Brazil-based designer Butcher Billy has released a series of deceased celebrity advertisements, all of which are geared towards social media marketing.
Butcher Billy's images show off Elvis Presley as he wields an iPod next to Nirvana's Kurt Cobain with an iPad in hand. While the two did not make it to see the revolution in Apple tech products, it can only be assumed that may very well have been at the fore of the product launches if they were around today.
The two were known for their participation in public relations campaigns with the Rolling Stones and MTV, and it logically follows that they would have joined the contemporary hype surrounding the release of Mac merchandise. In any case, Butcher Billy's modernized 21st century renderings of the stars are entertaining at the least.
