You know the rest.
Not much left to say right now besides that, however I found this fun little video to divert our attention for a few minutes. If you ever wondered where the poster came from and why it’s so famous today, there’s a very short video after the break which explains it.
As a bonus, if you’re quick enough, you’ll spot an OG 9-3 (possibly NG 900).

Great story, great video, fantastic book shop.
Thanks for sharing. 🙂
But there might be an copyright issue in here, when changing the crown for a griffin. Hope not.
The reason a bookstore can sell an image they never created is that it’s over 50 years old and thus available for fair use. That we parodied it and made it our own makes it even less an issue 🙂 Just enjoy.
I’d like to buy that hoodie – any chance? However, I’d prefer a male version in a dark color. You should add it to your spreadshirt shop.
I’d like to buy that g……..Nope, I’m not going there……..Down Boy!
Yesss…, I saw the 900II 🙂
Here you go:
Yes, but without the griffin, unfortunately 🙁
Thank you Jeff. I feel calmer for having watched it. Funny that at 2:50 the sign on the wall says “9-5” 😉
worked for the british and the 69 mets…go saab
Actually, it’s a very Saaby video – the climate, the music, the no-nonsense explanatory role, the images that speak to you even if the voiceover was removed.
Thank you Jeff!
Nice opportunity to thank again, deep heartily, all those who kept calm, carried on, and finally brought us democracy in Germany.
I carry calm where ever I go.
Nice find Jeff, great video.
Intervju with Rachel Pang, only in Swedish (sorry)
This one has been doing the rounds for quite some time.
I put a version of the poster up at work: “Keep Calm and Drive a SAAB” (With the Griffin at the top in place of the Crown). I’ve been asked for copies by other Saab drivers! To make your own, google “calm-o-matic”…it’s free and it’s fun.
I am very calm …. but no news today? 🙂
Thanks Jeff for sharing it’s story. Great video 🙂 Great way to start the day.
In the US you cab buy Keep Calm and Carry On items at Disney’s Epcot Center in Orlando at the English Pavilion of course.
I actually saw them at a local grocery store here in Portland, Oregon last weekend at the checkstand.
in comparison to this image everything else is franky boring. When I think of “Keep calm and carry on” this lady will be in my mind-along with Saab.
