Conspiracy Theory Model Sets Let You Put It Together

If you’re a conspiracy theorist, you know that half the fun is putting it all together. The other half is gradually losing the support of your friends and family as you slowly slide down the rabbit hole of paranoia and stop bathing and eating in favor of constructing ever more intricate tinfoil hats, but putting it together, that’s were everyone gets hooked. With that in mind, Tamiya, a Japanese plastic model company, put together its “Put It Together” ad campaign featuring plastic model sets of famous conspiracy theories.

Unfortunately, these things don’t actually exist, and neither do the model sets. It’s rather fitting though, because every good conspiracy theorist knows that it’s all about putting it together in your head, because the physical evidence is nonexistent. Putting it together in your head and then keeping it there with tinfoil.

For those of you who aren’t up on your conspiracies, they are, in order:

  • Alien landing at Roswell
  • JFK assassinated by a gunner on the grassy knoll
  • The murder of Marilyn Monroe
  • The faked death of Elvis
  • Studio-filmed “moon landing”
