In pics: The best of the guerrilla stickers on the London Underground
We're currently updating our galleries to work with #newJOE. Please bear with us!
Passengers on the London Underground may well have been taken aback by a few rogue stickers on the Tube of late. They would have got a good laugh out of them too.
Commuters, for example, wouldn’t have previously known much about the existence of a station called Nightmare on Elm Street, or that they could avail of a so-called ‘fun seat’ which allows passengers to drink smoke and even fornicate.
Such a station and such a seat don’t actually exist, of course, but are both creations of a group known as Stickers on the Central Line, an underground – how appropriate – group who have gained notoriety for placing a series of stickers that have appeared on underground trains and stations across London in recent times.
The group have become popular on Facebook, but they’re far from popular with the British Transport Police, who told the BBC: “The costs of graffiti are substantial for the railway industry in terms of repairs and clean-up, and can leave permanent scars on the infrastructure.”
Not so harmless after all then, but they’re pretty funny all the same. Check out the best of them by clicking next at the top of the page.
