    No image.

    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.

      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.

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

  4. the legit ad on the left is creepier than the mock ad on the right

      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. 

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