U Can’t Touch This
Based on the look of things, the person who did this put a lot of thought into this piece. We can tell from the neatness of the words, “Hammer Time.” That aside, the piece of paper looks like it was laminated as well. At any rate, we adore the reference to the hit song “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer. We are sure that a lot of people have smiled when they walked past this silly little sign. Maybe they even danced along to the tune in their heads!
As Stubborn As Can Be
First of all, we have to say that this is quite a strange billboard. They were trying to get men to take medical tests, but we are not sure how effective their approach is. A funny passerby thought that it would be funny to drive the point home with an act of vandalism. This person pulled over and decided to show how stubborn men can really be. It is the gospel truth. No doubt, a lot of people chuckled to themselves when they saw this sign during their daily commute!
Waiting For Some Assistance
This is a case of misunderstanding. The customer thought that the staff had been bad at their jobs. For one thing, the toilet mirror promised that employees are required to wash hands. And so, they waited for nearly a whole hour without anyone coming to assist them. We are just kidding, of course. Even so, we have to admit that the signage could be a little clearer. After all, it is easy to make the same mistake.
Do Not Use The Elevator
There is no way that an elevator can help when you need to put out a fire. As a matter of fact, we are sure that it will only make things a lot worse. This looks more like a dad joke to us than anything else. Despite this, we have to admit that it made us crack a grin. Well, it is true that water is the best thing to use when you have to extinguish a fire. This little act of vandalism makes a lot of sense in our books.
We Just Want Fries
Does McDonald’s have to be so rude and aggressive? We all love our fries and nuggets from the Golden Arches, but we are a little turned off by this marketing decision. Can’t we just enjoy our food in peace without being called a loser for it? But in all seriousness, it must have been a riot to walk past this billboard as you queued for the drive-thru line. We can’t help but wonder how the vandal managed to reach that high, however. Did they have to stand up on top of a car?
Run Forest Run
Everyone likes to quote iconic lines from movies. It is a good way to show people that you are smart and cultured. Forrest Gump is easily one of the best things to have graced the silver screen. We are sure that you have watched the movie at least once in your life. When someone saw a sign that said Forest Run, they could not help themselves. A single word made this sign much more entertaining! Kudos to whoever decided to fix it up by adding “Run” to it even though they did so with Photoshop.
Statues Need To Shave Too
It is always fascinating to see a combination of a classic piece of art and a modern piece of technology. The person who decided to hand this statue a razor must have been a very witty person. However, we wonder what they were doing with a razor in their bag as they made their way across the city. At any rate, this was a stroke of genius. Hair grows back fast, and this statue needed a little help…
One Letter Away From Sausage
It blows us away to think that a single letter can change everything. Johnny Depp had been hired to model for Sauvage, a perfume line. However, a funny person decided that it was too boring for their tastes. In the end, it did not take much to spice things up. After all, sauvage is only one letter away from sausage. We have to admit that this is more interesting to look at! Mad props to the vandal who did this.
iPaid Too Much For The iPad
We are never going to hear the end of the Apple and Android argument. Some people get passionate when it comes to defending their side. Just take a look at this photo of a vandalized bus stop. Seeing the iPad ad made their blood boil, so they decided to let everyone know how they felt about the device. Even though the tablets can come in handy, some people do not think that it is worth all that money.
A Heavy Burden To Carry
How cool is this act of vandalism? We have to say that we have gotten used to the normal ‘Do Not Enter’ sign. They are often added to a certain spot for a specific reason, but the logo has gotten quite boring. Thank goodness for the person who decided to vandalize this one. We have to admit that it is a lot more effective at grabbing our attention. After all, we will likely take another look at it when we pass it by.
The Details Can Make A Huge Difference
Whoa, can you believe how different the first and the second boxes look? The one on the left looks evil, but the guy on the right looks happy. All it took was to draw in some eyebrows above the eyes! If you are an artist, you might not be shocked to see that this is the case. As we all know, the devil is in the details. Still, we can’t help but wonder what kind of guy has a Sharpie on them when they go shopping.
