Wired has an article on the San Francisco backlash against Sony's latest 'urban' ad campaign, featuring drugged out little cartoons holding PSPs painted on walls. What sets these ads apart from past spray painted ads, is that they feature no text, and are basically a blank canvas for agitprop. With Chicago's history of subverting corporate graffiti (Remember the Axe incident?), I'm waiting to see some "creative reinterpretation" of these ads here in Chicago.
