On her routine commute from Brooklyn to Times Square, Candy spent a lot of time looking at ads of sexy beers and goofy reality shows. The average American is exposed to over 3,000 ads everyday and these images are increasingly entering our public spaces. This is not a requisite of capitalism, and we should be able to walk outside without being informed about the latest alcoholic beverage or fruity shampoo. Many citizens have responded to advertising posters with the gusto of grade school disobedience. Their weapon: the pen. Their mark: the scribbled moustache. But why stop there? What’s the hurry? Project Moustache edits outdoor advertising with the distilled mark of the people: a big, burly, well-drawn moustache.
