ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A calendar of men posing with 1970s cars while wearing underpants is said to be a big hit in Germany. You may view this calendar in its entirety online. [h/t The Awl]
“[S]aid to be a big hit in Germany…”
So was Knight Rider. Take from that what you will.
What?! No morning glory in May?
I thought this was vintage 70’s photos, but it’s modern photos/models with old cars. Not half as cool.
On the contrary, i find this return to an older aesthetic quite cool. Much cooler than simply reprinting some old photos.
I wouldn’t mind if modern ads began to resemble those from the seventies… I find their aesthetic and basic marketing approach much more endearing than the bland manipulative soul-sucking dross we tend to get nowadays.
Photo #8 Dude: NO, just no.
So, Cory, you’re saying the pants calender isn’t pants, eh?
/paging René Magritte! White Courtesy Telephone, please.
Bizarre? Not at all: it’s just German hipsters.
I’m pretty sure my aunt used to drive the Citroen from the May photo. Probably not the very self-same one, but I suppose you never can tell…
Cory is gay? That explains all the damn bananas.
So, Julian Assange escapes in a Citroën DS and a pair of hot pants in May this year. Looking forward to it.
