If you stand at the intersection of Houston Street and Broadway long enough, waiting to cross traffic and the street construction, your eyes may stray from the nearly naked Calvin Klein model to the moving billboard next to it. We've talked it up before, but now you can watch it move!
Racked diehards may recognize this as the former location of the perpetually malfunctioning Sony PSP billboard, but now it's Levi's turn to bring the action. The cogs remind the masses that "We Are All Workers," but that only makes us feel small and insignificant, like worker ants in the antfarm that is New York City. Oh, we get it now.
