Graffiti Artists Like Refrigerators?

Graffiti Artists Like Refrigerators?

In reading through my Creativity emails I stumbled upon General Electric’s series of ads for their new write-on refrigerator.  As you can see, they’re pretty flippin sweet.

(Yeah, I like food a lot).  Anyway, there’s a clear benefit here, but I can’t say my mother in law would’ve identified with these ads when she went to buy her new fridge this year.  Perhaps GE knows something about graffiti artists that we don’t.  Either way the ads are kickass.  How they’ll work for the people who actually care about getting a new refrigerator remains to be seen.