A Round Of Applause For The Jellyfish
There are times when a logo can be improved. This is a good example of what we are trying to say. A vandal was kind enough to write their critique on a piece of sticky note. They made a very good point. In case you are confused, this was a hand dryer that! If we did not know any better, we would have thought that same thing that this person did. It really does look like someone is clapping for a jellyfish.
You Are On Your Own
Do you have to print an important document? Well, too bad. The people at this printing center can’t do anything about that. Have a photo of Jay Z instead! We have no doubt that we would have been pissed if we had to print something, but we don’t. This is the only reason that we get to laugh about it. We wonder how many folks were frustrated to see this sign when they needed help with their documents!
No Need To Rub It In
Sadly, most people can’t afford to buy the car of their dreams. We will just have to make do with something that fits our budget. We would not call this car ugly, but it is not the most attractive one that we have ever seen either. The truth is that we feel a little bad for the owner. They must already know that this was the case. Was there any really any need to rub it in their face? Yeah, we didn’t think so.
Something Spooked The Cat
Just so you know, there are more ways to vandal than by simply scrawling something with a marker or paint. This one was quite freaky and funny at the same time. A random person had googly eyes to spare and decided to improve this statue in the only way that they knew how. In all fairness, we have to say that it does lend a little more realism to the work of art. The cat looked like it saw something spooky.
Stabbed In The Eye
This might be the coolest one on the list! How creative is that? We know that cement does not feel pain since it is not a living being, but this makes us flinch. They only had to add red paint to one of the holes to make this work of art. In the end, they were able to make it look like a face that has been stabbed in the eye. They say that a piece of art is supposed to make you feel something. This definitely did that.
A Crack In The Door
Here is another movie reference that most people will get. When you think of The Shining, we are sure that the first scene that comes to mind is, “Heeeeere’s Johnny!” That scene cemented Jack Nicholson as one of the best actors ever. This makes for a very creepy sight, and you do not even have to watch the movie to feel scared. Just so you know, we would not want to walk past this door in the middle of the night. It was a smart but hilarious way to patch up the hole in the wood.
Thanks, Tom Hanks
Don’t you just love a good pun? This waste bin just wanted to thank people for properly disposing of their trash. However, someone saw a great opportunity and decided to take it. We wonder if it was the doing of the staff or a smart-alecky customer. At any rate, this is a pretty witty way to make the sign more interesting. After all, everyone loves Tom Hanks! Do you think that this helped make people get rid of their trash more properly? We sure hope so.
Cookie Monster In The Flesh
While we agree that this was a very creative idea, it still bothers us. After all, what kind of person would throw away a chocolate chip cookie to make a joke? Sorry, but it just does not sit right with us. It was a witty way to really bring Cookie Monster to life, but we would rather enjoy the sweet treat instead. The thought of wasting it makes us feel very emotional. To be fair, this was actually really perfect. After all, you do not usually find a blue garbage bin with a pair of huge eyeballs on top.
No Need To Call The Ghostbusters
There is no need to ask the Ghostbusters for help, so you can sit back and relax. This is another ‘Do Not Enter’ sign that a stranger improved. We love how creative they got when they vandalized this! This person must have been inspired by all the release poster for the reboot of the show. We are sure that people would think twice before disobeying the sign after this happened. The promoters of the movie probably wished that they could have been this creative.
Towel Rack To Hammerhead Shark
We do not know about you, but we are impressed by the creativity that some people have. How on earth did they come up with this idea? It is an awesome one, but we would never have thought of this in a million years. At any rate, we love how they turned a towel hook into a hammerhead shark. We never would have described a hook as adorable before we saw this! Maybe we should do this at home too.
The Coolest Sidewalk On The Planet
Here is another really cool piece of art that we love! If you haven’t seen The Matrix yet, what are you waiting for? Trust us, it is going to blow you away. Once you are done, come back to us. You will then see why we love this piece of street art so much. It is neat to see what these artists can do. They somehow transformed a regular sidewalk into one of the best film scenes that we have ever seen.
How To Express Emotions
As human beings, we are capable of expressing how we feel through our faces. Inanimate objects do not get to enjoy the same privilege because they do not have faces. A random passerby saw what happened to these Verizon payphones and decided to help them express what they felt. The one on the left was grimacing in pain, while the one on the right had been smiling. Clearly, they had no idea that they were in line to topple next! Thanks to the vandal, we found out how these payphones felt.
