I knew the background to the poster (and it's modern imitation), but not that it remained undiscovered for so long.

I also recall an episode of Antiques Roadshow a couple of years back, when a visitor brought in his collection of maybe 1-200 ('Aye, I've kept it under me bed all these year') WW2 posters, including certainly 5 copies of this 'KKACO' poster, all in mint/unused condition. I recall the valuer almost passing out at that point... a 'just wow' moment...

I assumed its origin was very well known by most of those using it, save the occasional 13yr old girl. It is a cool video though.
