Ugly Advertising on an Ugly Tower

Well, the inexpressibly ugly Montparnasse Tower seems to be adorned with a new, inexpressibly ugly advertisement, twenty stories high. Once again, apparently money has spoken, and aesthetic considerations have been tossed to the wind in order to allow more crass commercial exploitation of Paris to take over.

I'm not even sure what this multi-story billboard is advertising. I only know that it's ugly, and you can see it all over the city. You'd think that City Hall would object to this type of eyesore, but I suppose a lot of cash changed hands and a lot of good old boys called in some notes to get this advertisement installed.

I hope it will be removed soon.
