PoPaganda: The Art and Crimes of Ron English is a 2005 documentary about street artist Ron English, who uses his own contemporary style to liberate popular advertising. Although this form of art is considered illegal, English has participated in such campaigns for more than two decades. A signature aspect of English's work is culture jamming, whereby he manipulates the images on billboards into his own form of free speech. Some of his favorite targets include McDonald's, Joe Camel and Mickey Mouse. The film explores how English also makes comic book collages of many characters including skeletal figures, animals, Marilyn Monroe, The Hulk, Micky Mouse, breasts and MC Supersized, which is a symbol of Morgan Spurlock's "Supersize Me" documentary. He has also painted album covers for such artists as Kiss, Slash and the Dandy Warhols. Through his art, English implores his fans and viewers to simply ignore the traditional messages and not succumb to them.
