Back in the 80s, movie review duo Siskel & Ebert became legends for introducing a revolutionary technique for simplified cultural critique. Gone was the bewildering “four star” system. Instead, every movie came in one of two flavors: “Thumbs Up” or “Thumbs Down.” Like everything awesome, “Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down” has gone digital lately, making us all mini-Eberts — casting judgment on all that passes before us from the comfort of our desks. It’s a revolutionary device with two major flaws: In this brave new world, we can only “like” things and we can only do so digitally.
Well, we’ve solved both those problems with our latest product, the Like & Dislike Stamps! Preloaded with enough ink for 5,000 assertions, the stamps give you the ability to emphatically thwack your opinion on tangible objects … in the real world. Second season of LOST on DVD? Dislike! Sarah Palin on the cover of US Magazine? Dislike! Cease and desist letters? Dislike! Parking tickets? Dislike! Pictures of kittens? Dislike! Honestly, we’re critical of most things so don’t pay attention to us.
Born from a collaboration between the Jailbreak Collective and Nation Studio in the UK, the Like & Dislike Stamps are a formidable duo of approval and distaste. Physically sharing your opinion? What a throwback!
