Origin[edit | edit source]

Fess Parker (1924-2010) was an American actor most known for his roles as American frontier heroes Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone in the Disney miniseries Davy Crockett, which ran from 1956 to 1957, and the six-season NBC series Daniel Boone, which ran from 1964 to 1970.

Unlike decades prior, which were marked by The Great Depression and wartime rationing, 1950s Americana was largely characterized by a large desire to spend. Economic growth under the Eisenhower administration allowed the average American family's spending power to increase by 30% by the end of the decade. This, along with the drop in television prices in 1953, allowed for mass marketing to hit whole new levels of success.

The costume worn by Fess Parker as the titular character of Davy Crockett helped spawn one of the first post WWII mass marketing fads. Tales of the strapping frontiersman entranced viewers, who felt immense pride over their history in the face of a rapidly changing world.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Imbued with Parker's marketable image, when worn the artifact creates a connected subconscious between individuals who come into contact with the user and the affected, which can quickly multiply to hundreds if not thousands in minutes. Victims will uncontrollably drift into others' thoughts and memories until eventually they become homogenized to act out the subconscious desires of the user.
