The BrandalismProject, is a self-declared anti-advertisement art movement and has claimed responsibility for over 600 fake advertisements recently installed throughout Paris. The driving force behind the group's effort is the beginning of the UN Climate Change Conference.



"Amidst the French state of emergency banning all public gatherings following the terrorist attacks on 13 November in Paris, the 'Brandalism' project has worked with Parisians to insert unauthorized artworks across the city that aim to highlight the links between advertising, consumerism, fossil fuel dependency and climate change," BrandalismProject said in a statement.

The project is a collaboration between 80 artists from 19 different countries and the targets include AirFrance, Dow Chemicals, and Volkswagen, which is getting a lot of attention for perpetrating an environmental fraud.

Anti-gay protesters were picketing outside the Carolina Rebellion rock festival at the Charlotte Motor Speedway earlier this month, so one of the attendees decided to pull a clever little prank on them.

The concert goer noticed that the website they were promoting on their signs, WarningsofWrath.com, had expired, so he/she purchased the domain.

The prankster then redirected it to an extremely WARNING gay pr0n site called “ScaryF-ckers.com.”

This isn’t exactly in line with their message, but it’s sure to spark some wrath among the group.

A “pastor” with “Warnings of Wrath” has a Blogger account with a post that explains the meaning behind their name, and that page also currently includes a link to the pr0n site.

Hijacking domains as a form of protest has been happening a lot lately, particularly with theRepublican presidential candidates who failed to secure all of their domains before announcing their candidacy.
