A subway car really is a great place for advertising, what with the captive audience and all, but most of the time the featured campaigns aren't too memorable. That's not the case with Cottonelle toilet paper's latest effort. Roving Racked photographer Will Femia, who snapped the shot you see above, reports: "This car on the S train was done entirely, walls and all, to look like it was lined with toilet paper. Ick." Let's just hope no one tries to use the pillow-soft paper.
