The poster for the 1973 Britcom ‘No Sex Please, We’re British.’ Ronnie Corbet’s head has been replaced by Boris Johnson’s. The word ‘British’ has been replaced with ‘Conservatives,’ the wordmark for the British Conservative Party. One of the caricature heads has been replaced by the menacing red eye of HAL 9000 from ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’ Image: Cryteria (modified) https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:HAL9000.svg CC BY 3.0: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/deed.en
