Pass The Rubber

If this is an actual costume* in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and not just an advertisement can we just give Kurt & Bart** the Oscar now?***


* I realize it's very possible that the movies brilliant ad campaign is completely unconnected to the actual film(s) and possible made by whole different teams

** Kurt & Bart, in case you are as yet unaware (which is possible since they're fairly new to the movies), are a costume design duo. They've only been active since John Cameron Mitchell's Shortbus in 2006 but this past year they broke out in a major way having costumed both a Best Picture nominee (Dallas Buyers Club) and a movie that just design-candy across the board (Stoker)

*** Yes, I already tweeted this exact sentiment but not all of you have Twitter and I felt like looking at the photo again. I initially resisted posting it since I hate posting commercials as content (it's such a sneaky way for the studios to get free advertising) but the campaign is just too smart to not share at least one image.

There's some bad photoshop going on. You can see the guy's left arm hanging by his side, but then his left hand shows up on top of the tire!

Disclaimer: my initial reaction was wow, but you can't blame me for staring at those arms long enough to pick it up!

I've never wanted to be run over so much in my life!

@craver - Uh. That's the point. These are made to be actual posters created by the Capitol to "promote" Panem (and the status quo). So of course they would pick models. Vive La Revolution!
