The Marc Jacobs store on Mercer Street has apparently been attacked by a pink paint-wielding vandal. A tipster sends in these photos:
"ART" it says, the paint splashed onto the sidewalk and neighboring buildings. It's unclear what the graffitist is trying to communicate here.
The tipster asked the three Russian guys who are cleaning it up, "Is this an art show or marketing or vandalism?"
"Oh yes," said one worker, "it's an art show. No, I'm kidding. Someone make a joke."
In the annals of anti-chain store insurrection, can we add this incident to the recent Starbucks egg toss and the 7-11 window smash?
