Wednesday Waffler: AIDS Walk New York

This poster has an eye-catching simplicity that I appreciate. But after the first glance I can’t help but think it’s a huge pile of mixed metaphors. The ribbon itself is symbolic of something. Layer in a classic heart shape... OK, not bad. Then add a stem to make it a Big Apple... now you’re pushing it. And I guess the hands represent people joining in, but last I checked, an AIDS walk is more about feet.

  1. A 49/51 split? This really is a waffler!

    I say sh*tty. There is just too much crap going on here. I don't understand the strange elongated alien hands at all--if they were meant to represent a show of solidarity, you'd think they'd be clasped together rather than all reaching separately, I assume to rip apart the ribbon-heart-apple. God, what a mess.
