Mr Bingo based Interesting Night
We have a regular thing here at Propaganda – we meet up over some fatty food and one of us gives a little presentation to the agency on something they find interesting.
My chosen subject? The life and times of Mr Bingo and his Hate Mail project.
I’ll let Mr Bingo’s website explain what it is – “I love post and I’m worried that people don’t get enough ‘fun’ post these days. Especially postcards. So I had an idea. It’s very simple. You send me forty quid (plus postage) and I’ll send you a vintage postcard with a drawing and an offensive message on it. (that’s why it’s called ‘Hate mail’). So you get an original signed drawing, the postman get’s a laugh and the world get’s a little bit happier”
So I explained about the idea, how I and Steve in the agency had got a hate mail and how the project had been turned into a book, with my postcard being included…wicked!
This was my Hate:
And here’s the book with a few Hates:
But it gets better. I asked Mr Bingo for a message for the agency as I was doing the talk on him – and this is what the two-legged legend sent:
A great sweary night, hats off all round and yes, I am still shitter than Jedward.
Oh yeah, go BUY THE BOOK
