So Tom from The Friars Pub called Dave Blackhurst to make a poster for the upcoming bands playing at the club in May. What they got was brilliant. The poster above was hung in the restrooms at the pub.

Blackhurst said: “It’s obviously not a real thing… I haven’t got a smartphone.” In fact, when we spoke to him, he was using a Nokia C2.
He told us he was inspired by other text message memes on the internet which made him laugh. The best thing about it is he isn’t even a graphic designer – he made the poster on a text message generator online.
Blackhurst, a copywriter, is happy with the poster going viral, saying: “It’s been up a week, a mate of mine was at the pub yesterday and took a photo of it. I woke up this morning and thought ‘what the hell’s going on here?’”
Blackhurst later shared the first draft of the idea at Facebook. It contains NSFW language. -via Digg
