Kansas City Hipster Street Branding



Check a local clothing line admitting to cluttering up Kansas City streets with their advertising junk . . .

File this one under middle-class privilege or low-rent taggers . . .

"The idea of guerrilla marketing behind the brand Clever Fools came naturally, how else would we get people to see our name or our logo? No one knew of us and nobody cared about the small time idea of a lifestyle brand.

"Next thing you know, the city is covered with this random triangle design. People wanted to know why it was everywhere and how it got there. That was shocking to us, the identity was becoming recognized and reacted too."

You decide . . .

Yup', they won't be in Business long !!!

Can already tell, by their stupid HIP HOP Rap, their clueless !

Wait until the TAX MAN comes around, and nails them for NOT Paying their Sales Taxes to the state and Feds shortly,,,,

It happens to more young businesses than you think !!!

Give it 6 months give or take before reality catches up to them,,,

and Ooopps,, were closed going out of Biznessssss !!!!!!

What are they selling exactly?

@ 7:35 Same t-shirts and jeans as everyone else, sometimes bothering to rip out and replace the labels to make them look like different products.

@ 7:27, Reality might catch up with them even sooner, if there is anything like video of them defacing Public Property anywhere around! The City is getting desperate for money to shove into Out-Of-State Real Estate Developers pockets, so they might even enforce some of their Laws and impose fines for that.

@6:50, Nah, they started as a half-assed Garage Band playing at drunk High School Girls Beer Pong Parties.

Wow you all sound like the pants-shitting geezers you are!!! No wonder geezer-hater knocks you out. 'Get off my lawn" "You damn kids" Then the fucking nanny,tattletale-crazy clown croaks out "wait till the taxman comes" I get it, your lives are over. You see younger, better looking people with more money than you, doing what you never did, and you get jealous and lash out like the geezers you are! You whole sad, miserable lives revolve around waking up angry you didn't die in your sleep. You jump on TKC to lash out at people who want nothing to do with you. The high point of your wreck miserable lives is if there was a murder during the night. Then tattletale-nanny crazy clown can rail and you geezers follow suit. You guys are wholly pathetic!

8:18, it's great that you are able to pierce through the mental fog that has surrounded you since birth and produce such a well reasoned argument. We congratulate you on your perseverence. Now go back into the mental fog.

So one company believes they are so important they deserve to be allowed to paint up and plaster stickers up on public spaces. Very sad, actually.

If every retailer does this where will the "we buy ugly houses" signs go?

Bunch of kids spray painting the tax payers sidewalks and placing stickers on stop signs and stuff.

That's against the law drag them into court the evidence is right their. Make them pay a big fine or it thrown in jail with the blacks that are in jail see how they like that.

Skate boarding is like for little kids. Grow up!!

^^Bunch of pants-shitters bitching about "those dang kids." Shake your wrinkly fist some more pops! "It's against the law!" I'm telling!! Don't worry... you're going to the light soon, then you won't have to worry anymore.

I'm okay with them plastering stickers all over the already hideous urban landscape.

I'm not alright with the utterly shitty graphic design on their shirts.

Geezer Hater 8:18 / 9:08 / 9:32 / 12:05 finished his commenting in time to go to today's rally supporting LGBT kids, where he successfully inticed a young gay boy to suck his dick in the bushes.

WooHoo! The Geezer Hater has called us all "pants shitters"!
Guess we've all been told, haven't we?

No point in anyone saying anything, he's obviously the "SUPREME AUTHORITY"!

Glad he condescends to correct us all rather than just sitting around in Mommy's Basement leaving skid marks in this month's size XXXL Sweatpants and guzzling Red Bull and Cheetos!

"Pants Shitters Arise! The Worst Is Behind You!"

(Don't bother saying it, Asshole, I wouldn't let you near me in one of your wet dreams!)
