A Sign o’ th’ Times

Commercial: Probably the most well known form of culture jamming is subvertising. Subvertisements are creative anti-ads targeted at conspicuous consumption considered endemic of capitalistic societies. These images variously target consumers themselves or large corporations, often with a specific message to get people thinking about what and/or whyAAthey buy. [via]

Though this photo may be up there in the echelons of slightly racialist (along with that damned Cleveland Indians logo), it is also the entry point to an interesting article by our ninjas over at The Urbanist about the bombardment of commercials that is our daily reality inside of the Amerisphere and increasingly around the world.

Thanks to Eric for droppin’ us a line.
