Jake Dobkin, publisher of Gothamist, has had it with corporate graffiti. In fact, he says, “Corporate Graffiti Sucks Balls.”

I’ve written about this so many times on Gothamist that I’m worried about sounding like a broken record– but apparently the big corporations have not gotten the message. This week, Sony Playstation graffiti pieces have been popping up like cancer all over Manhattan. The pieces are sometimes drawn by hand– others are wheat pasted to walls all over SoHo and NoLIta. It’s clearly a large campaign, and deserves a thoughtful, measured response. Here’s mine: corporate graffiti sucks. Sucks! Sucks! Sucks!
