Spotted: Disinformation Pillars

Astral Media's blocky advertisements get schooled—literally—by annoyed civilians.

SPOTTED BY: Eli Singer, followed up and photographed by Kyle Bachan

WHERE: College and Bathurst streets

WHEN: Saturday, 4:30 p.m.; photographed Sunday at 7:30 a.m.

WHAT: On Saturday afternoon, some unknown/heroic Torontonian(s), clearly fed up with Astral Media’s enormous info(less) pillars that have been sprouting up around the city, decided to take a stand. Two blackboards, which anyone can use and contribute to, have been draped over both sides of the Astral ads, complete with trays of chalk. Passersby, taking up the cause, haven’t been shy in using them.
