Jamming for a Cause

Culture jamming can be broken up into a couple of categories. Commercial, Social and Political. This one picture in particular deals with Politics. Culture jamming is a way of subvertising, using popular or common advertisements and changing them to make a point. Using this mass media allows groups, activists or individuals to make a satirical commentary. Most of these advertisements are seen on billboards or posters around the world. This sign in particular plays with a common STOP sign that is on most corners in the world and speaks about the war in Iraq.
