Well, yeah...but they didn`t post up a sign that says `please take`. It could be there for decoration purposes, but people would take them anyways, aka steal. ^^
It`s a pretty clever idea, but only if they understood it. Then again, if they put up an explanation post next to the billboard...it would ruin it.

If they put up a billboard hoping people will take stuff, is it stealing? Isn`t that really just giving stuff away?

I probably would have taken something, if they had something on there I wanted.

I didn`t think it was that clever. It might have seemed clever to the guy who stole the last piece of junk from there to reveal the entire message. To everyone else seeing it after that, it`s just a billboard that says "People Steal" with random junk hanging from it. Once all the items get stolen, which probably won`t take that long, it`s just a lame billboard. Besides, as Mr. Knowitall said, people might have just thought it was some promotional gimmick with free samples hanging from a billboard.

I don`t get the ad... It was just a billboard with stuff hanging off it saying "People Steal". I already knew that...

^^^Good idea! & an interesting social art experiment. But were these people really stealing? One might think that if the stuff was just hanging up there like that, that it was just some freebie promotion publicity stunt or something...
