Had Keanu taken the blue pill, then moviegoers might never have experienced the unique disappointment that is a Hollywood trilogy franchise. That’s right, no Matrix Reloaded (2003) and no Matrix Revolutions (2003). Spoiler, he took the red pill and the rest is blockbuster history. The latest issue of Garage uses the old red pill, blue pill bargain as a point of departure for an editorial by photographer Yvan Fabing and stylist Phoebe Arnold that stars amongst others Lineisy Montero. Just like Keanu’s character Neo comes to learn of the true nature of existence, so too can Garage readers unlock the digital mysteries that lurk behind the page with the GARGAGE Mag augmented reality app. Readers who scan Lineisy (pictured) will experience a manifestation that is even more titled than Lineisy’s adidas Original cap. Best part about this trip of Garage’s is no extraordinary suspension of disbelief is required to enjoy the spectacle on the page.
