Whoever did this deserves an award at public expense. Seen in today's Metro, picked up from Bristol Indymedia.

That is BRILLIANT! Those ads have been annoying me hugely, so it's good to see a parody of one. And what an apt parody.

First-rate, innit? There really should be more of this kind of thing, and there probably is, but the mainstream media so rarely pick up on it. I remember seeing a programme about guerrilla advertising about ten years ago, and it cited the case of some environmentalists in Canada who put out a TV ad on the effects of car culture - right in the middle of that country's equivalent of Top Gear.
