Or, I don’t know, maybe it’s another example of a Bunksy around town these days. (Doesn’t really matter that much unless the buildings’ owners want to cut it out and auction it off. Regardless, it’s effective viral marketing* from Cinetic Media / Abramorama / Paranoid Pictures LLC for Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film in’nt?) Moving on…
The mise-en-scene today at the foot of Belvedere:

A thin red line connects these two elements.
“Ok this might be a tad cheesy but I’m excited to tour the city Sunday and check out the new works of Banksy.
Dolores Park (exact location unknown)
Mission (Valencia between 19th & 20th above Little Otsu)
SOMA (9th and Howard)
Financial District (Sacramento and Davis)
Chinatown (Grant and Commercial)
Haight St (above Villains Vault)”
Anyway, the movie is playing at the One Embarcadero these days.

* Here’s a good question:
“…do we really need significant P&A [Print & Advertising] when so much of what Banksy does is viral?”
No sir, no you do not. But check this bon mot, from 2008:
“The easiest way to not go viral is to try going viral.”
Appears as if they’re trying pretty damn hard in 2010.
**Is Scott Beale of Laughing Squid really a “fool” and/or a “lazy fuck?” Decidedly not. So it’s difficult trying to make sense of the following:
“… Laughing Squid needs me to do some research so that lazy fuck can just rip off this blog without credit. Again. Even anonymous dumbasses on ezboards.com are better at giving us hat tips than that fool.”
Must be an inside joke or something.
