Well, as expected ever since those floodlights went up a month ago on the giant scaffold covering the former Habitat premises, Abercrombie are taking advantage of their prime pitch on College Green by advertising their arrival to the city – and neighbouring planets – with a vast advertising banner depicting a scantily clad youngster in striking monochrome tones. It has to be said it is exquisitely finished – the canvas as taught, polished, nipped and tucked as yer man’s torso.
Of course the big boys get away with such enormously lucrative free advertising without a whimper from DCC, even though such an initiative could be used to restore historic buildings across the city if the will was there.
According to the Irish Times…
The Dublin banner has drawn criticism on grounds of taste, and council officials are investigating whether the four-storey advertisement complies with planning regulations.
