Ad madness

IMG_0449

This has got to be one of the worst-placed ads ever. I did a double take when I saw it at Caledonian Road tube on the Piccadilly line, so took a snap. The picture’s not brilliant but you may be able to see that the ad, for Lindemans wine, carries the slogan “Joy isn’t just seeing the blues win; it’s seeing the reds go down.”

Fine in Chelsea maybe, but an estimated 36,000 Arsenal fans travel by tube for matches at the Emirates, many of them to or through Caledonian Road. It’s hardly going to boost friendly relations among fans. And I don’t think Lindemans are going to sell much wine in Islington this summer…
