Broderick Tower, Once Again, Peels Off Ad to Reveal Whales

New, 4 comments

The whale mural re-appeared on the Broderick Tower before residents appeared inside. Yes, twice-covered by gargantuan Verizon ads this year, the mural surfaced again yesterday, as photographed by a tipster. But something is fishy on the far right. The remnant of a previous Verizon ad (not the most recent one) seems stuck to the building, like some sort of data kelp the whales are swimming through. Curious. Last time the whales were visible for a mere 24 hours before the next ad went up. Will it be here today, gone tomorrow all over again? We are not sure, but we are certain Kelly Ellsworth does not care.
