Scroll through your Facebook account and doubtless there are dozens of your “friends” with profile pictures which have been Obamicized like the picture above of my dog Guiness.
These so-called friends of yours need to stop. They need to switch back to their previous profile picture…the picture in which they look fabulous but are trying too hard to be unaware how fabulous they look, as if they haven’t already deleted the other two dozen horrible photos of the day they went base-jumping or kayaking or met one of the cast members of “Real World: Brooklyn.”
Whatever they do, just stop going to Obamicon.me and uploading your photo into their template and creating an image in a style inspired byShepard Fairey’s iconic poster. Because you are deflating the historical value of the original image. YOU’RE RUINING IT! I don’t want to see your face superimposed on the Gilbert Stuart portrait of George Washington. And I wish you all would stop defacing what should have been a sacred image.
