Fairey assumed Hillary Clinton would win and his White House visit would be a celebration of her election, until it became clear that was not to be. He emailed the Obama aide coordinating the visit.
A and Ice-T were all using the word. The film screened worldwide, most notably in the Sundance Film Festival.
InVillage Voice film critic Ed Halter described the film as: One of the keenest examinations of '90s underground culture". Still, 'Obey' was suggestively antiauthoritarian.
