[POSTER] “Attack of the Yogilebrity!!!!”

Friend or foe? Nobody knows!

Beware, the yogilebrity! A phenomenon that has grown beyond its own good…

Are yogilebrities even aware of their own size?

When they’re in marketing mode, we think “yes.” When they’re in “free yoga event in small neighborhood” mode, we think “no.” But, then we stop for a second and realize that almost everything a yogilebrity does, by definition and due to the condition of its own size and nature, is marketing, and so we think “yes” again. Yes yes no no yes yes.

    I just blew my chai out my nose…. 😀

  4. I want a copy of this poster for my Halloween party!

  5. For those who would like to print the poster. At 300dpi (printable size) it’s roughly 9″x14″. Have fun!

      It’s very pretty, AB.

      I’m intrigued by the icon. It seems to be the Pillsbury Dough boy dressed up in a Navy ensign’s outfit.

      I was thinking that “Hey, Sailor” does kind of sum up the integrity and style of the yoga industry’s “Call to Action.”

        I poked the screen image but it didn’t giggle. Kind of like the yogis I know.

      • Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Brought into this world by Zule to destroy the GhostBusters. Unknowing of its own girth.

        • Yoga Whelp

          According to Dan Aykroyd, “[Marshmallow Man] seems harmless and puff and cute – but given the right circumstances, everything can be turned back and become evil.”

        • @YW: That is what we had in mind. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man comes into the world, seemingly doughy and happy, and wreaks havoc due to his complete oblivion…. And also gets really angry when tested. Is the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man the absolute perfect mascot of the yogilebrity community????

        • Yoga Whelp

          @AB. Indeed. It’s perfect. The only figure remotely comparable would be Mothra, topless, with breasts, sporting pink polka dot thongs, and recklessly smashing buildings with her Manduka mat. I hear that Anna Forest might be cast in the movie role. Who you gonna call!

  7. Attack of the killer Yogalebrity couldn’t have happened without the Attack of the Killer Yogis in New York over 12 years ago, even before 9/11 …

    http://www.nytimes.com/2001/01/07/style/attack-of-the-killer-yogis.html?pagewanted=all&src=pm – the article stars Colleen Saidman …

    My starstruck former teacher had been starring in a different NY Times article, btw … on a similar topic …

    PAPA’S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG!!!

    John Friend has re-established himself as a Hatha yoga teacher in the Iyengar tradition in Colorado. I haven’t bought the T-Shirt yet, but I’ve seen the new web site and his class schedule.

    My God — It’s the Resurrection!!

    John’s really into yoga “spirals” now, but after “spiraling” down, I guess that’s a natural motif.

    Loops, spirals, fucking curlicues — I don’t give a shit, John, grab whatever brass ring’s in front of you. Just don’t forget the Clorox.

    And speaking of “Denver” — all together now!!!

    “He was born in the summer of his [57]th year.
    Coming home to a place he’d never been before.
    Left yesterday behind him
    Might say he was born again
    Might say he found the key to every door.
    When he first came to the mountains
    His life was far away
    On the road and hanging by a song
    But the string’s already broken
    And he doesn’t really care.
    He keeps changing fast, and it don’t last for long.
    The Colorado Rocky Mountain High.
    I’ve seen it raining fire in the sky.”

    boy do I belt out that John Denver song whenever it comes on the radio… and I’ve never even been to colorado

  10. Greenpoint

    that is pretty awesome but may I make a suggestion, think the Marshmallow Man should be adorned with something from PooPoolemon, that would increase his “evil quotient” a bit…

  11. gross

    good point green point

      Waiting for the PuupuuLemon “Hello, Sailor” pole-to-fit collection [“Ready to swab any of your decks!”] … yoga whelp and greenpoint just calling it as they see it, natch!
