TrustoCorp’s Dark, Hilarious Spoof Tabloid Covers


As you can probably tell, we are big fans of TrustoCorp, the New York-based (but now global) street-art pranksters who recently gave us a pair of guerrilla phone-booth ads for faux reality shows The Real Housewives of Baghdad and The Real World: North Korea. Less than two weeks later, the culture jammers are back with a trio of parody tabloids — God Help Us, Shallow People, and We’re Not OK! — that revisits those concepts and adds a slew of other darkly absurdist cover lines, from “Ethiopian Diet Secrets!” to “Donald Trump Is Pregnant!” Arrested Motion, which reports that TrustoCorp is placing the mock tabloids at magazine stands in Manhattan, Williamsburg, Hollywood, LAX, and JFK, is running a contest where you can win one of the titles. See all three magazine covers after the jump.
