Crispin Sartwell encourages the defacing of billboards and other public advertising in a piece on the L.A. Times op-ed page:
What I do endorse is the art of graffiti and the concept of culture jamming. If advertisers feel free to monopolize public space from highways to the airwaves to the Internet with their commercial messages, we ought to feel free to deface these messages, critique them and replace them with our own."
How about defacing some WS Playboy Crips "ads."
