I Heart Street Art: McMuffin Fun

Posted By on Tue, May 26, 2009 at 9:10 AM

The other day I was walking down Mission Street looking for street art when this big, bright bus shelter ad caught my eye. And not just because that bigger-than-life Egg McMuffin looks positively delicious, but because of the seemingly extraneous McDonald's logo dead center.

A closer look revealed that this was a decidedly unsanctioned use of the Golden Arches.


So what does this say about the aforementioned dialogue? Here we have a street artist of some kind turning a corporate entity's own advertising materials against it. And making a very specific, very pointed comment. I'd say this is healthy dialogue of the finest quality.

For more fun with McDonald's and its iconic logo, watch "Golden Arches" by Pangea.

This post has been brought to you by McDonald's. And shit.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
