McDonald's trolls California highway with illegal-to-remove poppy logo.

Update: looks like it's just a concept. Mickey D's is mum on the seed-bombing stunt by designer Sean Click. It's illegal to remove because it's made out of the state flower, the golden poppy, which is protected by law from excavation (well, wild ones are). If that was my property, yeah-no, bye bye poppies. Via.
Previous McDonald's ad stunts: the Chicago River Shamrock Shake • the McNuggets dipping sauce elevator • and the Big Breakfast Feed Bags.

That's a myth, Copyranter. The poppies can be removed by any state employee in the course of their job. No flower can be removed from public land by unauthorized people.


Also, poppies are short-lived self-seeders. The M would become an amorphous blob in a few years anyway.

Another important aspect to note is that this is labeled as a "conceptual idea" on the designer's web page: http://www.seanclick.com/projects/12099#1

Personally, I would send them an invoice for the advert space.

That just make me think someone's done an arching McPee on the side of the road.
