Wanksy, a street artist from Manchester, England, is sticking up for The People by calling attention to potholes with chalk-drawn dongs. The unidentified artist hopes that by defacing those pain-in-the-ass holes, they will be fixed quicker, and so far it looks like it’s working.
During a recent interview with The Manchester Evening News, the uninhibited artist explained, “I wanted to attract attention to the pothole and make it memorable. Nothing seemed to do this better than a giant comedy phallus. It’s also speedy, I don’t want to be in the road for a long time. It seems to have become my signature. I just want to make people smile and draw attention to the problem.”
Smile, they will. Such a crusader.
