"A Onda Punk" was the title given to the American film Repo Man for it's release in Brazil. The title literally translates to "The Wave Punk". Brazilian film posters of the 60s, 70s and 80s often incorporated very bright colors coupled with absurd imagery. The idea was to make the posters more appealing to young Brazilians than the films themselves. This approach to film advertising was taken because most of the movies released in Brazil during that period were goofy comedies considered culturally harmless by the military dictatorship that ruled the country from 1964 to 1985. A Onda Punk was not released in Brazil until 1986 after the dictatorship fell. Rumor has it the inclusion of the Circle Jerks song "Coup D'Etat" in the beginning of the film was the primary reason for the delay in release. A Onda Punk was never given a proper poster for it's Brazilian theatrical release so I thought it would be fun to make one now. It features Fox Harris' character, Frank, wearing the grill of the 1964 Malibu as glasses while he drives around Los Angeles.

Included in Gallery 1988's Crazy 4 Cult 5 show in Los Angeles.
