Clever Art Inspired by Pop Culture’s Fictional Products

Gallery1988's latest "Product Placement" show includes art inspired by 'Twin Peaks: The Return,' 'Halloween,' Harry Potter, and more.

“Product Placement” is one of the most venerable series at the pop culture-loving Gallery1988 — we shared images from the very first one, five long years ago — and for good reason: if you’ve watched Idiocracy enough times (if you can stand to these days), you might wonder what a print ad for Brawndo might look like, and they’ve commissioned artists to answer that question for you. This year’s edition runs through October 27 at their gallery in Los Angeles, but if you can’t make it (or need some motivation to do so), here are some of our very favorite images from the show.
