A Trap for Mosquitos, Ads Attract Unwanted Attention

I was just turned on to Lazinterruptus, a spanish based anti ad campaign. I emailed to get in touch and this is what they had to say about their actions. All I know is I have to get my ass to Spain.
Luzinterruptus is an a Street Art Collective and we carry out installations in the cities. Our last anti ad campaign was misquitos but we have others like Deadly wounded Advertisements we carried out in april. You can check out all our installations in our blog www.luzinterruptus.com. We have the information in spanish and english.

On nights of unbearable heat, mosquitos feed on even the handsome and perfect models, with smooth skin, that our exhibited everywhere in the advertising spaces in the city. And it is the beautiful and intense light what attracts them and makes them fall towards it-not knowing it will be their end for sure. [More Here]
