TIE: Capital Metro Featuring Willie Nelson, Darque Tan

In such a media savvy city, who can accurately ascertain which outdoor advertisement resonates the loudest? While Austin's active culture jammers garnered honorable mention, e.g., "The Marines sign that someone keeps putting a Hitler 'stache on" (as if the Manchurian, MK-ULTRA intonation of "The Change ... Is Forever" wasn't creepy enough), y'all chose two of Texas' most famous exports – Willie and women. Metro's ad finds the Red-headed Stranger lamenting that with all the traffic, he doesn't want to get "on the road again," while Darque Tan features a lovely 60-foot looker catching rays. It's a good day when public transportation issues and sex appeal meet on an equal footing, Austin.
