Bob& Carol& Ted& Alice.

Now here’s a timely parody. It combines elements of a popular t-shirt from 2001 that’s already been parodied to death and a movie from 1969 about swingers that you probably haven’t seen.

But it’s been rattling in my head begging to be done, so here it is:

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice

Now, it’s possible this has already been done. I mean, what else in popular culture is already set up as four names with ampersands between them? It’s almost as though the movie title was meant for this parody. But if so, I couldn’t find it. However I’m pretty sure that my other idea for a Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice poster parody hasn’t been done. I couldn’t even bring myself to do it. It was going to be Bobby & Carol & Greg & Alice. Yeah, I know. (Bonus: just as timely!)

Interestingly, the original movie poster for the film was entirely typographical, having no photos or illustrations. Just the title repeated in Cooper Black with the tagline “consider the possibilities.”
