War is Over

December 16, 2014.

My first entry. Decided to post John Lennon’s Happy Christmas (War is Over) video. The song was originally released in America in 1971. Lennon bought giant billboard spaces in 12 major cities around the world. The message in large black lettering behind a white background was simple: War is Over. Underneath those famous words in smaller print: If you want it. Billboards appeared in New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Rome, Athens, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Helsinki.

“Now I understand what you have to do: Put your political message across with a little honey.”
-John Lennon
