#UK Activists hacked 600 Paris billboards with climate change messages from ‘corporate sponsors’



This week, 600-or-so peculiar billboards have popped up around Paris, just in time for the UN’s climate change summit.

One for Air France reads, “We’ll keep bribing politicians and emitting greenhouse gases.”

The satirical ad is part of activist group Brandalism’s latest guerrilla art campaign, which targets climate change deniers and the summit’s corporate sponsors.

More than 80 street artists from 19 different countries worked with Brandalism to create the ads.

“We are taking these spaces back, because we want to challenge the role advertising plays in promoting unsustainable consumerism,” Joe Elan of Brandalism said in a statement.

Here are some of the tongue-in-cheek ads.

A hacked ad accuses Mobil of knowing about the impact of fossil fuels on global warming.

A man and woman wade through “the climate experience.”

People sort through a trash dump, refusing to let go of shopping bags.
