Lego Pop Culture Riddles

It’s no secret that I absolutely ADORE Lego’s clever marketing campaigns — can you believe that this is my fifth post applauding them? (see: 1, 2, 3, 4)

Even if you may be getting sick of my Lego craze, I believe that this series of posters deserves a special mention because it engages the audience and sparks creativity in a world where we are hard-pressed to find toys and activities that encourage imagination. Created by Montreal-based creative agency Brad in honor of Lego’s 55th anniversary, this set of 55 minimalist illustrations feature sparse Lego bricks arranged to represent popular songs, movies, books, bands, and children’s stories, with the tagline “Imagine a _____”

Can you guess them all? Some are pretty obvious but others are definite head-scratchers. (I have included the answer under each illustration, but in white text so you would need to highlight it to see it.)
