irritated by small town life

I watched the video below (via Erica) today on two occasions: once without sound and once with. Without sound, I immediately noticed the familiar sight of the “Sunset Motel” from my many years and now many visits to my hometown of Sedalia, Missouri.

And then I watched the video:

America Is F*cked…….(Graphically at least) from Jess Gibson on Vimeo.

And now I’m in love with this guy. He buys a sign off eBay while drunk, takes a three day drive to Sedalia, hires a sign company to take it apart, and then becomes insanely angry. And for good reason.

Impact Sign, the place that came up with the shitty logo that involves some “fancy gradients” and a color scheme from Miami Vice, is a company that, as far as I know, has put up some pretty shitty signs. According to their website, they’ve put up signs for places like Big Lots and Culligan water, but we all know some tiny ass company in the middle of Missouri didn’t come up with the original designs of those particular signs. They also design fancy things like stock car stickers and ridiculously ugly decorations to put on your farm trucks. But you know what my favorite is? This one:

That’s some fancy shit right there. I’m going to make it my personal mission to find this large hunk of shit when I go home for Thanksgiving. Then I’m going to take a picture of it and quite possibly pee on it.

What's up?
