Crunch Gym's Nirvana Rip-Off Propaganda.

You know I am a big fan of propaganda, but I like a little accuracy with it.  I’ve also found that propaganda tastes better when you wash it down with a glass of wine.  Anyway, the above image is an ad for the over-priced gym Crunch’s 21st anniversary.  They are celebrating the fact that they’ve been able to get away with ripping people off for over 2 decades because they have a flashy logo and the same gym equipment you can use at a club for under half of Crunch’s membership price, but the difference is (and this is what you are paying all that extra money for), Crunch gym employed a marketing firm to put up propaganda all over the streets�of New York to entice suckers people.  As you can see above, they not so cleverly ripped off the album art work for Nirvana’s “Nevermind” album which was released in 1991.

The morons that created this propaganda campaign used the below image to rip off The Clash’s “London Calling” album which was released in 1977, predating the existence of Crunch gym, for this 21st anniversary ad campaign!  They couldn’t find an album cover to rip-off that was in the same time frame as the gym?!

 Dear Crunch Gym, please hire a team of propaganda artists that fact check before they make your company look even worse.  Sincerely, G.
