CM Squared Strikes Again: Don't Hate the Player, Yo

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We're big fans of the nutty, fantastical display work done by ChadMichael Morrisette and Mito Aviles, who are maybe better known as CM Squared Designs. And just in time to kick off the lazy, hot days of summer comes this fun little piece of seasonal tableau gracing the window of Alpha Man. We love the totally insouciant "la la la la la" carefree look of the dude on the right, and the somewhow pensive, self-aware expression on the guy in the green shirt with the crossbow. Better still is that Alpha Man is doing a special promotion for playas -- or make that, would be playas: they're giving away a package of summer lawn games (three cheers for Slip N Slide!), all stuffed into a handsome Jack Spade duffel. You can enter to win at their Facebook page. Entering, or just plain enjoying the window display, is always free of charge.
