Left-wing protesters hijacked the illuminated billboards in a Paris Metro station recently, using them to advertise their own messages instead…

 

 

 

 

The billboards were spotted in the Strasbourg Saint-Denis Metro station, with the posters displayed to coincide with the French regional elections on Sunday, which saw Sarkozy receive a severe drubbing from the left. We don’t know if the original ads were removed from the billboards, or if the signs were already empty, but these handmade posters certainly benefit from their brightly lit backdrops.
