Junior Banksy?

Someone seems to be timing the re-issue of the Banksy film with some new art of the same style.

Regardless of who did it, what do you make of the message?

(Thanks for spotting and sending, reader Dave!)

Update: Another one spotted on Lexington at 19th. (Thanks Jeannine!)

    There’s also another on 19th and Lex that says “New daddy bought me a vampire boyfriend”. <3 it!!

    the image is of JFK Jr. saluting his dad’s coffin. See http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d1/Kennedy_salute.gif

    done in poor taste imo.

      Right, we know who. But who is his new daddy?

    • olu says:

      too soon? still fresh, huh?

      • bodah says:

        to draw humor from the events surrounding the assignation of an American President (you are an American citizen right?), even if tangentially and/or implicitly, is in poor taste.

        What if someone had a stencil of the World Trade Center Towers (one on fire, and the other with a plane smashing into it) and the caption read: “New I-Banker bought me ….” Poor taste.

      • Ariel Dovas says:

        Really? There are these things called satire, dark humor, etc. Not that I totally agree that this is trying to draw humor.

        Sometimes we need to poke fun at things a bit to get to a better understanding of the situation. I feel weird even having to explain this.

      • Plus, y’know. Almost 50 years ago. The Scale of Bad Taste vs. Age ratio rules…. A-OK!

      • bodah says:

        @dovas: call them what you like (“dark humor, satire, etc.”) but all those things can be done in bad taste. Explain to me how poking fun of Kennedy’s assignation is shedding better light on the situation?

        You should feel weird, not for having to explain something (ever really), but for your inability to understand that reasonable people can find this stencil to be in poor taste.

      • I’m with Ariel on this. Time to let it go. It’s just not in bad taste.

        Now, if it was a stencil of Kennedy’s head with a Cross-hairs on it or something? Then maybe we could talk. Although, even then… One guy, 47 years ago. Let it go.

    I’ve been trying to figure it out with no success so far, but I’ve slipped the term “new daddy” into several conversations this week.

    My take is always that Kucinich must be working his
    way toward a graceful exit from your campaign and prevent being a joke or maybe, more
    a joke My Website a spokesman said vertice will monitor market conditions
    and reintroduce products as conditions be a little more favorable.
