Does anyone know if this product still exists?

I lost a bid on it several years ago and still regret it. The item was a novelty throw Banner, with the Iconic INNUENDO album Font, and featuring all four band faces from the insert.

It seemed like the greatest thing ever, but then it was bought, and i've never been able to track one down since.

I wouldn't worry too much about it Micro, I don't think he can be too fussed about it anymore 'cos I answered the prayer but didn't get a response. The light's are on, but no-one's there....

C'mon Matt, it's packed and ready to go lol :)

Yeah, but mine is like totally rad.

Where does this banner originate? I was working in a record store in 1991 and have TONS of Innuendo promotional crap but never saw this banner.

============================================================
It's not a promo banner at all - I think I got mine around 1997/98. They may be from an Italian source, known as "Heart Rock". I'm just going to double check, and will post pics if I can :)

This is horrible!
Why on earth did they use blue when all the artwork of the album is designed on a white background!!!

1 - no, it's lovely :)
2 - it's purple, not blue
3 - it's a wall-flag - white would become discoloured too quickly.

just my tuppence-worth :)

Yeah, take a look at your "white" Innuendo vinyl. It's a lovely shade of 'creme' now.

Also, purple is considered to be a color of royalty.

Looks pretty nice... but you can always buy mine instead, Dane.

1. no, it literally hurts my brain
2. purple is blue's gay brother
3. so making it ugly to begin with will stop any deterioration as the limit is already reached?

As a graphical graduate I cannot condode these visual shananigans.
Freddie must have been quite ill when they gave this product a 'go'!
