It wasn’t long into the computer age before computer users started becoming fascinated with all the different desktop wallpaper options available on your basic setup. After that, it wasn’t much longer before companies and brands of all sorts began targeting desktop wallpaper as a new marketing channel. What company wouldn’t want their brand viewed every time a customer or potential customer turned on their computer?
It seems as though this trend was more important in the 90s when consumers of all types were still fascinated with computers, but it’s still fun to look back at some of the more memorable wallpapers from that era. For examples, let’s look at a few Insane Clown Posse backgrounds.
Unlike their cousin merchandise item in ICP posters, Insane Clown Posse backgrounds actually display pictures of Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler, the main components of Insane Clown Posse. The posters, at least recently, are more focused on computerized graphics and design, not Joseph Bruce or Joseph Utsler. Maybe this is a sign that these to ICP founders are less comfortable with their image as they get older, but thankfully that wasn’t always the case for Joseph Bruce or Joseph Utsler,
The Insane Clown Posse backgrounds visible online today are so diverse it’s almost funny. For instance, there are Insane Clown Posse backgrounds that date back to the time when Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler both had dreadlocks. Other Insane Clown Posse backgrounds are clearly meant to disturb the viewer and play into the theme of horror rap very nicely, like one where Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler are taunting the camera while dissecting a bloody, dead body.
Some Insane Clown Posse backgrounds are the product of photo editing software, with blood splatters accompanying Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler’s grinning mugs, or a plain, blood red hatchetman taking up the entire screen. Other Insane Clown Posse backgrounds are the same image from a separate Insane Clown Posse background, but has been treated to look different, whether it was cropped and place on another colored that background or if it was made sepia or black and white.
The Insane Clown Posse backgrounds that are most difficult to stomach are not those with the Joseph Utsler or Joseph Bruce sporting most blood or the scariest face paint, but instead are those in which 90s fashion at its worst is revealed. Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler have never been known as fashion icons, and some of these Insane Clown Posse backgrounds dutifully confirm the reason why.
Regardless of the specific Insane Clown Posse background, the sheer number of them insures that plenty of adolescents were seeing the faces of Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler almost every day at one point in the mid 90s. Insane Clown Posse backgrounds have worn off now simply because the times have changed, but these old Insane Clown Posse backgrounds will survive as relics from a different time for the foreseeable future.
