My Gun Gives Me Fever

   Graphic design student Francis North found a clever way of bringing The Beatles’ song “Happiness is a Warm Gun” to life: he designed a hot water bottle in the shape of a gun. He also makes fun of American gun owners/fanatics who admit to cuddling, spooning, snuggling (feel free to use the term you want) their beloved rifles… 

   To make this hot water bottle, North made a vacuum formed mold of his childhood BB gun and cast it with rubber. The interesting part of this project is that aside from being fully functional  it also serves to ironically comment on gun “control” in America. I am just hoping that people won’t misinterpret the designer’s message and understand otherwise…
