By now, everyone’s seen the anglo-rific “Keep Calm and Carry on Posters” along with its million derivatives. In the past month alone I’ve been told to keep calm and eat cake, buy a t-shirt, sing a song, and do something that’s only legal in Amsterdam. So, just when I thought I couldn’t bear anymore keeping calm, this video came along, bringing the magic back to the ubiquitous poster. What’s particularly cool is how it was rediscovered:

Need a little help keeping calm? There’s an app for that.

  1. Hmmm. I contrast this to my favorite, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention!” I really don’t think “keep calm” fits today because it’s too accepting and passive about the massive assaults against everyone who isn’t the 1%. This is an understatement!

  2. Hey Randy,

    An excellent contrast. I think it’s most notable for its typography, while the message belongs to a different era.

    Thanks for commenting,
