Hey UPS? Your Indonesian ad agency stole an idea.
(click images) (L) To promote United Parcel Service's express delivery, ad agency Ogilvy & Mather Jakarta says they built and placed these "striking" installations in high pedestrian traffic areas around the city. Pretty cool looking. (R) "Pedestrian" (wood and paint, 2007) by Brooklyn-based sculptor Ryan Johnson (found here, scroll down). Jury of me says: guilty. Thanks to an anon AOTW commenter for the tip. Ad agencies don't just steal from artists. They also usurp copyrighted pop culture images. And use celebrities without permission. And of course, they steal from each other all the time.
