why in English? The guys who pee are mostly the illeterate ones.
Good idea but looks fake. Agree with fifthbullet, the bottom right has wrong angle.

This idea sucks. Money would be better spent to install public urinals,like in amsterdam.

terrible execution and a very poor idea not calling to stop pee on the walls but encourage it.

It seems like encourage people to pee on walls rather than educate them.

Putting a pic of a motherly type might work better "I taught you better than this. Stop peeing on the walls"
Good grief.

Friends, Ideators and Indian Ad-Industrians,
Lend me your time (max. 10 secs). I hereby eulogise, with utmost sympathy and a heavy heart, the sad
demise of the LACS (Lowest Acceptable Creative Standard)factor of O&M, Kolkata, India. Ironically the
title of this "factor" rhymes with a word in the english dictionary which means 'Devoid of; Not
consisting of'.
On this extremely pitiful occassion let us pray hard and ask the almighty to keep us from becoming
complacent, becoming oversmart & turning a blnd eye to the great work being churned out by the other
agencies of the city. Otherwise, it wouldn't be long before all of us follow suit.
So let's keep in mind this case. And as we bury the agency, let us be grateful to it for providing us
the opportunity to learn such an important lesson.
May its soul rest in piece...oops...peace.
