Parting Shot: Inspirational Invisible Obama Poster By Francesco Francavilla [Art]

By now you’re certainly aware of the incredibly unexpected and indescribably bizarre performance by Clint Eastwood at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida on Thursday night, where the American film icon delivered an unscripted and punishing admonishment to an empty chair he jokingly identified as President Obama. Whatever legitimate criticisms Eastwood was trying to make with respect to international policy and other subjects were completely eclipsed by what MSNBC host Rachel Maddow described as “the weirdest thing I’ll ever see at a political convention even if I live to be 100.”

Naturally, the Internet has had its way with Eastwood’s material, and our pick for winner is comic book artist Francesco Francavilla (Batman: The Black Mirror, Archie Meets KISS), who appropriated Shepard Fairey’s iconic “Hope” poster to marvelous ends. Full-size version and Eastwood video are below.
