posters of it around New York City.
