Very good use of a tired medium. It's hard to use something that's so cliche well.

Too many cooks in the kitchen....

Okay, but larger question: were these "guerilla" applied? Or did they bother asking the landlord if they could use his elevators like this? I'm betting that, in NY anyway, if these appear, they'll be midnight strikes, the decal equivalent of graffiti, and they'll be taken down just as quickly.

Solid idea, effectively communicated and really makes you think about the plight of the prisoners.
