Guerilla Pokemon NYC Shrines

The diabolical duo behind the #FakeBanksy art prank are at it again.

Continuing their tradition of poking fun at the cultural zeitgeist and the obsessive nature of social trends, their latest subject is none other than Pokemon GO.  

Hitting the streets of NYC, our creative director Lance Pilgrim, and his longtime partner in crime Dave Cicerelli set out to create street vigils for fallen Pokemon “victims” at Pokemon GO gym locations throughout the city, and WIRED Magazine was there every step of the way to see what they had in store.  The Pokemon GO craze continues and now people are taking to the streets to put up their own shrines for their fallen Pokemon. Remember they evolve into angels next! #RIPokemon
