Bank of America Transit Rebate Ads Get Ruggle’d

December 30, 2008

Yo, the ‘sphere be on fire about these Bank of America subway ads talking all about Subway Transit Rebate like it’s something different than what the occasional crazy dude would do in the corner of the train with his fly surreptitiously open.

The general criticism seems to be Bank of America knows nothing about “New York City Livin'” and the ads are grossly out of touch.  I don’t know anything about that, but I’ll definitely admit the ads leave me scratching my head more than nodding in agreement.  Not in a bad way, they just make my dome itchy during this dry winter season.  Is there moisurizer for your scalp?  Is that what shampoo is or does shampoo just clean your hair?  What are you going to do about that pickle, BofA?

Thankfully conceptual internet art is here to save the world from corporate tommyrot and put the “camp” back in campaign, or something.  I’m still on Central Time, give me a break.  Internet Street Artist (yeah, get high and sit on that), Ruggles, got all ISA on these PSA’s and put together a collection of New York Subway Bank of America ads that may resonate more loudly with the average strap-hanger during this Good Depression when “Bank” is just another four letter word.
