If nobody had pointed it out, I would have never noticed.

The reasoning around it makes sense though. They used what was available to rent.

Why someone made a prosthetic head of GWB, or any former President, is a little strange. What else could you use it for?

veryequiped: Publicity

I wonder how many existing Season 1 boxsets are going to get cleaned off the shelves for this


Heck, worked on me. Ordered my copy on Amazon and should be expecting it in the next couple of weeks.

What I would like to know, is why is an apology even warranted? Is it not the duty of the media and the artistic community to ridicule the government, both past and present?

Well, you could use it to advocate the assassination of the president, of course.

You don't set out to make a head look like someone in particular. If you're trying to make them in bulk and cheap, you use cheap molds. When Halloween rolls around again, go to that shop in the mall that pops up every year. They probably don't sell a lot of rubber masks that looks like your neighbor. The companies make prosthetics that look like famous people because that's what molds have been built.

I imagine that the demand falls when a President leaves office and masks and molds become pretty cheap. If this had been filmed 8 years prior, they'd be Clinton heads on a stick. The studio might not have even bought them as "Bush" heads. They might have just been labeled "Heads" and someone on staff noticed that they looked like GWB heads without realizing why.

I feel the need to point this out to all the people in this thread who are getting so upset:

They didn't actually sever George W Bush's head

Probably because here in the Colonies we don't "queue", we "stand in line".
