Walking Soccer Balls

Some people don't have an easy job and these guys are part of that group I'd say. I've been walking behind them for a while since we had the same direction and I noticed people started to smile when they saw them (which I guess can be a good sign as well).

It's funny to watch the different kinds of advertising "walking around" in the pedestrian area especially during the weekend. We had clowns of course but also walking sandwiches, teddy bears or other kinds of animals, different kinds of vegetables, cell phones, you name it...

Great shot. Why pink? It goes well with your other pink photos.

That's part of the advertising concept - magenta is the corporate color of Deutsche Telekom.

How funny! I suppose when you live somewhere where people walk a lot, the advertising attempts to follow suit.

what about walking preservatives? walking condom? :-D I thought I saw it somewhere before...I can't remember where anymore. Would you guys get swayed by these kinds of advertisement? I'm wondering how many percent of people would buy the products from seeing these walking ads...
