The free advertising from passers by, coupled with the free
advertising from the newspapers reporting it makes this seem like the
writing on the wall: good ROI for USD 1050, we will see more of this
chalk advertising (probably on larger stationary objects such as:
bridges, walls, water towers, and older fat people).
