So this is more or less a sequel to Jermaine’s 2003 Pay Attention! Poster, complete with plenty of defaced versions and even a tough-to-get process set. Again, the detail here is almost overwhelming and tells a story of a dsytopian future fun my network media wherein the masses appear to be controlled with only a few poor souls realizing what is going on. The color palette is also similar but slightly different from the ’03 poster. And once again it’s basically a visual Radiohead song – take your time with it. There’s plenty to see. The Protektor from the first poster is back and check out Obama and Hilary on the left there.
