Hollister has decided that one massive mural on East Houston wasn't quite enough, so it decided to add another for good measure. Bowery Boogie snapped a photo of the latest, which isn't as bad as the other since it's only an image of the California state flag, though they point out it's still on the same "shit-brown canvas." Back in the day (as in, up until 2009) the spot was covered by the DKNY mural, which was naturally erased so as not to distract from the shirtless hunks who are busy making bank outside the store.
