Dave!When you walk through downtown Chicago, there's yellow banners on the streetlights saying "GODO GOOD" along with giant banners on buildings... and I even saw a metal "GODO GOOD" sculpture in a sidewalk planter. It's all part of an urban art installation that's a collaboration between artist Kay Rosen, the Chicago Loop Alliance, and the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago...

Chicago GOOD Banners
What's a "Gohdoh?" OH... that's supposed to be GO DO!

Chicago GOOD Banners
An unfortunate font choice... all I see is GOOO GOOO!

As an art installation, I think it's kind of boring and obvious, but I do like the overall message behind it, which is encouraging Chicagoans to do 100,000 good deeds by summer (which you can read about at their website).

The only problem is that I'm a cynical bastard at heart. So every time I see all those banners, there's just one thought that goes through my head. How awesome would it be to hijack the installation to at least try to make things a little more interesting...


It's just as fun as it sounds!

This would at least make people feel good.

Meh. I just think this sounds funny.

It's what he does.

Our country's only hope, really.


It's 2:30am and my brain is mooshy... if you can think of a better hijack with your fresh brain, feel free to leave it in the comments...

    I’m so glad you explained that, because I’ve been seeing those all over and thought it was some ad campaign for a new hipster baby clothing store. And I, as well, only saw GOOO GOOO.

    I’m actually less inclined to do good now that I understand the campaign.

  2. Seamus JenRun says:

    Maybe “GO DO DOOG” with a picture of Neil Patrick Harris next to it.

  3. Invader_Stu says:

    The Hulk smash one made me laugh.

    I’d also vote for you.

  4. Howard says:

    Awesome! Love poop soup the best. Not to eat, mind you, bit merely as a concept.

  5. Suebob says:

    My brain is so literal (and probably dumb as well) that I would have never figured out GODO GOOD. If there is no space, my brain won’t put one there.

    I like instructions. How about
    JUMP HIGH or

    Those are great. You really should be in charge of things.

  7. muskrat says:

    “Muskrats Rule” is always a good message to spread.

    I also like Big Pimpin’.

  8. Tracy says:

    Oh, my lou…you just make me smile. Too funny!

  9. martymankins says:

    I would vote for Dave in 2012. Heads above any one else that’s throwing their hat into the ring.
