New York Times — A Phrase for Safety After 9/11 Goes Global

The New York Times references "If You Fear Something, You'll See Something" parody! "But the phrase has been criticized by many for fueling paranoia and fear. It has been parodied, mocked and twisted around by artists and activists (“If You Fear Something, You’ll See Something,” reads a flier on www.fulana.org)." By Manny Fernandez.

Cosmopolatinos: Marlène Ramírez-Cancio from Fulana

Remezcla.com interviewed Marlène for their Cosmopolatinos series.

Miami New Times—Diaspora Vibe Gallery

"Fulana, a Latina video and performance collective, injects parody and satire to investigate how Hispanic culture is marketed by America's mass media. [...] The cutup quartet's bogus TV commercials and music videos induce howls. Latino Plastic Cover is a commercial that pokes fun at abuelitas who cover their furniture in clear plastic. [...] Equally hilarious is Lupe and Juan Di from the Block, Fulana's biting J.Lo music video rip-off riffing on the Virgin of Guadalupe and San Juan Diego, the native Mexican peasant who was canonized by the Vatican after the Holy Mother appeared to him."


Gothamist picked up on If You Fear Something too.

Gawker picked up on If You Fear Something posters on the subway... "And besides, isn't the MTA mock-up below really more to the point?"
