I intend to add a more comical flavor to the original Obama Hope poster by integrating the famous Yao Ming face. The Yao Ming face is integrated with the help of LunaPic. The picture is based on a stillshot photograph of Yao Ming captured from a post-game press conference in May 2009. Yao Ming’s smile soon went viral on the Internet. Because the smile was both hearty and sarcastic, many memes were generated revolving the ideas of carelessness and sneering. I think in combining Yao Ming’s smile, the poster now has an ironic sense which makes it more of a meme: is there hope, or is there not?
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