Move Over, Tony Hawk
Even though Tony Hawk is the most famous skateboarder out there, it turns out that someone mastered it before he did. This guy got there first. How awesome does this statue look? Based on his stance, this guy was about to pull off some impressive tricks that will make our jaws drop. It goes without saying that we are just kidding. However, whoever handed the statue the skateboard had a great eye for detail. It really did look like this statue was made to be on top of a skateboard.
A Nostalgic Piece Of Vandalism
A lot of consoles have come and gone over the years. However, we have to say that we are fondest of the ones from our earlier days. Who would have thought that you can make a boring gray box look this cool? This definitely takes us back to the good old days! If you are a ‘90s kid, we are sure that you won’t be able to resist taking a photo with this transformer. We always love a trip down memory lane.
Amanda Ripley Was In Shock
If you ever want to lighten up the mood, a pair of googly eyes is going to do the trick. How funny is this? The cover of the video game was meant to be serious and dark, but this was no longer the case after this. Amanda Ripley ended up looking a lot more concerned with those large eyes! What could she have seen to make her react like that? Considering the fact that she has already gone through a lot, we are sure that it would take a lot to make her eyes go that wide.
Based on what we have seen, vandals like to mess around with ‘Do Not Enter’ signs. These simple signs hold so much potential, after all. This might be the best one yet! It shows a rock star throwing a fit and smashing their guitar on the pavement. You might want to think before you head into the area that was deemed off-limits to everyone. After all, this guy was clearly very angry for one reason or another. We really doubt that you would want to mess with him!
The Best Slow Down Sign
If you want to catch the attention of drivers, you should use a universally recognized character. You can’t go wrong with Heisenberg of Breaking Bad. It is one of the most popular shows on the planet for a good reason. In case you did not know, Heisenberg is the alias used by Walter White, Sr. We do not want to go into any more detail because it would spoil the fun once you start watching it! At any rate, one of the most famous lines on the show is delivered by him: “I am the danger.” How fitting.
Welcome To Matata
Hakuna matata… It means no worries for the rest of your days! Have you started singing along to the song as well? This photo was taken in the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand. The town was called Matata, but the name made a certain driver think of a very famous song from a Disney movie. When you go on a holiday vacation, this is the mindset that you want to have. Leave all your worries at home and enjoy the ride.
Le Speed Bump
As long as you have a black marker with you, the world is your oyster. This ‘Speed Bump Ahead’ was on the boring side, so some vandal took it upon themselves to improve it. Truly, it is impressive to see what some people come up with. Before the act of vandalism, it was just another sign that most people would not even bother to really look at. This is no longer the case ever since it transformed into a French man.
Turning It Into A Tourist Attraction
We especially like it when street artists incorporate certain things in the area into the work of art. This was a great example of that. This broken metal frame made for a pretty unpleasant sight before Bruce Lee came along. Once the artwork was completed, people would flock to the area just to take a photo of it! A good piece of art is always capable of making a huge change such as this one. Good job!
Our Favorite Scene From E.T.
This person did not use a marker or spray paint to deliver their joke, but this is still worthy of a spot on the list. Someone printed a black cutout of the famous E.T. scene. This was a magical scene that warmed our hearts! It is also one of the most recognizable scenes in the history of cinema. When someone realized that this wall lamp looked like the moon, they decided to use it as a canvas of sorts.
The Greatest Grate Ever
Does something smell fishy to you? If you just said yes, it might have something to do with the sewer grates. All right, let us talk about this seriously. It just shows us that you can turn anything into a work of art if you are creative enough. When you run out of canvas, the real world has plenty of it to offer.
From Fire Hydrant To Minion
Someone must have really liked their Halloween costume and refused to put it in the dump. It was a good thing that they found someone who was perfect for the job at hand: the fire hydrant! With its color and size, it looked exactly like a minion. The only things it needed were the goggles, jumper, and gloves.
