Fake Reality Television Shows That Could Be Real Advertised in PBS Subway Poster Campaign

Bad Bad Bag Boys

The fact that you thought this was a real show says a lot about the state of TV.

In collaboration with CHI&Partners NY, New York PBS station Thirteen has launched a shrewd ad campaign that criticizes the current state of television. The campaign’s five posters advertise fake reality TV shows, with crazy names like Married to a Mime (“She’s got plenty to say.”) and Bad Bad Bag Boys (“Clean up on every aisle.“), and will appear in New York City subways until the end of June 2013.
