The Undie Poke


The transformation from the human to posthuman spectacle is one of the defining moments of post-modern globalism and the spread of packaged eros as commodity in the age of mass spectacle.

As Paul Virilio notes, “Images contaminate us like viruses.”

Take the 1-inch Undie Poke.

This simple display of cloth overlap, something that could concievably occur by simple happenstance, instead occurs in a large cultural matrix of meaning.

The Undie Poke contains cultural signifier. The Undie Poke communicates semiotically, in service of attracting the perfectly tanned boobie hottie suckle thigh.

It states that the scrotal douchewank is “plugged in.” He has absorbed cultural messages and is able to reprocess and communicate them back.

Whether it’s a phallic grip on a bottle of bud, or tatts on his shoulder, large glasses, a perfectly tilted hat, or a stupid-ass earring, we must see each of these as larger message.

Words in a larger sentence.

A sentence that intends to say, “I am validated by product, and you should want me sexually.”

Or a sentence we can collective reprocess and recode. To say, “He’s a douche.”
