Breaking: Blockheads Take Over Midtown

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

[For a few moments, midtown not so crushingly boring]

A Racked reader just sent these strange images in, writing: "No idea what this is—some kind of guerrilla marketing, I presume. Took these photos as they passed by my office window at 42nd/5th at 10am. They spelled GOOD MORNING NEW YORK walking in a line. The boxes rotate, so I'm not sure if there are other messages too." Either this is some sort of bizarre marketing scheme (probably) or a really boring Improv Everywhere stunt (much less likely). Anyone know what's going on here?
