(Art) Motivational posters

24th August 2007 (01:35)
Tags: ,

Since I already had Photoshop open tonight...

What do you get if you mix together Angel and The Princess Bride? Motivational posters, that's what!

#1
Oi, Connor. You're doing it wrong.


#2
While you do that, I'll wait right here...


#3
Actually, that word does mean what I think it means.


#4
Land war in Asia? Check.


#5
Well, he's probably a Sicilian demon.


#6
Nope. Course not.


#7
Yes. Yes we do.

Edit: For the benefit of those with less capable different browsers, this is what the mouseover text says:
#1  Oi, Connor, you're doing it wrong.
#2  While you do that, I'll wait right here...
#3  Actually, that word does mean what I think it means.
#4  Land war in Asia? Check.
#5  Well, he's probably a Sicilian demon.
#6  Nope. Course not.
#7  Yes. Yes we do.

*snerk* These are fun!

Is one of the classic blunders Angel's hair in that scene?

It's the red-lined cloak. Angelus has been reading too much Bram Stoker... :-)

(Have you tried hovering your mouse over the pictures, incidentally?)

Glad you liked...

Giggles helplessly

Is it OK if I print them out for my office wall? Can't do the mouseovers, alas. Very clever. Thanks so much.

Re: Giggles helplessly

Be my guest. Thanks! I'll edit the main entry to add what the mouseovers say.

I was somewhat calm until #4, by which point I started laughing so hard I began worrying about waking the children!

Buffyverse + Princess Bride = Total win!

(And now I worry that I'll never be able to watch Connor without giggling uncontrollably.)

You could before? ;-)

Thanks!

Well before I didn't hear him say 'You killed my father! Prepare to die!' in a Spanish accent...

For this, I award you the dancing Joss:



These are absolutely hilarious. I really need to rewatch The Princess Bride soon.

(Hint, though; the ALT tag doesn't really work for Firefox users. TITLE does (well, should do) the trick for both IE and Firefox.)

Aw. A wee little dancing man! Thanks!

(I've edited the main post to show the mouseover text).

BTW, don't vampires count as ROUSes?

ROUSes? I don't think they exist...

Combining two of my favourite things genius.

See you need to work in the wine tasting scene, now desperately wracking my brain to think of an Angel or Buffy scene.

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)

Thanks!

Do you mean the iocane powder poisoned wine scene? (I'm trying to think of any other scenes that involve wine). Because that's where the land war in Asia/Sicilian ones come from.

Otherwise, the problem with that scene is that there aren't any other really short obvious quotes that could go on a poster - the whole point of Vizzini is how long-winded he is...

"INCONTHEVABLE!" FTW!

But they're all marvelous!

#3 probably is the most subtle (not that any of them are particularly subtle...) Thanks!

A WINNAR IS YUO.

I would also totally support Buffyverse/Spinal Tap.

*Doffs hat, bows*-.

Only problem with that suggestion is that I've not seen that film, and the only quote I'd recognise is the one about the amp going up to 11...

Posted at: 24th August 2007 14:36 (UTC)

Did you use any particular Photoshop template for these? I'd be happy to give Spinal Tap a go... (though seriously, you need to see it.)

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 24th August 2007 15:02 (UTC)

I made my own template - if you want a go, I've saved it here.
