These Urinals Play Video Ads While You Pee

These ‘Fur’ Coats Are Actually Made Using Men’s Chest Hair. Yuck.
I don’t care much for people who wear fur because I think there are many different and much more humane ways to keep warm when the weather’s being particularly unforgiving.

In a world where ads are constantly being shoved into everyone’s face at any given moment, these Billboard Blinds are a welcome change.

Urban Hacktivists Turn Toronto’s Info Pillars into Modern Art with a Message
You’ll find over 35 different billboards in the streets of Toronto which are ironically called ‘Info Pillars’, considering the fact that they’re used to display ads and not information. So what’s an urban hacktivist to do, when the redesign of these Info Pillars have replaced bike parking and caused the cutting down of trees by the sidewalks?

Brainiacs from Mars: Turning Houses into Billboards, One at a Time

Interactive Musical Poster Promotes Bands with Their Own Music
I think some people choose to give their bands really weird names so that it’ll pop out and make an impression on people. I mean, aside from fancy graphics, a neat logo, and a cool band name, what else can bands put on posters to grab a someone’s attention?
