(For all those who can’t read the title of this post, here’s the definition) An AMBIGRAM is a typographical design or artform that may be read as one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction, or orientation. The words readable in the other viewpoint, direction or orientation may be the same or different from the original words.
The cover is awesome, but I still don’t understand what people find so funny about that movie. It’s amateur-hour story-telling at best. The jokes are lame and the production is shoddy.

MIND = BLOWN O_o
Saw this a while ago, I used to work in a movie store. It was awesome then and it’s still pretty sweet now. But it is very, very old.

[...] you don’t like these guys, you might as well stop reading and move on to something else, like look at cool dvd covers or something. I know I fall under that category. I enjoyed climbing a tree for this one…and I [...]
We actually own this one, and I never even realized that you could flip it like that until I was trying to put the DVD up one day (it’s my sister’s favorite movie, she’s always leaving it around) and the opening was on the wrong side. It’s pretty cool. Wonderful example of amazing design.
And definitely NOT ‘shopped – if in doubt, go check out your local Wal-Mart or whatever store sells DVDs.
Now I also saw a cartoon before this but could not find the comment link, well it is kind of nice that´s all
What the…? That’s my picture! WHY IS THAT PICTURE GOING EVERYWHERE?
Shoot, my computer screwed up and made my location my email address. Whatever. At any rate, this IS my picture, and that IS me. I posted it on my Tumblr back in April [http://katielopezzz.tumblr.com/post/514001216] and just found this now. If you could give me credit, that’d be sweet. Thanks.
