With Valentine’s Day only barely past us, one group has a message for you about turning the hate that is presently ripping through America on the occasion of Donald Trump’s presidential administration, into love.

A set of three giant images of a caricatured, nude Russian President Vladimir Putin caressing a “very pregnant,” also nude, and also caricatured U.S. President Donald Trump, popped up in New York City this week on Valentine’s Day.

The images were the brainchild of the company behind the “Hater” app, which aims to connect potential love interests on the basis of shared objects of hate. According to the Business Insider, some 80 percent of the “Hater” app’s 200,000 users have Donald Trump listed in their profile as something that they hate.

The images were projected onto the side of three buildings. These buildings included an Apple store in NYC’s LGBT friendly Chelsea neighborhood, a CVS pharmacy, and a building in NYC’s Williamsburg neighborhood.

The projections included, besides the caricatured images of the pair of world leaders, the “Hater” app company’s upside down heart logo and the hashtag “Love Through Hate.”

You can check out a sample of one of the images below.

Brendan Alper, Hater’s founder and CEO, stated of his company’s stunt, “There’s a lot of tension out there, regardless of which side you’re on. We’re just trying to make people laugh. Through humor, hate can turn into love.”

Alper definitely has a point.

This public display is not the first of its kind.

For instance, a mural popped up in recent months in Eastern Europe that featured Trump and Putin engaging in a cannabis smoke imbued kiss, and the image of it quickly went viral. (It’s featured below.)

VILNIUS, LITHUANIA - SEPTEMBER 16: Street artist Mindaugus Bonanu has reworked the painting of Trump kissing Putin after it was vandalised a number of weeks ago on September 16 2016 in Vilnius, Lithuania. THE VANDALISED street mural of Vladimir Putin kissing Donald Trump has made a return to the Lithuanian capital. The most internationally recognised street art in Vilnius history now shows Trump smoking cannabis and blowing the air into Putins mouth whilst intimately holding the back of his head. With the original painting being vandalised a number of weeks ago, street artist Mindaugus Bonanu and owner of the location Dominykas Ceckauskas, have roared back by re-working the image with a pro-legalisation message. The painting displays a play on words with the slogan make America great again changed to make everything great again. The subject of Cannabis has also been introduced to the new work with both Bonanu and Ceckauskas supporting the legalisation of the substance.

Other flagrant anti-Trump artistic stunts include that time when a series of nude statues of Trump popped up in cities around the U.S., and there’s that time a Chinese shopping mall unveiled a huge statue of a rooster that was modeled to look like Donald Trump.

Trump, ironically, has already long shown himself to be the kind of bombastic, public image obsessed figure of which it is fitting to make artistic statements like these.
