in napoli they wouldn't notice,

anyway too much trashing and 2 words don't excuse this way of advertising.

this is interesting - very unusual media usage. A good-enough idea too.

accident, trash, slow down of traffic, people picking things up FROM THE GROUND. Apparently Kolkata is not bothered at all by that. What a great city for ambient stunt.

For your kind information, let me tell you, O & m made sure that not a single piece of paper was left on the streets. All the papers got cleared within 3 hours of the activation programme.

What if "Please keep your city clean" is another campaign which is suppose to be executed by same agency.

How do you get away with littering a city like this? And if you do get away with it because people are so used to littering, why would anyone bother to pick up what they perceive as litter off the street? And the copy only works during and immediately after the crap falling. Copy doesn't mean anything if I chanced upon the already fallen crap. This sucks.

no one would connect freedom to that, especially when it's just laying on the ground.

This would be a great piece for a sale on the 'fall collection' or a screening of 'the fall guy':) o.k. i need some sleep.

But yeah...a pox on u for littering the streets in India.


Not all who wander are lost.

@ IMke
I think they would sprout brooms through manholes in such a case
