Grinch Poster Parodies
The Grinch Poster Parodies are series of photoshopped promotional posters for the 2018 animated feature film Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, elevating the gentle trolling of the original posters and making them more explicitly offensive for humorous effect.
In fall 2018, a number of promotional posters for the The Grinch, which attempted to gently troll the area in which they were placed, began gaining notice online. On October 17th, 2018, Twitter user @Yassammez tweeted a series of these posters (shown below, left). The post received more than 10 retweets and 60 likes.
Two days later, Twitter user @bugmanetv tweeted, “I don’t like this new grinch.” They attached a photograph of one of the trolling posters; however, the tagline has been photoshopped to read “I’m gonna drown you to death in green cum.” The post received more than 2,200 retweets and 9,900 likes in four days (shown below, right).
