If you are a Beyonce fan, you would know that everything Beyonce does always has a deeper meaning to what she does, when it comes to the music, the clothes, etc. Fans soon came to realize that the poster actually resembled a promotional poster for the film Touki Bouki.
The film was released in 1973, which tells the story of a young couple who plan on escaping their lives from Dakar and travel to experience the glamorous life in Paris, France. The story takes a stroll through a Bonnie and Clyde type of story, where they devise plans to steal money and plan their escape to France.
#OTRII tour poster references "Touki Bouki," a 1973 Senegalese film about two lovers who steal money and clothing, then book passage to Paris to start new lives. It's considered an African cinema classic. pic.twitter.com/l64KjxzAw0
