Drones And Big Brother NYPD Street Ads

Walking in Manhattan today, I’ve noticed several instances of what at first glance would appear to be a strange, provocative new billboard ad campaign from the New York City Police Department:

      I’ve contacted the author to see if he can address this. Thanks.

      • Tchoutoye

         Just rename the pics to something else than “…ads”.

    • Nirvanasteve

      *No image*
      WTF?
      *Turn off Adblock*
      OOHhh.

  • Behonest

    I would assume that those we not put up by the nypd but rather a street artist.

    reminds me of the legit police ads i see in Illinois, it has a cop who blends into the background in what looks like Active Camouflage always watching citizens.

    • iLLconvict

      I hate that commercial… Why aren’t they watching our politicians? I mean shit, we’ve had 8 Governors in Illinois since the 70’s and HALF have gone to prison. Lol.

    • Anarchy Pony

      I’ve seen TV ads like that, where the camo cops are “always watching” for drunk drivers.

      • Hadrian999

        cops love drunk drivers, gives them an excuse for mass shakedowns and warrantless searches all in the name of public safety

        • Anarchy Pony

          Excuse to set up roadblock checkpoints.

          • Hadrian999

            which are mass shake downs and warrantless searches

    the legit ad on the left is creepier than the mock ad on the right
    because the mock ad is a joke and the legit ad is serious

      I hesitate to add the millionth-and-first ‘1984’ reference to this site so I’ll just vaguely allude to it so you know what I think the picture on the left reminds me and every goddamn body of and why it’s terrifying.

         In the end, Winston learned to love Big Brother.

    There is a giant thumbprint on the left billboard. Watching is spelled wrong and the reflective image does not match the background.
