*Holiday* Lost in Translation: 12 Years A Slave

Well, I'm not the first person to mention this...but it is topical.  Someone had a dream.

The Internet went all kablooey when an Italian Distributor made their own Poster for the release of 12 Years A Slave at a Festival.  See if you can spot what about it offended a certain group of people...
According to a certain Italian, the film is actually 12 Years A Guy Who Was in World War Z.  Sure was nice of you to make the lead small in the film that is literally about him.

Yes, there is also one with Michael Fassbender as well.  It's pretty much the same one.

Lest you think that I'm just picking on a bunch of Foreigners.  Here's the *totally-real* Poster especially made for the State of Mississippi.

Fun Fact: They only ratified the 13th Amendment in 1995.  Bonus Fun Fact: They managed to do it without making it official...until 2013.  No, really.
Again- totally real.  Happy MLK Jr's Birthday!
