Boring Neighborhood Watch Signs Pimped With Movie And TV Characters
Artist Andrew Lamb updated Toronto’s “neighborhood watch” signs to make them noticeable again and maybe even more effective. The signs are scattered around the area warning potential criminals that, in theory, no one is going to let them get away with their troublemaking. But the problem is the signs have been there forever and everybody is used to the, so they essentially mean nothing. Add to that, that the original white-on-white logo was nondescript and boring in the first place. But not anymore. With his edits to the signs, Lamb reminds passersby, whether potential rabble-rousers or not, that this neighborhood really is being watched by Bruce Willis, Scully & Mulder, Bill Cosby and more.
