Look out below! In this 3-D ad for the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week programming, a prehistoric Megalodon shark appear to leap from the facade of a building on 23rd Street, overlooking Park Avenue South. Very scary!
A man standing near me on the sidewalk asked what I was taking a photo of. I pointed across 14th Street and replied “Pink Bus. Ad” Because, Pink Bus Ad.
For everyone else like me who had/has no idea what Trixie Motel even is, beyond a show steaming on Discovery +, you can get the lowdown at This Link.
You gotta love this image. In July of 2008, The Discovery Channel used bicycle taxis as a medium to advertise their popular Shark Week programming. The “pedicabs” could be seen in New York City where drivers were outfitted as Life Guards and gave free rides to passengers for eight hours a day over the six day run of Shark Week – so cool!
