The bank, N26, has super cool monochrome stickers. Someone has been paid to go around and stick them in all the super cool places for stickers to be in Berlin. Toilets appear to be the number one place. I am not sure how the stickers feel about that.
Maybe they feel that culture in its current state is dead. If banks are dispersing stickers than what’s left of counter culture? Is there one?
If adverts are primarily ironic and have coopted the humour of Tim and Eric and Adult Swim than where do people go next? It’s oppressive in a way. Not in a state sponsored sort of way, more in a stuck in the Death Star’s trash compactor sort of way.
