Lady Gaga might be feeling a little played out these days, but her ads for skater brand Supreme are still inspiring creativity in Nolita. Earlier this month, Rag & Bone got their revenge on the posters plastered all over their boutique by turning them into ads for their own label. Now, at stalled project 290 Mulberry, some anonymous hooligan has taken the ads outside the realm of commerce altogether, drawing sunglasses on her Gaganess, gluing on little craft-store eyeballs, and renaming her "Mr. Googly Eyes".
