Broadway marked with number of the beast

666 Sidewalk-graffiti marketing is off-putting in the best of times, and is often illegal. It’s even worse when it references Lucifer. We spotted these beastly stencilings on lower Broadway yesterday, close to AdFreak HQ. Is it part of the campaign for the remake of The Omen? Does it have something to do with spaceship Jesus? Does it actually read “999” and thus is nothing to worry about? Tough questions—ones that the city’s vandalism police may be asking as we speak.
