Police Adverts - Overshadowed

The recent Police recruitment adverts, seem to have been overshadowed by their recent conduct. Behind every community bobby lies the shadow of a violent riot cop.

Whilst out cycling one night, the Space Hijackers noticed that some clever sort seems to have a key to the bus stop advertising boards.

As all of the police recruitment adverts in the east end seem to have a rather more sinister shadow added. We can only assume that the cunning pranksters simply cut out a cardboard cut out and then slipped it in behind the Police posters.

However they managed it, the effect was quite striking, and shows the police in somewhat of a more honest light. The beauty being that the adverts look normal in daylight, and it's only when the night draws in and the backlighting is switched on that they appear.

roll on mayday...
