We’ve all seen those motivational posters before. The ones with some positive word like “Perseverance” below a stock photo of a mountain or a big tree or something. We all know the poster’s intention, but has anyone actually looked at one of these things and come away inspired? Like, ever?
That’s the inspiration for Despair, Inc., a very funny company that parodies these ubiquitous posters by making them the exact opposite of “motivational.” They’re called “De-motivational” posters, and they’re so bleakly hilarious they might bum you out while they make you laugh. Time to get in touch with your pessimist side.
