Keyboard Cat Has A Posse
Standing 44 inches tall and weighing in at 52 pounds we have Charlie Schmidt’s Keyboard Cat! Everyone’s favorite keyboard playing cat is now in sticker form and ready to be slapped around the world.
There are a lot of different cat personalities on the internet but it is arguably the Keyboard Cat who started it all. In 1984, Charlie Schmidt filmed the video of his cat “Fatso” in a blue shirt and manipulated him to look like he was playing a song on the keyboard. This video was finally posted in June of 2007 on YouTube. This video soon went viral and “Charlie Schmidt’s Keyboard Cat” became known as simply, Keyboard Cat.
Keyboard Cat has continued to live on through social media and the internet with continued videos of different types of music, events, and even meeting other internet cats like Grumpy Cat. He even is now available as a toy.
We see a lot of stickers through out the week and these awesome Keyboard Cat premium white stickers stood out because it was designed to represent the classic sticker art campaign of “Andre the Giant has a Posse’ designed by Shepard Fairey in 1989. You may also know Shepard Fairey from the “Obey” sticker campaign and the grassroots campaign to get Obama elected with the infamous Hope image created by Fairey.
Sticker campaigns can have a lasting place in history, so make sure to get yours started today.

“Whether the reaction be positive or negative, the stickers existence is worthy as long as it causes people to consider the details and meanings of their surroundings.”
