City condoms no longer subway-themed

by Benjamin Kabak


I have a soft spot for the New York City condoms. One of my first posts back in January of 2007 tied together subway lines with themed condoms and helped propel me to Internet stardom. It is with a heavy heart that I post the news then that New York City has redesigned their themed condoms, and the wrapping is no longer evocative of the MTA’s subway bullets. Free condoms with the new packaging are available throughout the city today. [City Room]

I know. No more subway lettering. Isn’t that depressing? The new logo is inferior.

People were hawking these (i.e., handing them out free) in front of Port Authority this morning. It was a Valentine’s Day release!

So the one in my wallet is a collector’s item?

I wanted to take time to let you know how much your work made my day. It is incredible how a piece like yours can enliven people. Hope you make more work like this one.
