What initially looks like a wheat paste ad for Wear a Mask perfume is actually a street art project from real-life perfume company D.S. & Durga. But is it really just an ad, or is it an artsy public service announcement? The burning question being: Is Wear a Mask eau de parfum a thing that exists? I can’t get a straight answer on that.

Spotted outside a boarded-up tapas restaurant, the ad copy describes the scent as embodying:

Notes of 70% reduction in transmission, peace lily, and caring about other people.

Popular D.S. & Durga scents include Burning Barbershop and Mississippi Medicine, so this could be real, but it almost doesn’t matter, because the message is clear. The brand has a brick-and-mortar store located in Greenwich Village, Manhattan (currently closed due to the pandemic), but their perfumes and other body products are also sold online, and through high-end retailers such as Nordstrom.

Just as ABC did for a TV Show Reboot that is, thankfully, no longer on the air, Playstation has launched an immersive ad campaign for the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man Game in the Subway Cars that run on the S Shuttle line along 42nd Street between Times Square and Grand Central Station.

Spider Man Subway Car Interior

As you can see, the cars are quite vibrant and inviting on the exterior, but the interiors are also full of fun details that you might miss if you don’t look closely.

And while at first glance it appears that some inconsiderate riders have left their newspapers behind on the seats, let’s take a closer look.

The trip is only one-minute between stations, but the car was still a kick to ride in!

Okay, this is insane right? Insanely Clever, granted, but, well just insane otherwise. Some creative Ad Exec deserves an award for coming up with this image of a Raid Roach Bait Trap shaped like an Ice Cream Truck with the sign “Sweet Death” hovering over it. That is so awesome. If only the traps were actually shaped like little Ice Cream Trucks. And now I have that Misfits song in my head. You know the one I’m thinking of…

Pink Thing of The Day: Vintage 1950s Bathroom

I moved into the house I grew up in during the early ’60s. Our house was considered to be very “Modern” for the time, and we weren’t lucky enough to have pink bathroom fixtures, but I had a few friends whose family bathrooms looked a lot like this. Me = jealous.
