I think it's cool. Skater guys that hang around the streets will like these."

No Ad_Man, he won't. I do skate and I do hate these stickers. They also look like shit. And, stickers? Really? Shouldn't we be creating better stuff than this? For how to reach the skater I'd rather have a look at this (student work, not executed in real life, but still a great idea): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7WCzNvlA8w

Think it for a while.
Then, in anytime, it will come to your mind as an idea.

Is this the future? Cheap agencies making stickers to paste on traffic signs and other ads???

This is ridiculous. Advertise responsibly ffs. Those signs are there for safety.

Compared to what? I might as well say on 70% of the ads here "Ok, now television is like getting really really old as an idea for a communication medium." Or paper is getting old!

It's not new anymore, that's what you're trying to say.

Enough with the defacing of signs. Seriously.

This is the same thing as those God awful spray paint stencils that were so "popular" a few years back. Yeah, it's FREE, but it's ILLEGAL. Which, believe it or not, is a pretty sure fire clue that this is SCAM.

Come on people. Try a little harder, shall we?

All the stickers were 100% easily removable vinyl not traditional style stickers.

You are all a bunch of design nerds. Skating is against the law dipshits.
Refacing street signs causes people to wake up in this case. It
is not always about originality, occasionally there is a justified
act in defiance made explicit upon government property. You dudes are lame.
Get a haircut.

How do these dipwads think they came up with this? Kids have been doing this for 20 years. Tell your Copy Writer that its PRO SKATES not PRO SKATE. Think about where your money is going when you hire an ad agency..... To slush machines and weight rooms... bah! Get real dorks. Death of the Ad Agency.
