Motivational Posters

Asian edition

Since the original “hang in there, baby” image of a kitten struggling to hold on to a tree branch, started appearing on walls over 40 years ago, motivational posters have been created to inspire us to persevere when the going gets tough. Demotivational posters have since shown up as a parody.

Either way, I’ve noticed that quite a few photos of well-known Asian ladies have appeared on Internet versions over the last several years, such as this famous shot of Sunghi Lee (above) from her 1996 milk photo shoot that she did for Playboy’s Book of Lingerie.

commercial that ran as a print ad. The commercial that ran around the same time
as this, was banned from Korean network television as it was deemed too racy.

The poster girl in this one, English-born actress Papillion Soo Soo, also gets credit for speaking a similar, now-(in)famous line from the 1987 movie Full Metal Jacket, which this still is from. Click the play button below to hear the actual line from the film.
