An ad agency has designed a new logo to represent the hope and change of Zer-0

"Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama's nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future,"'Let's try and start a movement where even while walking down the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for Obama,' " says Husong. Much thought went into the relatively simple idea. "You interlace your hands in a circle, the interlacing being a symbol of different types of people coming together and the circle a symbol of unity," he says. Their design, unlike Fairey's, is free, and Husong is urging people to download it and print it on posters and T-shirts. "We want to see it everywhere, but more importantly we want this sign to take the world by storm."

If elected we'll all be making that sign. Saying, the nation's asshole is now this big.

Much better. The only big O I ever heard of that was worth a crap was Oscar Robinson; a great black all-pro basketball player.

Here is the salute that now goes with the sign:


One Nation, Under a New Obama Salute
August 07, 2008 04:53 PM ET | Paul Bedard | Permanent Link

George Bush had his three-fingered W salute that supporters flashed when greeting him at presidential campaign events in 2000. And now, if a Los Angeles creative agency gets its way, Sen. Barack Obama will see fans meet him with his own salute like the one above. "Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama's nomination speech holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility for our future," says Rick Husong, owner of The Loyalty Inc. Husong tells me that he got the idea after seeing the famous Obama-Progress poster by artist Shepherd Fairey. "We wanted to get involved some way," he says. So, the agency came up with their own a symbol of hope and progress that also plays off Obama's name. "We thought, 'Let's try and start a movement where even while walking down the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for Obama,' " says Husong. Much thought went into the relatively simple idea. "You interlace your hands in a circle, the interlacing being a symbol of different types of people coming together and the circle a symbol of unity," he says. Their design, unlike Fairey's, is free, and Husong is urging people to download it and print it on posters and T-shirts. "We want to see it everywhere, but more importantly we want this sign to take the world by storm."

My Creepiness Meter is now firmly pegged at "Dear God!". :eek:

Yup, someone has studied proper propaganda art quite well. The style jumped out before I even had the whole picture in the screen.

Poo washes off . However, Democ. operatives that get arrested for slashing Repub.vehicles tires is criminal rather than a prank. Now that is some low down shitz learned in the Hood.

Followers using hand signs to salute their political leader? Yea, I have seen that before.

Has anyone, EVER, seen any political leader ask his followers to use a hand signal to salute him since then?
