Only a Strong America can... by MugenB16 Only a Strong America can... by MugenB16
the theme here is "arrogance" and "satire"

Inspired by Fallout™ the video game :)

a modern take on the classic "buy war bonds" poster featuring uncle sam with a post apocalyptic twist. there's a couple nukes in there for good 'effect'....yes, only a strong america can "prevail"!!!

indoctrination pop style war culture from the 50's cold war era.

the truth is that no one wins in a nuclear war, but the propaganda machine doesn't want you to think that.

the closest to saying that Aryans (nazi master race) can survive a nuclear blast buck-naked.

nah man. plenty o ppl play(ed) it. what's sad is interplay's defunct and fallout3's been vaporware forever. now they're even talking about a MMO fallout....i saw the business docs but I highly doubt it'll even live up to par.

i'm a fallout and 50's-style fan, so i love this poster. but i think that also the 'political' message behind this poster (and behind fallout) is clear: the main risk to prove our force is being destroyed by it.
this is what i think.

I'm addicted to Fallout too - (well, technically to Fallout 2 :)); I don't really speak, I just make huge flating text appear above my head

(still keeping my fingers crossed for Fallout 3 by Bethesda :P)

great poster and illustration too.. even though the message is not so clear...

i don't get the meaning.. what does it try to get across to the audience ?

MugenB16 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2007
hmmmm...there isn't so much a meaning. it's more based on fallout. maybe I should move this to Fan Art instead, because people seem to over analyze it so much in political! hehe :hug: :aww:

it's based on "fallout" the game, post apocalyptic 1950's style.
