The childish note from ‘The Snowman’ is Twitter’s favorite new meme
Mister police, can you send me some design software?
The posters for The Snowman, a real film in theaters right now, seem like they were designed as an internet prank. The font looks like something that a neighbor would scribble in a passive-aggressive note, and it’s accompanied by an image of a very sad-looking snowman. Just look at these posters:
never getting tired of this. these posters should be mandated to stay up forever pic.twitter.com/FZ4CDS2ygo— David Sims (@davidlsims) October 9, 2017
i made myself laugh so hard i cried looking at this poster for the snowman pic.twitter.com/Dr5xY3Ec9l— witch (@thredsn) October 26, 2017
Yes, these posters are advertising a thriller movie about a serial killer. It’s not a parody. Yet instead of convincing people to see an apparently scary movie, the unintentionally hilarious posters became a meme.

The funniest part about this story? The minimalist illustration of the snowman in the posters actually looks like the one in the film. The dour-looking snowman is still more funny than scary.

But here’s the real kicker: The note isn’t even in the film!
FYI: That "Mister Police" letter you see in all the ads for The Snowman isn't even in the actual movie.— Jaime Rebanal (@ItsJaimeHere) October 22, 2017
