For this week’s edition of Wacky Wednesdays we’ll be covering an entry from 2011’s Wacky Packages Old School series 2 – BB Brats.
This is a fun one, based on the 1970’s version of the classic taffy treat, BB Bats – in this case, the strawberry flavor. Here’s a look at the sticker:
Due to the nature of the original wrapper, this one is largely monochromatic. I think the artist, David Gross, did as he always does – he did a great job on this one.
Here’s a look at a 1970’s Strawberry BB Bats wrapper:
You’ll note that the wrapper background is white, and in the Wacky Package it looks pink. This is due to the fact that, on a packaged strawberry BB Bats, the white is transparent and the pink of the taffy itself shows through. So, the look of the Wacky parody IS accurate.
And that’s everything for today’s edition of Wacky Wednesdays. See you next time!
