A Socially Responsible Graffiti Pen?
It often baffle me why people would deface public property. But one U.K. retailer is selling a more socially acceptable graffiti pen. The Grime Writer is a marker filled with detergent that cleans as you tag — like a Tide pen for street art.
BoingBoing warns that this likely isn’t more legal than spray paint: “here’ve been successful prosecutions against companies in the UK that paid ‘street teams’ to ‘reverse-graffiti’ their messages by using detergent and stencils to selectively clean away grime from public walls, leaving behind commercial messages.”
