    The rooftop potatoe chip install must have been fun. I hope on their website they have a web cam to show the peoples faces as they walk by. Very memorable.

    The potatoes is the weakest. Most people will not make the connection between what’s hanging above their heads and the sign just below. They’ll just go, ‘huh? what’s that over my head” and giggle and keep walking. Cool idea, just over most people’s heads.
