A yellow brick ad returns

And on St. Mark's Place at Avenue A, the return of hand-painted ads... this time for Umbro, the longtime English sportswear company owned by Nike...

Umbro has been around since 1924 ... and their name is now part of the local vernacular, as in, "Um, bro — get me a shot and a Coors Light!"

Anyway! A quick look at other recent ads on this corner...

There's probably some kind of city ordinance about putting up paper ads on the sides of buildings and so paint is the way around that.
