Tomorrow we’ve got a pair of new posters from Oliver Barrett for John Carpenter’s brilliant and subversive examination of consumerism: THEY LIVE.

Based on Ray Nelson’s short story, “Eight O’Clock in the Morning”, Carpenter’s film presents a world where the ruling class are secretly aliens controlling the masses with subliminal messages, and one bubble-gum loving drifter who sees through it all and rages against the machine. Science fiction without the fiction.

Fellow bubble-gum loving badass Oliver Barrett deftly crushed it with these posters. They are a beautiful ode to one of Carpenter’s signature films.

DO NOT QUESTION AUTHORITY. Champion your own slavishness to capitalism and please your overlords by adding these posters to your walls. Or don’t and keep telling yourself you won’t be controlled.

BUY this poster on Thursday, June 2 at 11AM CT on The Drop at mondoshop.com.
