Festival totems — you either hate ’em, or you love ’em. We truly see both sides of the issue, but you must admit, some of them are downright funny.
(They’re ESPECIALLY funny when carried by someone who respects the rest of the crowd to turn them sideways as to not block the views of others! Just sayin’.)
We rounded up some of the best totems festival goers have seen this year and awarded them by category.
Best Cry For Help Award
That wasn’t weed, Dad. Dad?
Squad Goals Awards
This magical contraption is literally hooked onto their pants! I can’t tell if this is a festival installation, or some very dedicated, very rad GA patrons. Either way, it’s beautiful.
Most Wholesome Totem Award
Your friendly reminder to eat your veggies, and never turn down at The Forest.
Best Meme-Turned-Totem Award
We found the plug, I guess.
Most Likely To Drink Wine Out Of Cans Award
It happens to the best of us. The Gang should know the drill- stay calm, make a plan, and call Frank. But whatever you do, don’t let Rickety Cricket in your tent.
Best Character Crossover Award
Lionel Richie and Waldo just had a love child. No more games, Waldo- we saw you all weekend.
Never Gets Old Award
Eliza Thornberry’s little brother was definitely a wook in the making. I wonder what he’s up to now.
Best Face Melting, Universe Travelling Award
If you aren’t getting Rick And Morty’d at a festival, you probably aren’t doing it right.
Current Events Award
Some say he was just a Gorilla. But how do you explain how he used this flower-kqween Snapchat filter on his iPhone7 before his passing? He was one of us. This long haired music lover is a true activist. Never forget.
Whose mans is this? This dude’s respect level is unparalleled- blocking no views, but partying just as hard as the pill poppin’ Spongebob squad. Rage on, friend.
It’s Clit Fam Award
Because what’s girl power without a massive, light-up, lady bit made out of a boa? This is modern art.
