Things We Saw Today: The Handmaid’s Tale‘s NYCC Ads Are For Women’s Eyes Only
Well, or anyone else who might be in the women's bathroom.
We’re already excited to see Hulu’s upcoming TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which got a spooky teaser on the show’s official Twitter account earlier this week. Whoever’s in charge of the marketing campaign made another cool choice this weekend by putting this graffiti in the women’s bathrooms at New York Comic Con. That’s a quote from the book: “Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.” It means, “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.” Haunting words said from one woman to another. (via Revelist)
