Miss Piggy is not the one to blame for the new strain of swine origin H1N1 virus but, as an ultimate style icon, she will always be a source of inspiration.  That’s what American photographer Brett Arthur thought and gathered some friends at home in order to explore the animal inside them and make some ironic portraits of Influenza A virus.  We don’t know if this is the look of the season, but it could perfectly be a part of a campaign to raise awareness of the virus.  And that’s because, with no intension to trivialize something as important as the flu pandemic, we at Yatzer definitely think that a little bit of humor can be the prefect antidote to mass media hysteria. Fear is the most contagious thing after all and this is the last thing that we would like to happen. No need to cry then piggy lovers, just wear your best smile and, taking the necessary precautions, go out at the streets!
