These Business Cards Reveal Side Jobs Of Iconic Movie Characters

See the odd jobs occupied by characters like Bond villain henchman Odd Job.

The high water mark of pop culture business card moments once belonged to a famous scene from the film, American Psycho, but not anymore.


A new project shows what careers characters from well-known movies might have embarked on beyond their screen time. Created by Benedetto Papi and Edoardo Santamato from Italy-based agency, Invasione Creativa, the series sometimes engages in mere wordplay (one of the cards reads “Rosemary’s Babysitting”) and other times launches into fan fiction-esque character continuation, as when HAL 9000 is apparently rebooted after the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey, only to become the ultimate IT security. Papi and Santamato missed a real opportunity, though, by not having American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman go on to be a manufacturer of killer business cards or something.

Have a look at more of the business cards in the slides above.