Another Retro Throwback
Here is another one that you will appreciate if you love video games. Don’t you just love this throwback to arcade games? While Pac-Man is no longer the hottest game, it remains an icon to this day. This game changed the industry, after all. We wonder what would happen when you try to cross the street.
Creative Juices Are Flowing
Here is a visual representation of the phrase ‘creative juices.’ Even though it was not meant to be taken seriously, this is a great work of art that really makes us think. On top of that, it was a sight for sore eyes! Just so you know, vandalism does not have to look ugly to count as one. Isn’t this pretty?
A Tiny Exhibit
We are sure that museum employees can’t stand it when folks keep touching the statues and paintings. Can’t they read the signs? Some people are just disrespectful like that. We wonder if people followed the rules when they saw this tiny work of art. If you ask us, they were likely just as disobedient as ever.
Where The Wires Went
This is another piece of street art that takes the environment into account. We have no idea what happened to the piece of equipment, but the artist offered a theory. There was a good chance that someone stole all the wires inside of it. We love how well the colors blended into the background.
The Heavy Sumo Wrestler
The same goes for this work of art. This artist deserves major kudos! When they spotted the mistake, they knew that they had to poke fun at it with art. In the end, they decided that the best thing to do was to put a sumo wrestler on top of the broken poles. The drawing really drives the point home.
Call The Goats Butter
A good play on words is always appreciated. Just take a look at this pun on goat’s butter. It definitely sounds like Ghostbusters if you slur your words a little. This might not be vandalism in the same sense as the others, but this is a witty reference that made us smile! The face of the goat adds to the effect too.
A Great Time At The Party
Even though drinking can be fun, you should know your limits. It looks like this block is still feeling a little woozy after drinking two bottles of wine. We can’t tell if they are still drunk or hungover. Despite this, they had a lot of fun at the party. They might have a nagging headache now, but it was all worth it.
Always Switched On
Street art is always fun as long as nothing gets damaged in the process. This artist wanted to make a fun yet powerful message. Based on the position of the switch, it looks like it is always on. It might be worth turning it off every now and then as well. Let us not forget to disconnect from our gadgets when we can.
Just Like King Kong
Well, this is definitely one of the most creative pieces on the list. We love the fact that they added this wild animal along the sides of a decrepit old building. It is also impressive to see just how realistic it is. With all those details, you almost convinced us that the gorilla was the one to scratch the post.
Looking For Plants
We really like it when vandalism makes a good point. Things will always look better when you add plants to an area. This is the problem with contemporary architecture! There is always too much concrete but so little plants. We agree with the vandal that this place could use a lot more greenery. They’re not wrong about that.
Walking On Piano Stairs
How can you say you love music when your front porch does not look like this? We bet that this was either a music school or the home of a renowned artist. This is such a creative way to make your home look fun. However, we hope that the music piece is not there to block the way all the time.
Thanks To Chuck Norris
You must have heard your fair share of Chuck Norris jokes in the past. They say that he is an invincible guy who can destroy things without much effort. Well, that explains what happened to this bench. Kidding aside, however, we can’t help what caused it to fall off like that. Do you have any ideas?
Size Does Not Matter
This one is subtler than the other entries on the list. You will have to squint to see the act of vandalism. It shows us that size does not matter! How unique is that? We have to say that we have never seen anything like it before. We also love the fact that it shows Ant-Man and Yellowjacket in a fight. Comic book fans would love to see this.
Looking For Waldo
For the longest time, Waldo has always made us look left and right to figure out where he is. We do not know what to tell you if you have no idea what we are talking about. The pole does resemble the guy in question, but we are looking for a person and not a pole. If you have any ideas where he might be hiding, we would love to know.
Vandalism In The Winter
Winter vandalism is the best option because it is not going to permanently damage any property. Once the snow falls off or melts away, it is gone. This only makes it more exciting in our books since it is like a limited-edition offer. The act of vandalism reminds us of the Cars movies. We love how much personality this gave the cars!
Just A Web Of Lies
It looks like this window has suffered two separate acts of vandalism. We wonder if they were both done by the same guy. Even though it is hard to tell, we are sure that one came before the other. It is clear that the window was broken before the artist added the spider to the window. The result was this very cool image.
