No. 1 INEXPLICABLY FAMOUS GUY
You're at a show, grooving to the band. Suddenly, an elbow to the ribs. Who is this guy? He's the guy everyone and no one knows: "Inexplicably Famous Guy"!
No. 2 GENTLEMAN OF LEISURE
Here's how to tell if you've stumbled onto the "Gentleman of Leisure": Does he have the baby-soft hands of an aristocrat? Are the portraits of his relatives captured in oils rather than photos? Does he leave you wondering what exactly it is that's so deplorable about you? Does he seem to be above the law? If the answer to all of the above is yes, you're in the presence of the famed "Gentleman of Leisure" of St. Louis legend and lore! This heir to entitlement and luxury will baffle you with his BMW and expensive condo and no visible means of support. Cut out your very own today!
No. 3 KARAOKE ENTHUSIAST
A million fans can't be wrong! That's right, folks: Strange as it might seem, karaoke must be fun! In a hundred years or so, a prominent psychologist will write the definitive text that reveals why karaoke became über-popular in St. Louis, and all the incomprehensible psychoses of our culture will be explained in one fell swoop. Until then, enjoy You Are Here Industries' "Karaoke Enthusiast" and keep those vocal cords obscenely underpracticed!
No. 4 ROCKABILLIES
Watch out! The "Rockabillies" are here! Modeled after those dazzling dancers who can be seen "cutting a rug" wherever rockabilly or swing music is playing (and sometimes even where no music is playing at all!), this cut-out couple is practically aching to be set free to whirl and twirl just for you. They even give dance lessons; all you have to do is shrink yourself down to their size. It's that simple, and that much fun!
No. 5 THE ARTIST
"The Artist" is among us, and she's wacky in a baffling sort of way! You'll know her by the titles of her "works," (or "pieces"), because they'll run three or four paragraphs long and include obscure references to things you've never heard of but will come away feeling you should have. There's no one like "The Artist" to take a cocky St. Louisan like you down a peg or two! Even in miniature collectible form, she'll make you feel shallow and tiny. And she's fun that way!
No. 6 GOOD COP/BAD COP
Serving the public and protecting the peace! Our Collectible Series wouldn't be complete without proper police protection, "Good Cop/Bad Cop." Best of all, the two sides of the dynamic personality of our man in blue is captured in a single cut-out! The day and night, if you will. The yin and yang. Bixby and Ferrigno. You decide which side you're on today if you dare to get close enough to find out!
No. 7 SPORTS FAN
Hello, "Sports Fan"! Rather than depict this miniature collectible's "front" and "back," You Are Here Industries has captured him "before" and "after" the big game, that is! Is it an overdose of wholesome fun that causes his disheveled look "after" the game? Or is it the half-rack of ice-cold Anheuser Busch products he imbibed in under three hours? Whatever the reason, there's no doubt this collectible cut-out had himself a very, very good time!
No. 8 MAN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD
How many cities in the world boast monthly performances by an artist who changed the world with the sweet sound of his guitar? Thanks to You Are Here Industries' unique technological capabilities, "Man Who Changed the World" is depicted in two phases: his 1950s-Era Phase (when his archetypal music "changed the world"); and his Elder Statesman Phase (present day). This miniature cut-out is a must for any serious collector of music or miniature collectibles!
No. 9 MAN PRACTICING TAI CHI
What is that tiny guy doing? In parks all over St Louis, people are practicing the ancient Far Eastern art of tai chi, a system of exercises designed to cleanse body and soul. Our "Man Practicing Tai Chi" miniature, captured in a trancelike state of "oneness," will delight your family and friends. "What is that tiny guy doing?" they'll ask and you'll have a ready answer!
No. 10 THE PLAYER
At last, the miniature collectible every girl has always wanted! A tiny "Player," modeled in painstaking detail after the real-life players you see every day hanging around the Loop (and anywhere else where there are handy "babes" waiting to be seduced). He's easy to spot: Just look for the fellow indiscriminantly checking you, your friends, your mother and your grandmother. Our exquisitely rendered "Player" miniature is equal in substance to his real-life counterpart the better to give you the full effect?
