billboard liberation front touts at&t & nsa collaboration

billboard liberation front touts at&t & nsa collaborationfrom threat level: The Billboard Liberation Front has struck again – this time rewriting a billboard in San Francisco’s Mission District that was hosting AT&T’s latest ad campaign touting the breadth of its network coverage.

The billboard now reads: “AT&T works in more places, like NSA Headquarters.” Formerly the sign bragged of service in Chilondoscow.

BLF says it changed the sign on behalf of AT&T and the NSA, to “promote and celebrate the innovative collaboration of these two global communications giants.”

I had no idea that Cillondoscow wasn’t just a random suburb of San Francisco, but Flickr user Kidsturk explains it:

If you see the commercials that accompany this, you can see what they’re trying to do – I work in Chicago, visit my parents in London, and shop for brides in Moscow. This is my life – I need a network that works in CHILONDOSCOW.

For more fun, check the BLF archives. And remember kids, despite all the teasing you are giving AT&T, warrantless wiretapping is not a crime. Via Xeni Jardin at Boing Boing. Photo via BLF.
