Culture on the Cheap
The Reign Of Advertising Terror Continues
Not content with tormenting Crosstown Local patrons with images of deformed feet, the MTA has kicked it up a notch with this advertisement touting “Hongo Killer”. It is emblazoned on a B61 bus headed to Ikea Terminal.
This is Mr. Hongo. Or would that be Mr. Killer? This sexually ambiguous little character might be cute, but what he seeks to eradicate is most decidely not.
A one hour bus ride and negotiating swarms of errant house apes are child’s play compared to the horror that is el hongo. Ikea crazy Greenpointers have your Metrocards ready, your chariot to affordable Scandinavian style has arrived!
