Wonder how long it'll take before some kids put those chairs on fire. (Yes, I live in Rotterdam hehe)

Well coordinated set, opulence *and* elegance - this may make me miss my bus.

Love this campaign. Also love the fact that an American openly shows his ignorance of world geography. Simple truth, if you want the world to love you, learn to love the world or at least learn where the rest of the world is.

Yeah. He might have been reacting to 'Rotterdamn' from a poster who edited his post afterward. Making someone look stupid isn't clever. Unless you're stupid, in which case, it's pitiful.

Rebranding bus stop?
That is well done but not absolutely original guys. Only for Ikea, there are already thousand of this...

Wow I never thought bus stops can be this way I would love to miss my buses on sundays and be there for a long time reading a novel.

Nice.
Definitely will create a buzz....if it can be done in enough places, in the town.

I dont get it! This is the website where you always get the "it's been done to death" comment for things that are fresh and new. In this case, you have an example of something that has been done several times, as someone points above by Ikea for example, and everyone gives the thumbs up! what the hell?? This is not creative, and its definitely not good. Ok to look at I guess. that's all.

So what are we grading here? Without the chairs, this is frigging wallpaper, no more no less, a couple of magazine ads converted from vertical to panoramic. And it's doubtful they stuck these chairs out on the streets of any major metropolitan area. Personally, I'm moving from fab to meh on this whole series.

Live right down the street from one in Chicago, and the chairs are attached to the bus stop bench.( Bill, definitely a major metropolitan area.) Definitely catches a lot of eyes, but I have heard some people while waiting for the bus that just dont get the connection to the product.

OK, a two point upgrade for the seats.
