Well, the old Fabio/Les Wexner Nationwide Ad has been taken down and there’s a new Nationwide “Life Comes at you Fast” Ad that’s taken its place a few weekends ago. The first panel appears to be a standard ad for a paint company showing a few open paint cans. In the second panel, one of the buckets is overturned and has spilled down the ad space, down the side of the building, and onto several cars in the parking lot below. The third panel sums it up with the aformentioned Nationwide slogan.
I’ve been meaning to get myself over there to take a photo, but local blog ColumbusIsOkay beat me to the punch. And what I realized from Katie’s photo is that you really need to see this ad in person to take in the whole thing at once. It’s so huge that it’s sort of hard to see all in one photo.
So what do you think? Is this art? Is it an advertisement? Or is it both?
