THIS IS YOUR GOD. Six (!) years ago when we dreamed up ConQwest, when we started Area/Code, I used to reference this scene all the time. It was the specific inspiration for using QR codes four or five years before they really appeared in North America. Sprint, sorry we took down the messaging backbone. Blame Dennis.
In those six years, either I forgot about it, or it just became less remarkable. Looking at it again for this essay, reminded of how much Shepard Fairey borrowed from it.
Anyway: best Rowdy Roddy Piper movie ever!
