And also, vote for Obama...

As part of his show at Coachella last weekend, Roger Waters (who?) released a giant inflatable pig (oh, he was in Pink Floyd) that bore various references to some anticapitalism-themed tour undertaken by Pink Floyd back in the 70s. He did this while playing Pink Floyd songs in front of giant pictures of old Pink Floyd shows that flashed across the scaena frons. The underbelly of the pig sported a big "OBAMA" next to a checked box. This struck me as odd, this one modern element in the whole production, then I realized that they probably just painted over the old text, "ACID."

(fast forward to about 1:37 to see the Obama reference. also, turn off your sound. Pink Floyd sucks.)
