Selina Meyer's upside-down face graces 'VEEP' commemorative stamps
HBO bids adieu to the show with one big screw-up
Mar 29, 2019
Farewell, Selina Meyer! The final season of the political comedy “VEEP” begins this Sunday, and to bid adieu to Julia Louis-Dreyfus' dysfunctional politician, HBO has created a Selina Meyer Presidential Forever postage stamp. But true to the spirit of the show--they botched it.
The commemorative 55-cent stamps feature a portrait of Meyer, but it seems the printer messed up because her face is upside down.
The stamps were distributed to 10,000 Washington Post subscribers in the D.C. area today.
Also as part of the farewell, HBO has also partnered with D.C.’s Hamilton Hotel on a new VEEP-themed suite and lounge. Featuring original props and memorabilia from the show, it includes a replica of Meyer’s Oval Office decked out with her oversize portrait, a presidential seal, flags and more. Those who stay in the suite will also receive a copy of Selina Meyer’s autobiography, “A Woman First: First Woman” and a sheet of the VEEP stamps.
