I found these conspiracy theory model kits online and got a laugh out of them so I thought I'd pass it on. Unfortunately they're not real kits, but
were created just for print ads.
Here's a link to the ad agency named Ogilvy & Mather that created them:
Some pretty clever people, they took some of the basic conspiracy theory stuff and had some fun with it in a pretty creative and humorous way.
Produced as print ads for Japanese plastic model kit company Tamiya, the kits illustrate the conspiracy theories surrounding such figures as Elvis
and Marilyn Monroe; the mystery of JFK’s assassination and such incidents as Roswell and the contentious moon landings.
That quote is from the site where I found this stuff at, here's the link:
Here's the "Roswell Kit"
The one thing I don't get about this one is the pig at the bottom. Cattle mutilation maybe?
Here's the "Moon Landing Kit"
I thought this one was one of the funniest ones, while I've never been one to buy into the whole moon landing was a hoax thing I am fairly well
versed on how the conspiracy theories go, that's why I thought this was one of the funniest ones. Check out the film set stuff, now look at the
director, if I'm not mistaken that's Stanley Kubrick, that's classic! The big bag of money, hilarious!
I thought these two were the best, but check out the link to see the other ones. I thought the Marylin and Elvis ones were pretty funny too, I
thought the JFK one was kinda sad, just cause it had Jackie O and John John in there.
I don't know if I put this in the right forum or not, sorry if I screwed up.
