CRAP #1: PARODY ADS, $2, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 10pgs.

May 15, 2023

As the title suggests, this is a short collection of parody ads, seemingly made in a combination of photocopy, cut-and-paste, rubber-stamping, and hand-drawing with typewriter text filling in the gaps. If you’ve ever made a crass pun about a brand name, Krapp has certainly had the same thought—only difference is, they made it a reality. They’re pretty funny, and you’ve gotta respect the commitment to the bit. Short and sweet. –jimmy cooper (123 Washington Ave., Apt C, Batavia, NY 14020)
