“We can start the country over from scratch…Can you see the Blue Room with Campbell’s Soup Cans all over
the walls? Because that’s what Foreign Heads of State should see, Campbell’s Soup Cans and Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe. That’s America. That’s what should be in the White House.” – Andy Warhol, 1975
“Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup cans were a brilliant parody of art in the same way that Campbell’s Soup is a brilliant parody of food.” – Craig Kilborn during The Daily Show
“Who knew that Campbell’s Soup still existed? The only reason they are probably still in business is because Andy gave them a place in pop culture history that will forever be celebrated as some of the best art work ever created.” – a Pop Burger rep on the 139 year-old soup company
