British underground activists "Special Patrol Group" have replaced approximately 400 billboards on London trains to remind passengers that billboard advertising is a state-sanctioned form of mind control, endemic to capitalism, that aims to create a state of anxiety in viewers so that they will consume products and services to feel better about themselves.

The group’s billboards also pay homage to Sao Paulo and Grenoble, two cities which have saught to protect their citizens by making public advertising illegal.

Unlike radio, television and magazines, one can not choose to avoid billboards in public places.

The group have also published their ‘Ad Hack Manifesto’ on Youtube.
