levis (akzo nobel): guerrilla paint installation

belgian paint manufacturer levis (akzo nobel) has come up with a bit of an urban guerilla stunt. conceived and put into practice by belgian firm king george (the mad agency for communication), the installation consists of an XXL levis paint pot mounted onto an existing lamppost eight metres above the ground so it appears to be floating. the post itself has been painted red, creating a stream of paint that looks like it is coloring the car park where it is situated.

  • ripoff – some time ago there were McDonalds coffee lamps, same idea:

  • looks nice, however i dont see the guerilla thing in it, its clearly an add and im 100% shure sanctioned by the owner of the lamppost

    grimm says:
  • Done. McDonald’s & Nail Polish Company did it better.

    designaddict says:
  • totally agree. There´s no guerrilla element….

  • Akzo Nobel is Dutch not Belgian
