Venezuela president Hugo Chavez unwittingly wears Mickey ears

Picture 1-164 Venezuela president Hugo Chavez doesn't even realize he's wearing Mickey ears, but look at how happy he is. Maybe Rupert Sheldrake is onto something. Do you think the photographer was aware of the background when he/she shot the photo?Link

  1. “el Terrorismo mediático, una fotografía cuya composición es un intento de burlarse de la imagen del Presidente Chávez.”

    oh, COME ON now!

  2. Well, at least in the brazilian newspapers they were joking about it right from the start. I would say the photographer knew exactly what he was doing.

  3. “el Terrorismo mediático, una fotografía cuya composición es un intento de burlarse de la imagen del Presidente Chávez.”

    “Media terrorism, a photography whose composition is an attempt to mock the image of President Chávez”

    yup… as if there wasn’t already enough material to mock him…

  4. I recently watched this interesting video:

    THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED DIRECTED AND PHOTOGRAPHED BY KIM BARTLEY AND DONNACHA O’BRIAIN IRELAND, 2003 74 MINUTES

    It is the kind of thing that you if you can read between the lines and know a little about past US involvement and CIA ops in other countries, it is obvious why certain events happened the way they did in Venezuela. I’m actually surprised we have not seen more efforts recently from the US in that country. any thoughts?

  5. Not soon after the Disney company lobbied/paid the US government to attack Venezuela because of copyright infringement, even though the real target would have been the photographer or Reuters editor. Politics as usual.

    I find the image funny and refreshing. It portrays Chavez as a positive figure.
