The Coffee Shop – Campaign Art

The Coffee Shop is an open thread-style discussion forum for human interest news of the day.

From Slate:

When Barack Obama ran for president in 2008, an art piece by Shepard Fairy became synonymous with his campaign. Campaign art isn’t new, but in the era of social media, these unsolicited works have become much more visible—as reflective in their own way of a campaign’s personality as its official slogans…  Click through to continue reading and to view Slate’s video – What Is the Bernie Sanders Aesthetic?

The art featured in Slate’s article and its accompanying video is related to the Bernie Sanders campaign.  But let’s expand on this — what is your favorite campaign art (including videos) from any campaign, current or past?

This is an open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments.  If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet.  Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.

  1. My favorite so far is a parody video:

    Actually I think most parodies of this particular song are better than the original 😉

  2. It’s amazing how much of our music is about body parts. These days some people think that admiring an obese persons body is a feminist statement. Maybe its the best we can do now.

  3. Good evening, dxp. I think the lyrics of the original song are great; people should be able to exalt in whatever form our bodies happen to take. The turn-off for me was the artist.

  4. I think she has a talented voice. I”m not that offended really. I just think it would be nice if we focused on something else for once.
