Thanks to a fellow redditor, I figured out that this LIFE magazine cover in Wednesday's episode most likely IS a nod to season 5

99 Luftballons: "99 Luftballons" (German Neunundneunzig Luftballons, "99 balloons") is an anti-nuclear protest song by the German band Nena from their 1983 self-titled album. An English version titled "99 Red Balloons", written by Kevin McAlea, was also released after widespread success of the original in Europe and Japan. The English version is not a direct translation of the German and contains a somewhat different set of lyrics.

You absolutely nailed it. Thank you so much! permalinksaveparenteditdisable inbox repliesdeletereply [–]siahbabedblsiah[S] 2 points 11 hours ago I know I know, us AHS fanatics tend to over think things. My eyes kept gravitating toward the pile of Life Magazines while Pepper was in the asylum's library, and the cover of the top issue left me curious. It took me awhile, but I found it online. It's from 1960, and is portraying the start of Nixon's campaigning. The most obvious thing to stand out were the balloons. IF this is some sort of Easter egg, then why balloons? We're already in a freak show themed season, so how could this play out (if it's a hint). I could be over thinking this, but I can't shake it. We know Murphy sneaks hints about the future of AHS into episodes. Could the next season revolve around something presidential? Possibly "the government killed JFK"? Who knows. Anyone else over think this? permalinksaveeditdisable inbox repliesdeletereply [–]Miscontinued 2 points 2 hours ago I absolutely see this next season going the way of secret gov missions (circa 40's-50's) like the Manhattan project or the A bomb. If they film at any desert location ... that will seal the deal for me. My uncle (weird factoid) is a missing persons listed with the gov. He worked on the a-bomb and was a scientist for the Manhattan project, he went missing in 1949 and the FBI just released to our family permission to search for his remains. They had some weird codes using imagery to notify someone else at closed meetings of the projects they were assigned to. permalinksaveparentreportgive goldreply
