In March, citizens of Louisville, Kentucky, experienced KFC-themed pothole repairs. Now, folks in New York City, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles can tread on sidewalks bearing ads for Domino’s Pizza.

GreenGraffiti, the Netherlands-based company Domino’s partnered with for the campaign, claims all kinds of green cred. Plus, its site says, it’s doing the cities a service by washing the sidewalk (though the gross gum in the image shown here suggests that squeaky clean is not the goal, and not everyone is convinced ads are more attractive than dirt).

Good thing Domino’s is targeting walkers, since the focus of the campaign, the American Legends Pizza, has 40 percent more cheese than a regular pizza.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
