Political sticker prank turns bikes into anti-corporate roving billboards

Corporate-sponsored bikes in London

The UK bank Barclays paid £25 million ($39 million) to sponsor a London bike-rental program, and adorned thousands of bike with its blue logo. But just like corporate billboards, the bikes are not immune to anti-corporate sentiment (and banks are currently not a favorite) as shown by this alteration, stuck to a bike in a guerrilla sticker campaign.

 Barclays does not, ahem, care about you
