Full Description

John Carpenter's 1988 movie They Live is known for starring Rowdy Roddy Piper, having a great fight scene, one of the best quotes of all time and definitely the best involving kicking ass and chewing bubblegum, and sunglasses that allow the main character to see the grotesque aliens and their subliminal messages that surround him. It is not well known, however, that Shephard Fairey was inspired by the OBEY subliminal messages from the movie. Fairey went on to found the OBEY clothing line and he even had an influence on presidential politics with his HOPE poster, which was done in a style not different from his OBEY clothing line. As such, it's possible that They Live had an effect on the 2008 election. This They Live OBEY t-shirt shows a scene where the alien is visible in front of their subliminal OBEY sign.
