About ten or fifteen years ago, there were really cool stencils of Peter Frampton's face and hair with PFF over them painted onto silver electrical boxes around the Lansdale and Blue Bell, PA, area. You can barely make out where two next to each other were painted over or buffed out in front of the above location, and there appears to be a photo from when they were visible at https://www.flickr.com/photos/umlautsteve/2592453067. I remember researching online at the time, and finding on message boards that the images were called stencil art, not graffiti precisely, that the artist appeared to be male, and in the Lansdale area. He appeared to be a Temple University art student, and did some stencils on sidewalks around Temple, too. He also posted on a stencil art message board photos of baseball style caps lined up in a warehouse with the stencils on the front, and if I remember right, he had another design, perhaps pertaining to the Rolling Stones. PFF, once its meaning was learned online, was an obvious reference to the Peter F**cking Frampton comment in the fabulous movie, High Fidelity, from this tremendous scene dealing with the irony of super hot Lisa Bonet singing the lame Frampton song, making it not seem lame when she did it, which can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5jtp5oAcWY. If you have any better information, please comment below. If you know of an existing PFF stencil, please photograph it and post it as a Cyber Plaque.
