WTF: Portraits of Pop Culture Icons as Fruits and Vegetables

We see a lot of surprising, artistic portraits of and tributes to pop-culture icons here at Flavorpill. But lately, it seems like things are starting to get a little weird. Last week, we posted some baffling pictures of celebrities as Simpsons characters. And now, we’ve stumbled upon a whole set of images by the Argentine clothing company Verdura that morphs celebrities and movie characters with fruits and vegetables. Yup, there’s Harry Potter as a chili pepper and The Beatles as peanuts. Oddest of all, in our opinion, is “Lady Ga-Garlic.” It’s a well-executed project, certainly, but… why? Puzzle over the images for yourself after the jump.
