Get In My Belly-Toronto Ad Takeover

Sometimes public ad takeovers are used to critique the system of outdoor advertising, the companies being advertised, or in this case the political system which perpetuates commercial control of our public spaces. A PublicAdCampaign reader writes us...

"This is a takeover of a billboard in the east end of Toronto, 355 Eastern Ave, spoofing the new Mayor Rob Ford who is very anti-street art, he ran on a platform of ending the 'gravy train' at city hall and won big time. Our little new dictator." Artist Unknown.
