El Train iPod Ad

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

Just be glad, metro riders, that you’ll not see on your commute something so hideous as this El Train car in Chicago. I asked my friend Joseph what he thought, and he said it was “whorish” to do that to the trains.

Me, I’m just all we have to deal with is news anchorcritters and chevy chase bank for now.

    Actually, I’m pretty sure I’ve already seen this on a Metro train pulling through a station. Or at least, it was a similar style of ad. I didn’t like it at all!

    To be fair, I didn’t say it was whorish, but that it made the cars “look whorish,” just by the colors. It helps offset the criminally underfunded CTA, to help keep fares down.

    I am glad that Metro is doing something to bring in cash besides hiking taxes or fares. If they can raise some cash by putting up a few ads, I am fine with it. I say wrap the every train with an ad.
