Making a statement on the oh so on display wall at the corner of Grattan Street and Bogart Street (a.k.a. Pine Box territory) has taken a dichotomous turn with a conflicting graffiti message that recently had advertisers scratching their heads.
“On one side it tells us ‘People don’t visit Bushwick for shit ads,’ but on the other it says ‘This would be a great spot for a Red Bull ad.’ I just don’t know how to interpret that,” rued Catherine Calfskin, the spokeswoman responsible for explaining away a COACH ad that appeared off the Morgan stop back in February.
The duality of the message left so many lustful advertisers’ heads spinning that the Committee to Scrub Out Confusing Graffiti had to whitewash it immediately. “Now we’re back to square one, and corporations can continue to battle it out for who gets a spot on this coveted and primo space,” remarked Rufus Amoral, the 33-year-old head of the committee. Since the message has been removed, advertising bids from the likes of Vans, Hot Topic and Pac Sun have come in, knowing full well how to cater to Bushwickian millennial nostalgia.
