I came very close to walking right by this subway art outside the Subway Bar in Williamsburg. “I regret not doing more street art,” it says. Upon visiting the website mentioned on the repurposed ad, I learned all about the Regret Project, whose mission is to turn your greatest regret into street art. From regretproject.org:
So the idea of the project is simple. You tell me your regret, and I will think of a way to put it on display on the streets of New York City. I’ll document each one I do, so you have a way to find out if yours was picked, and other people can enjoy them online. I’ll include a little caption on each piece so that people can learn more about the project as well.
This ad alteration was caught by ANIMALNewYork yesterday. No word on wether the Poster Boy movement is behind it, but we have a hunch!
Don’t stare, it’s rude.

Something amazing happened after Moustache Man’s arrest—some awesome person or persons took to the subway and scrawled “solidarity” onto upper lips of ads. I am truly touched.
More after the jump!
