Have you been struggling to answer the question “HOW DO I LET AN ENTIRE SUBWAY CAR KNOW THAT I HAVE BEDBUGS?”? Well look no further!
*Based on a true story.

qr codes are such a failed attempt at advertising.  It really says something when 80% of college-aged people have no clue what they are for.  I know what they are for and I still hate them.  Nothing like attempting to scan a qr code unsuccessfully because you can’t get a good picture of it (out of focus, insufficient lighting, motion, etc.) to make you not want a product you could have had a memorable URL that most people can understand AND use!

QR codes take you to a website right? How does that work on the subway when most of the trains are underground?

I tried scanning some of the codes on the OP’s tumblr and found that Google’s goggle app for iPhone tries to do a google search for the URL rather than taking you to the address that is the URL, which, of course, takes you a page of irrelevant results or none at all (who googles a URL?)
