Mostly taken from the detritus filled backseat of a speeding passenger car, here’s a quick roundup of Americana:
1. Anthropomorphic Food Mascots (a la Mr. Taco)
2. Big Big Big
3. Poorly Executed Advertising. Ambiguity + Ads = Super Creepy.
4. Tacky, unnecessary ridiculousness. “Really honey, I think we need a tree face!”
5. Big Food Shrines. Not just a cheese barn, but a cheese castle.
6. Big Food Signs.
[I’m a total sucker for anything adorned with a 20+ foot tall he-man/woman]
