Pop Culture Portraits – Don’t Hate Me Cuz You Ain’t Me

There one time was a CRAZE when celebrities got photoshopped or posed as icons into photographs. For example

Could this give a new meaning to Pop Culture? Is the current finally appreciating the past? Is David, Wood, da Vinci and more part of the everyday vernacular? Maybe not. But at least there is a some form of recognition.

And with today’s technology, citizens of Snapchat have taken pop culture and history to a whole new level. You won’t believe it.

Apparently much madness can be attributed to some SNAPCHATTER by the name Lyxdelsic, in captioning King Louis XIV by Hyacinthe Rigaud (b. 1701)… just took this game to a whole new level. “Don’t Hate Me Cuz You Ain’t Me.”


It just went there. And it does not stop:


I say keep on popping. Spread the word. Why not? To all you one liner Snapchatters, “may the odds be ever in your favour.”
