How a Canadian publication just scared off tourists from using the Mars 2112 bathrooms

A Vancouver-based online publication recently unleashed a listicle titled "Passport to the world's 12 best and worst bar bathrooms."

Hmm, I can think of some lousy shitters in the East Village... you know, I love Mars Bar ... Hey, look — the Mars Bar toilets made the list! ... and, oh... Oops!


HA, HA, HA... Anyway, some good out of it: The publication used Goggla's photos with it!

I guess they don't have fact checkers in Vancouver! Heelarious!

their confusion between Mars 2112, a Times Square tourist trap/theme restaurant and Mars Bar is just too funny!

Random, but there is a coffee table book chronicling various bathrooms in NYC in production. They used my photos of CBGB's bathroom.

Excuse me, bartender? Where are the other 34,850 square feet?

I've never actually seen the bathrooms at Mars 2112, but maybe they really do look like this.

Maybe we could take over 2112 and make it the 'new' Mars. Graffiti and fly paper, anyone?

I feel like such a jackass now for getting that Mars 2112 tattoo!
