Hip Hop Remixes of Vintage Ads and Posters

April 7, 2014 | Marina Galperina

In “Ads Libitum,” French artist David Redon replaced Uncle Sam with André 3000 and Rosie the Riveter with Kanye West in classic American political posters. His vintage magazine ad remixes have these nice little hand-drawn details and meticulous digital flourishes, all for the sake of hip hop lyrics puns in an advertising context. Dirt Off Your Shoulders shampoo or So Fresh, So Clean! beauty bath, anyone? See them in the gallery above, with bonus mock ad featuring Lana Del Rey in the deep 1950’s, where she belongs. (Images: David Redon)
