Just when we were getting sick of all those hologram jokes, Cardboard Biggie saves the day. But the question remains — will it go viral?
Those Vice Records scamps in The Black Lips got up to more Coachella tomfoolery this weekend. Last weekend, full frontal nudity was the gimmick of the day. This weekend, The Black Lips capitalized on the Tupac Hologram’s success with their own DIY budget version — Cardboard Cutout Notorious B.I.G.
Here’s the real question — what will the internet do with this? The Tupac Hologram spawned plenty of memes, including the All Hologram Festival poster by our sister site AUX.TV. Cardboard Biggie already has his own Twitter account, and yes, he is even Twitter-beefing with the Holographic Tupac:
@HologramTupac fuckin with cardboard biggie ain’t safe, I’ll make your holographic skin chafe.

If there’s something to this Cardboard Cutout meme, we’d better get on the train early. I just checked out CardboardCutouts.com, and for $29.99 each, we can get cutouts of Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber, The Jonas Brothers, Kiss, Cody Simpson & so many more!
So for only $1500, we could program an music festival featuring a bill made entirely of Cardboard Cutouts! That’s way less expensive than one measly hologram. Who’s in?
