Historically Hardcore Parody Posters

Historically Hardcore are a series of fake ads for the Smithsonian Institute created by Matt Kaplan and Jenny Burrows, poking fun at modern figures in contrast to "hardcore" historical ones (see below for an example).

The ads are not official Smithsonian copy, however, but were a portfolio project for both artists. At that, over the past few days they have stirred up a ton of interest in history and in the Smithsonian online, particularly among the younger audience they were trying to reach with their light tone and contemporary references.
