Just in time for the COP21 Climate Conference, an organization called Brandalism has hijacked over 600 outdoor ad spaces in the city, replacing them with climate change-related art … and what, at first glance, look like ordinary ads for brands like Total, Air France, Dow Chemicals, GDF Suez and Volkswagen.
The difference is, these ads reveal unpleasant truths.

The Junkyard Band (Washington D.C. 1986)

An eight-member crew of Washington, DC-based youngsters, age eleven to seventeen, the Junkyard Band played their funky go-go music on overturned buckets instead of drums because they didn’t have the money for more conventional instruments. Produced by Rick Rubin, a big fan of go go, the Junkyard Band’s only Def Jam single “Sardines” b/w “The World” earned them a place among “The Greatest Bands You’ve (Probably) Never Heard” in Spin magazine’s August 2009 issue.
