Pop Up Lisbon 2010: Bird shit advertising

PopUp is an urban culture festival taking place in Lisbon from November 4 to December 11. This year, it has "Urban Nomads" for a theme and pigeons as their icon. Torke was invited to take part on the exhibit as an artist and also asked to develop a low cost and high impact stunt to advertise the festival. Since the connection between Pop Up and the pigeons is well advertised, we chose to take the thing birds do that is the most spread around the city: their shit. Thousands of pigeon shit stickers were put on cars, ATMs, stores and even people near the places where Pop Up will happen. Nothing escaped this true artillery, we were more efficient then the pigeons themselves.

Advertising Agency: Torke, Portugal

Commendable bravery, and in synch with the client/TA: looks like a straight-to-successful trigger of recognition.

Of course you *did* couple it with post-gig wipes.... right?
You can't have left the lasting impression of shii...
