Ultraviolence

The image isjarring. This upbeat government poster encouraging moral rectitude among citizens features the image of rock star Psy doing his “Gangnam Style” dance. The title given for this section is ” ‘Illegal Business of Ill-repute’ NO!” No doubt a campaign against houses of prostitution. But the poster someone has put up advertizing “ultraviolence” is a bit jarring. I wonder if the person who posted that poster understood the term “ultraviolence” in its original context, or meant the juxtiposion to be humorous.

 

"Illegal Business of Ill-repute"   NO!

“Illegal Business of Ill-repute” NO!
