TrustoCorp Hijacks NYC Subway Signs, Phone-Booth Ads

Artists revel in 'hilarity and hypocrisy'

The wiseass street artists at TrustoCorp are replacing reality-TV posters on New York City phone booths with ads touting The Real Housewives of Baghdad and The Real World: North Korea. What, those aren't real shows on truTV? Who knows WTF that outfit's showing these days. A few weeks ago, Trusto added happy messages to NYC subway signs. One reads, "Everything is fine." If the train's heading to Flatbush, that's highly debatable. The group is pledged to "highlight the hilarity and hypocrisy of human behavior." Most New Yorkers believe the Bloomberg administration's already got that covered. More images after the jump. Via Laughing Squid.
