A McDonald’s franchise in a rough section of London has adopted a graffiti motif into the restaurant design. Apparently they just had enough with fixing up the place after getting tagged and tagged and tagged again. Instead, they went with it.
It doesn’t sit well with some, however. The critics have announced their displeasure. Personally, I don’t really care. But one critic did make a great point, which I wholeheartedly embrace.
“Hopefully this is another step towards graffiti being really dated and corporate and thus not worth doing.”
Amen to that. Most graffiti is a bore. Some is fantastic. It’s art. But those are rare specimens.
Sadly, the McDonald’s graffiti scheme is a bore, too.
If you can’t beat em, join em, huh?
