anti-advertising hits oakland


As seen over on SF’s very own Billboard Liberation Front‘s blog, the Anti-Advertising Agency and out-of-control prankster Packard Jennings have completed their campaign to bring you the very latest in totally unmarketable messages to make you consume absolutely nothing. Refreshing and delicious! That’s right, it’s their Oakland Bus Stop Bench Project, where “The Agency created a survey to poll residents in the neighborhoods surrounding 10 Oakland bus stops regarding what advertising tactics they found most bothersome in their neighborhoods. Jennings then developed targeted illustrations for each neighborhood and the team installed the work.” Making me proud to be in the Bay Area, for the ten zillionth time. If anyone gets pics of these, please send them in and I’ll post ’em…

    Oh cool. I so meant to blog about this but lazily never did obviously. Thanks! (And yup: makes me glad to live where I live as well.)
