Subvertising

What is Subvertising?

Subvertising is the practice of making spoofs or parodies of corporate and political advertisements. Crews like Special Patrol Facebook Group and Brandalism are currently very active and providing inspiration to Extinction Rebellion through their witty and cutting satire of companies who aggravate racial and climate injustice. Check out Brandalism’s amazing Subvertising Manuel for an in depth guide to all things Bus Stop related.
Note: Brandalism and Special Patrol Group are separate organisations to XR and any reproduction of their work must be credited.

How do I get into a bus top?

There are videos, guides and websites with plenty of info but the main piece of kit people use is a T30 key, high visibility jackets and non-descript worker clothes; it’s best to hide in plain sight and look like they belong when they are putting up the posters.

What can I print?

Where can I get bus stop ads printed?

To print bus stops sized sheets use DigitalPrinting and select 6 sheet measuring 1,200mm x 1,800mm.
There is generally a view that this kind of action is a lower level in arrestability.
