...and even more fun, foreboding World Trade Center images.


(click images for closer look)
As a final follow-up (unless you have any more you want to send me) to these two posts on eerie pre-9/11 WTC imagery, here's two more.
(L)—The cover of the 1997 "Emergency Response to Terrorism" self-study course from FEMA. Let's remember what Bush smartie Condi Rice said in defense of the administration: "no one" could have predicted that terrorists would fly a plane into the World Trade Center. NO ONE.
(R)—an ad done by reader/commenter/fellow copywriter garrito in the early 1990s (don't make fun‚ he knows it's bad). "Steel Standing"—iron-ic pun alert! Also, there's this line of copy: "Structures built with steel can dramatically withstand the unusual dynamic forces generated by a catastrophic event -- whether from an earthquake, a hurricane, or even an explosion."

I think the cookie monster thing was a reference to the 70s version of King Kong. I think Kong climbs the twin towers instead of the Empire State Building in that version.

Yeah, that 1997 FEMA cover would have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO with the fact that the WTC was bombed four years earlier...

...nope, nothing at all.
