Look Closely: Supertramp’s Breakfast in America

**Warning, suspension of belief and taste is advised**

Supertramp’s Breakfast in America album cover features a waitress posing as the Statue of Liberty, while in the background is an assemblage of familiar diner items laid out to resemble New York City, visually referencing the album’s title, all’s fine. Things get weird when you look at it in the mirror. The letters U and P, which are directly above the Twin Towers, look like the numbers 9 and 11 when reversed. And the whole scene is being viewed through the window of an airliner! Did the graphic designer of this record jacket subconsciously foresee an American tragedy over two decades before it happened? I warned you.

    This one is a stretch, but somehow ponderous at the same time.

  2. It’s a stretch alright. Bordering on the ridiculous.
