Sony gang gets out of hand

That corporate gang known as Sony has gone too far this time. First they stupidly infect your computers trying to protect their lousy music, and now they want to jeopardize the health of our neighborhood with corporate graffiti. As if million dollar marketing campaigns that blanket billboards, magazines, and commercials weren’t enough, they have to resort to tagging (they call it “viral marketing”) to push their wares. It’s no coincidence that they tagged up Juan’s Market (a small mom and pop store) and not some other corporate property like the Rite-Aid, gotta avoid the lawsuits. I wonder if this is what they mean by “Working Together to Make a Difference.” A virus does make a difference, though it might not be one you want!
A tip of the sombrero to LH local Michelle for passing along the info.

Corpo Gangsta Tag

Check this out. Somebody defaced the graffiti and it was then “fixed” but without painting over the stencils. And Sony claims to not be involved? Whatever.

    After looking at these stencils even closer it’s obvious this is no ordinary home-spun affair. How in the world can you make a stencil where the eyes consist of multiple rings that DO NOT connect, yet they don’t pop right out? Anyone that’s made a stencil knows you have to leave some connection tabs to hold the image together, these follow none of those rules. I’m interested to know how it was done.
