Station Domination, HumaneWatch Style

If you live in the D.C. area and commute on the Metro, you probably have no shortage of gripes, whether it’s waiting 8 minutes for a train during rush hour, cars without A/C, tourists who don’t understand “walk left, stand right,” the ancient trains, or simply the weird smells. But we’re hoping to make some commutes a bit more interesting.

We’ve taken out HumaneWatch ads all over Union Station, which also serves as a nexus for rail commuters and is located just a few blocks from the Capitol as well as in Metro cars throughout the system. You can see them below. For a system that gets 150 million trips a month, a lot of people are going to learn the truth about the Humane Society of the U.S.

    Nice start but HumaneWatch needs to have public ads placed in every state so people can truly become more informed of what H$U$ does NOT do with donations. 🙂
    Also watched an episode of Rick’s Restorations last night and was saddened to see them restore an old golf cart to be auctioned of to benefit H$U$. 🙁

      This is why people need to talk to their friends and relatives, as well as e-mailing the hosts of shows like that. The H$U$’s “halo effect” is still strong, despite all the recent scandals, because the so-called “press” protects them (and every other AR ideologue) almost as aggressively as they protect the current president. They literally ignore any negative information about the H$U$ unless they have no other choice but to report it; and then they try to spin it.

    Your sooo close to Baltimore with these ads. Don’t forget places like Penn Station in Baltimore which sends MARC and AmTrak both north and south. GOOD JOB!!!!!
