They Live

A classic anti-consumerist, super cheesy sci-fi vid from 1988. Shepard Fairey used it as inspiration for his "Obey" poster work. This was a serious banger for skate-punks back in the early 90s. It's very dated now but still worth a look. If anything, the manipulation of our desires has only gotten worse. Takes about a minute and a half to get going, so stay with it.

I have come to chew bubble gum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubble gum. More of a two liner than a one liner but classic none the less.

Dude, I watched this so many times with my dad when I was a little kid. Rowdy Rowdy Pipper! I never put it together that our level of consumerism is like being ruled by aliens.
