If you're a Seinfeld fan living in New York City, nostalgia for the show hits you from time to time. It's comforting to know you can dine at Tom's on the Upper West Side, just like Jerry and the crew. And, if you're so inclined, you could even try your luck with a particular, notorious soup man. But, the latest installment of fan memorabilia comes from local artist Jay Shells, who created movie posters for the classic (fictional) film Rochelle, Rochelle.
Much to fans' delight, the posters feature the actual cover art from the VHS George rents on the show. And, they're now hanging at the United Artists Theatre on the Upper East Side at East 64th Street and Second Avenue. We appreciate the way Shells swapped out the production credits for lines from the show. You know: "A young girl's strange erotic journey from Milan to Minsk" and "It's an erotic romance about life, love, and becoming a woman."
According to DNA Info, Shells is considering creating more Rochelle, Rochelle posters, depending on public reaction. He may even create new posters for other titles from the show, like Sack Lunch and Chunnel. The street artist already earned serious cred for his Subway Etiquette and Rap Sign installments, and this latest series has us asking, "Banksy who?" (Gothamist)