That Is So Meta
This is a very self-referential act of vandalism. The person who wrote this down listed down all the things that they hated. In the end, however, they sounded like a hypocrite. After all, they ended up using the same things that they claimed to despise. Are we sure that he really hates those things?
More Minion Vandalism
The world has truly gone gaga for the minions from Despicable Me. To be fair, they are truly very cute. The little yellow guys remind us of Twinkies that come with eyes. They are both hilarious and adorable! This vandal liked minions so much that they decided to pay tribute to these animated beings.
Beware Of Aliens
When you cross the street, you should be on the lookout for approaching cars. However, it looks like there was one more thing to be mindful of when you are in this area. Could it be true that UFOs roam here? They might not hit you, but they might abduct you and bring you to a different planet. Uh-oh.
Mutants In The Area
It is nice to know that mutants are accepted in this place. If you ask us, the X-Men deserve respect as well! This sign shows us Wolverine and Professor X, who are some of the most iconic characters in the comic books and movie series. It is hard to mistake them for anyone else because they are just that popular.
Double The Letters
There are times when you notice a pattern and decide to just go with it. After seeing that the elevator was from the EELLE brand, this person could not help but wonder if it was short for something. They figured out that it must have been short for “EELLEEVVAATTOOR” and wanted everyone else to know.
Living Life To The Fullest
You know how the saying goes… you only live once! Knowing this, you might as well do whatever it is that you like. For this person, that meant petting as many dogs as they want. This is sound advice that we should all remember. We promise you that it is going to do wonders for your mental health.
This Stairway Goes To Heaven
It is pretty cool to think that a certain word sounds like another one. This person knew exactly what to do when they saw a sign that said, “Stairway 2.” It was only missing one word before it could spell out the title of a popular song! We are glad that they took it upon themselves to complete it.
Looking For A Hiding Spot
When you are playing hide and seek, you need to be very observant. It was a good thing that this person realized where his playmate went. This was not all that hard because this guy left clues. Thanks to his muddy footprints, we figured out that he was hiding in the transformer. Try harder next time, buddy.
The Smallest Hotel Ever
We are impressed by the amount of effort that went into this piece of street art. The artist did not just get the details right but also made it look pretty! We love the miniature trees and foliage in it. The person behind this clearly took the project seriously. In the end, their effort had been worth it.
He Is Clearly Not Amused
You can turn a regular garbage bin into a better one by adding googly eyes. As a matter of fact, this rings true for just about anything in the world. It took several seconds to stick the eyes on, but it made the trash can look better. Can you imagine throwing your trash and seeing how unimpressed this guy is?
One For SpongeBob Fans
The younger generation grew up with characters like Patrick the Starfish and SpongeBob SquarePants. If you understand this reference, we are going to get along very well. When Patrick was tasked to take calls at the Krusty Krab, he does not do a very good job at it. “Is this the Krusty Krab?” a caller asked him. His only response to that had been, “No, this is Patrick.” In the same vein, this is not public health! This is Patrick!
The Liberal Farts Building
Yet again, the addition of a single letter can change something so dramatically. It seems like this vandal wanted to say something by turning “liberal arts” into “liberal farts.” If you ask us, it sounds like he has a vendetta against the department. Well, there is another possibility at play. Maybe he was actually advocating for people to fart liberally! Who knows, it might even be both.
Use The Rosswalk
Someone saw this sign and decided to turn it into an Easter egg for fans of Friends. Say what you want about Ross, but we can’t help but smile at this! All it took to make this happen was to cover up the “C” and cover the head with the actor’s face. In our opinion, it is good to make these signs more interesting. After all, this is a good way to ensure that people will pay attention to them.
Time For A Reboot
If you ever stumble upon this sign, you should probably click it without any hesitation. After all, the world is a mess right now. We really could do with a fresh start. Still, we will forgive you if you feel the need to think it over first. After all, with great power comes great responsibility.
Mugs With Attitude
You might have thought that these mugs were plain until you realized that they came with letters. When one of the store employees realized the truth, they decided to use it to send a message. They could have gone for a friendlier message, but they were just too tired. This was a good way to sum up how this employee felt about that particular shift.
