Advertisements can be both annoying and invasive. Luckily for those who took the Clapham Common tube station in London one morning this week this were delighted to find the ads taken over by CATS. No, not really life kitty-cats, it was the Citizens Advertising Takeover Service. This entire project was crowdfunded by people on Kickstarter.
“We hope people will enjoy being in the station and maybe think a bit differently about the world around them.” Said James Turner, who organized the ad replacements. “Instead of asking you to buy something, we’re asking you to think about what’s really valuable in your life. It might not be cats, but it’s probably something you can’t find in the shops.”
