News: Hollywood Billboard Hijack

Hollywood Billboard Hijack

Via Newsweek Tumblr.

Looks like this video and billboard hijacking is the work of DesireObtainCherish, an LA-based street team. The work isn't exactly great art, but it's an amusing form of culture jamming, in which anti-consumerist activists subvert public advertisements. 

According to the tags on the original blog post it's in east LA. 

I kind of wish they'd done something else; the sentiment, while fun, isn't exactly deep enough for my tastes. But I'm not sure what.

What would you have written instead?

I would have just blacked out the last two words on the billboard, and the brand name. A way to express the objectification of women. i'm not sure really...
