During rehearsals, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton found out that they both hated the new Volkswagen Beetle with a passion, and for the scene where Tyler and The Narrator are hitting cars with baseball bats, Pitt and Norton insisted that one of the cars be a Beetle. As Norton explains on the DVD commentary, he hates the car because the Beetle was one of the primary symbols of 60s youth culture and freedom. However, the youth of the 60s had become the corporate bosses of the 90s, and had repackaged the symbol of their own youth, selling it to the youth of another generation as if it didn’t mean anything. Both Norton and Pitt felt that this kind of corporate selling out was exactly what the film was railing against, hence the inclusion of the car; “It’s a perfect example of the Baby Boomer generation marketing its youth culture to us. As if our happiness is going to come by buying the symbol of their youth movement, even with the little flower holder in the plastic molding. It’s appalling to me. I hate it.” 

I can respect that.

Well fuck.

Most people don’t get the double layer of satire here. They think they’re being rebellious by smashing a car that has a brand association they disagree with - when every car has some sort of lifestyle marketing attached to it.
Why not smash a Hummer H2, for its wasteful gas mileage and associations with douchey club promoters who want to be tough in their pretend military vehicles? Why not smash a Toyota Corolla, the world’s literal most popular car, that is the bland “best buy” choice of millions? Why not smash a Chevy, for being an average car brand that plays mostly on lazy American patriotism and nostalgia?
But all that is happening here is vandalism.
Real rebellion is not made by expressing different, “better” consumer choices, aka brand snobbery.
Real revolution involves “boring” things like mass protest, strikes, boycotts, running candidates for office, and proposing better and fairer legislation and policy changes. 
That’s why the Space Monkeys and Project Mayhem are really a satire on what some people think “real” male identity is about; going from feminized Ikea catalogue shopper to anarcho-fascist, macho building-demolishers.

LiartownUSA has always celebrated ONLINE SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS. Now, spurred by popular demand and a deep desire to properly honor the internet’s bravest, most productive heroes, I am very pleased to announce the very first LiarTown item to consensually enter the physical world.
First appearing in a December 2013 post and honored by rave reviews from Jezebel.com (“The absolute best cat calendar!”) this now-100% real publication is officially available for sale. 
This full-color, 12” x 12” grid-style wall calendar is presented and shipped in plenty of time for the holidays. Each month features a charming kitten professionally photographed in a heroic pose appropriate to a small cat defiantly speaking out on the hottest social justice issues of the day. A sassy, uncompromising declaration erases any doubts about each precious cat’s passionate convictions, sense of humor, and tough-as-nails attitude! 
Each of these twelve adorable kittens was subject to a week-long, grueling interview process to ensure there was absolutely nothing problematic in its beliefs. Unlike bland, privileged garbage kittens chosen for nothing more than shallow good looks, Social Justice Kittens radiate fierce strength in the face of untold adversity, and all are gifted with a dazzling array of genders and orientations to go with their tiny, oh-so-kissable faces! The patriarchy WILL NEVER accept these kittens! 
After thousands of years of CIS-HET BULLSHIT, here at last is a calendar that DARES YOU to speak truth to power. A calendar which boldly announces to the world that you aren’t going to sit back and let others speak for you. A calendar that holds you up high so others can see you’re able to stand proudly on your own!
It comes down to this: Do you want to financially support the ideals embodied by this unique, functional gift, or refuse to purchase a copy and become a hateful fake ally who actively embraces injustice and the murder of innocents? The choice is yours.
One more time, to be clear: This is a genuine 2015 calendar, printed on big machines and then mailed out by mid-November.
To visit the online store, click here. 
Last but not least, a big THANK YOU to everyone who supported this project during its formation.
