"The times are tough now, just getting tougher

This old world is rough, it's just getting rougher"

Cover Me, from the album Born in the U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen



This album cover recreation was the third photo in the Care Home Album Covers series, and recreated Bruce Springsteen's 1984 album Born in the U.S.A. Since Martin's face was not in the photo, more attention to detail was required to ensure that the right pose, hand. Robert used Martin's own jeans, white t-shirt, belt and cap. This photoshoot also has a reference to the psychological term false memory, a phenomenon where a person recalls something that did not happen or recalls it differently from the way it actually happened. In this case it is the baseball cap, that many think to be a bandana. Many viewers of the recreation commented that this was the first time they realised that it was in fact a baseball cap. Although initially disappointed that his face was not included, Martin became quite proud that so many people had viewed and liked his bum.
