Fake It ‘Till You Make It

…or make a fake.

Many students put together art work for brands that they admire. Art student Jenny Burrows and copy-writer Matt Kappler decided to create some fake ads for the Smithsonian. They thought it would be a great idea to compare historic figures with the pop icons of today.

What resulted is sheer brilliance… however, according to BostInnovation, the Smithsonian didn’t agree. They requested that their logo be removed from the art work.

BOO! I did some further investigation on the internet, and these ads have been getting a absolute ton of attention and praise. The Smithsonian has done itself a huge disservice by trying to disassociate themselves with this great, poignant and engaging creative. Great work, Jenny and Matt.
