Wait, Who’s Bill Posters?
Here we have a sign that reads, “Bill posters will be prosecuted.” Of course, this is a sign often found in Britain that basically means, “Don’t put any advertisements on this building or we’ll call the police.” But this smart-aleck graffiti artist effectively changed the way we all perceive this sign.
How did the graffiti artist do this? By simply adding another sign that read, “Bill Posters is an innocent man!” underneath the original warning sign. Now we no longer read “Bill Posters” as people who post bills, but as a real person named Bill Posters who doesn’t deserve to be prosecuted.
