Brooklyn-based street artist Jilly Ballistic has added computer dialog boxes to a number of billboards and posters in New York subway stations, poking fun at the products or films they’re advertising. A Coors ad features the error message ‘We’re sorry, the product you are looking for is currently under maintenance due to a lack of quality. Please try again at a later time. Thank you‘, while a file menu is featured with the ‘Move to Trash’ option highlighted on a poster for the Adam Sandler movie That’s My Boy. Click through to see pictures of the street art series:
