    this past sunday i sawa huge 'obey giant' poster in the family guy episode.
    here's why:

    (excerpt from seth mcfarlane interview)
    CR: Here's a random one: I know you went to the Rhode Island School of Design. Did you know Shepard Fairey when you were there? Do you know who he is? He's the street artist who puts up all those signs around town that say 'Obey Giant'?
    SM: Oh that guy!
    CR: That guy!
    SM: Yeah, he was there when I was there! I don't think I actually knew him. But he was there when I was there, and it's amazing because those things originated when he was in school there and now they're everywhere.
    CR: I was just wondering, because he's the other big Rhode Island School of Design guy. That's cool though, that you went to school with him. You can use *that* as a pick up line!
    SM: Sure, sure, Hey, I went to school with that Andre the Giant Obey Guy!

    Haha, yeah I saw that. I wonder if Shepard Fairy paid money to put that in there. I mean, that's a kind of gag that you'd normally see him drawing a bunch of faces or a big picture of himself. The Obey picture is just random as hell.

    Yeah shepard fairey is a fag. I guess its cool he made that obey shit so big but the fact that he copied it from a movie is lame. plus he deejays at his own shows. pretty fruity.

    why are you hating. the man gets up probably more than any writer or "street/guerilla artist" like buffmonster, london police, "dave", and all them other cats. and i thought he copied that andre the giant thing from a news article, just the face though. all that other shit is his original idea. and whats wrong with dj'ing at your own show? the man is killin two birds with one stone.

    Damn seth went to RISD, fuck. I've been thinking of getting my masters there.

    Oh and to CitezenRobot:

    "Other big Rhode Island School of Design guy." You are fucking kidding me,
    way to discredit yourselves. Sure Shepard is famous but Seth is a pair of
    fucking clown shoes when put next to the countless other design greats to
    come from RISD. Gosh darn fools you are.
