The Texaco Big Friend was a giant fiberglass statue built by International Fiberglass as part of an ad campaign for Texaco back in the 60’s.

History in 3D In 1934 Italians who were permitted to vote went to the polls to choose “yes” or “no” for a list of 400 members of the chamber of deputies chosen by the Grand Council of Fascism. Benito Mussolini was in full command as the leader of the Fascist Party and dictator of Italy. This bizarre and visually striking display adorned the headquarters of the Fascist Party in Rome at the time of the vote; Mussolini’s menacing visage surrounded by the word YES. The message had all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. “Yes” received 99.84% of the vote. When […]
