Day of Hanksy Part 3: You had me at Jello
Welcome back to today’s Hanksy-blogathon!
The third in our series: You had me at Jello!
This was literally around the corner from the Ice Ice Babies piece. I almost didn’t see it because the cop car was parked there (cop was eating lunch inside) and was partially blocking my view of it.
It’s Bill Cosby, in one of his infamous stupid sweaters, holding up a spraycan and taking that infamous line from Jerry Maguire three times around the dancefloor. Some of you may not be old enough to remember, but in the 1980s, Bill Cosby was the spokesman for Jello Pudding Pops (the commercials were really annoying), hence the Jello.
as you can see, the piece is half covered up, and also really badly damaged.
but this is what it looked like four months ago. This is what it’s supposed to look like! (photo from Hanksy’s Tumblr)
and instead, this is what it looks like now. BOO-URNS.
or as Cosby might say, “zippity bippity bo boppity floppity-urns.”
