We Brought Existential Dread to Wilkos
False Positives is a brand of parody household items, celebrating the dark vein of pessimism that runs through British comedy. Based upon the cutesy wooden signs, frames and prints found across different stores, (we're looking at you Wilko) False Positives aims to bring a bit of humorous realism to a market saturated with vomit inducing positivity.
