So that's what the kids are calling it these days…

Ladies, our first guest post. Let the people speak. * k

This is actual photo advertising from the side of the TriMet MAX light-rail in P-town (This sighting was on the Red Line at the Airport). I’m sure that the concept looked innocuous on the marketing storyboard, but it took a bit of a turn once they applied the photos to the rail cars. One can only assume that the maintenance crews got a bigger kick out of it than the commuters… Apparently word leaked to TriMet soon after and the “jacking point” decals mysteriously disappeared.

and I thought it was funny when the next top models' heads were thrown into warped angles when windows were opened on LA Metro buses. This is a much better example of mega-advertising gone awry. Guest blogger approved! *L

why was that the only jacking point?
