Going through our mailbag, we came across this from a reader sent to us back in October:
These have been appearing on the bus shelter at Pico and Motor for the last couple of weeks (right across from the Fox lot where it'll do the most damage) . I forgot to take a picture of the one where this person calls the people responsible for the ad a "bunch of slobs". I was trying to come up with something pithy to say but I'm part of Hollyweird, so I'm not capable of higher thought.
We see how you high-strung art directors might get your tighty whities in a twist seeing an excellent example of key art like this being defaced; however, the bus shelters may be privately owned, but the poster is viewed from a public space. As Fran Lebowitz once said, “Your right to wear a green polyester suit ends where it meets my eyes."
In answer to the editorial comments slapped onto these works of art and commerce: Hollyweird is simply markeing to its most actively engaged viewership, which just happens to be in a state of arrested adolescence. The stupid, the tasteless, the violent and the offensive are a prized demographic and higher thought will only result in low ratings and flat opening weekends.
