Now, the way that the Mission Local was talking, I was thinking that Microsoft was heading for a six-figure headache over the whole Windows Phone / Maroon 5* / AT&T semi-permanent-chalk sidewalk ad illegality imbroglio.
But then when you look at these glowing green ad things on Valencia and when you grab a random abandoned bottle of liquid something (turned out to be soap, the nozzle’s mostly busted) sitting on top of a trash can nearby and then you start scrubbing to see how hard it is and then two minutes later, the ad is gone, más o menos, bingo bango.

Not so tough now, are you, Windows 7 Phone ad?
(To do the job properly, what you’d need is a floor brush from Chizhou City Changsheng Wooden Handicraft Factory or someplace.)
So, problem solved. Now, I know only one thing:
I gots to get paid.
I knows I gots to get paid. ‘Cause I just saved your bacon, Microsoft / Waggener Edstrom Worldwide.
Have your people get in touch with my people.
And, of course, mum’s the word and Bob’s your uncle…
*BTW, the concert’s already over with – I would have told you about it but I find the Maroon 5 oppressively girly and then you probably would have had to do a lot of hurry-up-and-wait to actually garner admission.
