Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Saturday, March 07, 2021


I really wish I could find a better image of the above ad for Neil LaBute’s newest body-image stageplay, “reasons to be pretty”.

Hard to believe I can’t, because the ad is plastered all over town. Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only person in New York who considers media eyecandy like this to be worthy of online commentary. If so, the rest of you are welcome. Even if it is just a blurry cameraphoned creation (embiggened on Flickr).

My main motive in snapping this pic: I just wanted to commemorate the decidedly unique URL connected to the campaign, DoesThisPlayMakeMeLookFat.com.

As for the play itself, I’m tempted to take it in. Or I’ll just wait for the movie adaptation to come out eventually.

  1. I’d love to catch it with you, but I’ve recently found myself among the unemployed again. No more good excuses to come to the city. I’ll call you tomorrow to catch you up.
