Tube stations can be stuffy, sticky and stifling, especially during the morning rush hour.
Well, if you’re lucky enough to live (or work) in south London, your morning commute might be filled with cats.
A campaign, affectionately named The Citizens Advertising Takeover Service, or Cats, replaced 68 adverts at Clapham Common Tube station following a successful Kickstarter which raised over £20,000.
Featuring cats from rescue charities Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and Cats Protection, the initiative was started by Glimpse, a new collective which aims to “use creativity for good.”
We tried to imagine a world where public spaces made you feel good. We hope people will enjoy being in the station and maybe think a bit differently about the world around them.
Instead of asking you to buy something, we’re asking you to think about what’s really valuable in your life. It might not be cats, but it’s probably something you can’t find in the shops.
The campaign was unveiled on Monday, and people are already excited about it.
