So… I actually composed this meme back in January, in time for the Inauguration… but recent events have made it perhaps even more relevant today so I’m finally getting around to putting it on the blog. I still have a lot of stuff that I’ve done this year that never managed to make it to the blog, but I’m starting to try and catch up!
I did post this on Facebook back then, to mixed reactions… including at least one Donald Trump supporter who didn’t “get it” apparently. I thought it was a pretty good parody of the Independence Day movie poster, juxtaposed with reaction to last year’s Presidential election here in the US. Nothing super-profound or anything… just an obvious jab. 🙂 It’s a mixture of bits from the original movie poster and some heads of appropriate political figures (Mike Pence, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin) that I found on the Internet to mash-up together in Photoshop.

Profound apologies to Frosty the Snowman… but last month I had this idea for a Christmas mash-up… inspired by true events, ripped from the headlines as they say. 🙂 I wanted to get this one up before the holiday weekend and in honor of today being the day the Electoral College casts votes for the presidency.
The little things please me the most. I like how the magic twinkle effect around Donny is bringing him to life after the magical toupee is placed upon his head… and I like how disturbed that little girl truly looks. Her look in particular was referenced from the actual proper cartoon where she is cold and shivering while Frosty is seeking to save her from the cold at his own peril. I though that expression worked well here in this context. Meanwhile, Donny’s dialog is a riff on how Frosty always exclaimed, “Happy Birthday” every time he was brought to life. Donny says something far more tragic every time he comes to life. 🙂
