San Francisco Giants Ads Stolen

kirshenbaum bond San Francisco launched new San Francisco Giants wallscapes and bus shelter advertising at the end of March. Since the launch, an estimated 15 bus shelter advertisements have been stolen by what is assumed to be Giants fans. The bus shelter advertisements include shots of Barry Bonds, Moises Alou, Jason Schmidt, and J.T. Snow photographed to appear as giant figures. Stolen bus shelter advertisements are being replaced, but, apparently, this thievery is indicative of San Francisco's insane love for their hometown baseball team.

While it's a pain to replace stolen goods, I hope the client and agency both see this as a sign of the campaign's success, a la the recent Sponge Bob thefts from BK roof tops.

David, too bad the Sponge Bob thefts were orchestrated by the agency to get free PR.

I'll assume is the case in this instance as well.

I understand the headline on the Barry Bonds poster has become strangely swollen and puffy. And the weight of the paper has mysteriously gone from 30-pound stock up to 250.
