There has been a vacant/ parking lot on 5th Ave for years. Recently, Commerce Bank has purchased the land. They originally wanted to build a new branch with a drive-thru window. However, folks in the neighborhood raised a ruckus. Commerce relented on that point but are going ahead with the new building.
Right before they fenced off the area, someone spraypainted "The Last Thing This Corner Needs is a Bank." Once the work began, this message was clear for all to see. Then, the bank got sneaky and decided to have the workers park a truck in front of the message. Obviously, this solution wasn't the most practical one since the truck must have been necessary for construction purposes.
The new solution? How about painting over the word "bank" in bright orange? Now, not only, does Commerce make itself look ridiculous, but they are doing a damn good job of highlighting the word (even if you can't tell from this picture) that they are trying to cover up. I love it.
