When you have the right subject, that is. I made this ad parody – it came to me driving to work on Thursday:
Anyone remember the “got milk?” billboard ads? I made this this morning in The Gimp. I have zero skills in the way of graphics and it partially shows.
The image I used is part of a frame from Hercule Yakko. No matter what I did, I could not find this exact angle anywhere but this scene. The problem is that in the original scene, her hair was partially behind the scenery (a door) on the right side (her hand is outstretched, leaning on the door). I had to crop out the door and do something to put her hair back. While it doesn’t look HORRIBLE, I’m not satisfied. If someone can give me some Gimp tips to make that bit of her hair just above and to the right of her right shoulder look more natural, I’d be grateful. (That and I can’t find a DVD that has Hercule Yakko on it so I had to use the YouTube vid with its terrible FLV compression. I did my best to clean up her colors but her lines are still pleh – if anyone has a higher-resolution version of this frame (she’s just opened the door after Yakko knocked – this is the last frame of the slow pan-up before she repositions herself – I picked this one because she’s cute and tease-y without being over-the-top seductive which is where she goes right after this frame), I’d appreciate it.)
At any rate, that’s my ad parody. I can’t post it on FA ’cause of the copyright double whammy (WB owns Minerva and the Dairy Council owns the “got milk?” campaign.)
