Where most enamel pins I have ordered arrive in a manilla envelop, maybe a nice cardboard header, but usually with minimal packaging. I was floored when I oped the package to find both pins in a small branded cloth bag. It's the little things that really win me over. In typical cool brand tradition it also came with free button and awesome sticker. Enough about the packaging, let's get to the pins.

The meat of the entire order was this pin. This was the one that set my brain on fire. 'Ghostbusters' and 'Back to the Future' were landmarks in 80's cinema and I'm amazed that no one had come up with it sooner. It's the mashing of two of the greatest pop culture films while setting up possibly the best fan fiction you could come up with.Our own Steve Fox came up with this gem:
When I posted the above image on my own Instagram I got the most likes that I think I've ever received, so apparently peopel are as excited for this idea as much as I was.VENKMAN: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Ray, uh... Are you telling me that you built an Ectomobile... out of a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Futura Duplex?
STANTZ: Yes, the way I see it, if you're gonna bust ghosts in a car, why not do it with some style?
Get on it Paramount/Universal. This is the reboot/sequel we want.
Note: Currently the first run is sold out but a second run will return on May 1st.

Something I haven't mentioned, both of these pins glow in the dark. And I mean glow. Glow strong. And not just in standard green but multicolored highlights. I needed to own them. They fell into every category that I live me life by:
- Pop Culture
- Film Centered
- Glow in the Dark
The sticker that came with the pins shows off Clark Orr's style of sinister fun. This more represents his brand art, which can be seen with Super 7 or Johnny Cupcakes.
I've been a casual fan of Clark Orr but now he's becoming an artist I will watch closely, especially if he continues with these pop culture pins and prints like this 'Real Ghostbusters' Ectoplasm print.
With that, we welcome Clark Orr Design Co. into the We Are Pop Culture clubhouse.
