And we can’t wait to go!
Since 2015, Jeff Wysaski has been making fake signs and toys and leaving them out in the real world for people to find. Going by the name Obvious Plant, some of his recent creations range from believable bootleg dollar store finds, like Mobile Suit Garfield, to the more conceptual, like an empty plastic bag filled with Muppet screams.
The project has amassed over 600,000 followers online, and it’s turned into Wysaski’s full-time job. He sells his favorites on an online shop, but for the past several months, Wysaski has been working on over 100 items to display at his upcoming Museum of Toys pop-up in Los Angeles where he’s based. I talked to Wysaski about how he creates his toys, prepared for his first in-person event, and deals with creating fake products in a fake news society.
