There’s tonnes of boring, ugly and photoshopped election posters all around the country in aid of all this #GE11 nonsense. But one stood out in particular to me as I drove through Summerhill onto the North Circular Road in Dublin. A candidate we can stand behind, neigh a candidate we can believe in.
He was the Wrestler, the bad guy in Iron Man 2 and an Expendable. Now, could he be an Taoiseach na hÉireann? Probably not. But I genuinely burst out laughing when I saw his Vote No.1 poster in support of German lager Bavaria.
There’s a great ad to go with the campaign showing Rourke being duped into drinking non-alcholic Bavaria in a swanky New York hotel. Which you can check out below. Really like this campaign, perfect timing although the poster may not completely fit with the billboards it worked for me.
