Vote for Pedro: Catalan elections, 3

Continuing with our Catalan election coverage aka Decisió ’12…

While I didnt recognize it immediately, the stencil in the lower center part of this mishmash of images is Pedro from the movie Napoleon Dynamite. While this movie isn’t for everyone, I do think it captured that boring, quintessientially middle American quirkiness that you need to have experienced first hand to really understand. I think if you’ve been there, you would enjoy this movie.
In any case, one of the central parts of this movie is the school president election, with the underdog Pedro running against the popular girl. Pedro’s election platform is quite simple–you can see it here. I think this picture captures that platform perfectly. Amongst these dreams and musings, in varying states of decay, we find the candidate staring blankly ahead.
