Why So Serious? Clownify Stickers Take Over the Ads in NYC

If you’re a New Yorker, you may have noticed that some of the ads around town have gotten a little funnier. But it’s not the cold weather that’s turning everyone’s noses red, graphic designer Ji Lee is the one to blame, or maybe thank instead. Clownify Stickers is an ad hijacking project that has been making seductive ads a lot more ridiculous and funny ads a bit more hilarious. Ji Lee looks for the perfect noses to cover up with his bright red Clownify stickers, then decorates the ads in bus stops and subway stations all over the city. Unless you’re one of those people with clown phobias, this project is sure to brighten your daily commute.
