    Epic Fake Smithsonian ads make History come alive

    Two design artists came up with “Historically Hardcore” Ads a lovingly crafted series of ads for the Smithsonian that one-up the exploits of modern-day rockers and rappers with tales of historic figures, well, being hardcore

    The Ads are here: Link

    Interestingly the smithsonian hates them and says it ruins their brand reputation^^

    Those are pretty great. I can see why the Smithsonian wouldn't like them though since they don't exactly fit with their image.

    But why keep an image directed at people how already like going their? You need to get some new crowds in who wouldn´t consider a visit as a good opportunity to spend your past time. except in the UK where museums are free to visit

    Shattarath is kinda pretty but outside is a technicolor nightmare that looks like someone tied horses to the contrast slider and fired a rifle

    Image or no image, they should use those. Just call it "appealing to a new demographic".
