Don’t you tire of those Sponsored ads seen to the right of your Facebook profile page? Those intriguing thumbnail images that pique one’s interest – then once clicked, are nowhere to be found? 

Today I saw the recurring East Bay Bucket List Facebook Sponsord ad (below right) and immediately recognized one of Swiss artist Beni Bischof‘s artworks (below left), “HANDICAPED CAR” (verschiedene Formate, 2008/09). What on earth does that image have to do with with the East Bay Bucket List and 365 things to do in the East Bay right now? The cheesy site (Livingsocial[ly].com) misleads by scouring my photos and photos of my friends on Facebook to sell their product which in turn have nothing to do with the product being sold.

Update: ArtFagCity picked this up today –  Massive Links! Matthew Collins’ Fuck-You Art Writers | Jerry Saltz Tweet Watch | Peter Combe fingers East Bay Bucket List

Facebook and the Serendipitous Captcha

Posted in captchas, Parallels, serendipity, type, WTF? by petercombe on May 11, 2010

The above captcha screenshot certainly applies to the following;

I’ve been asked to submit all US art related happenings to my immigration lawyer re: my Visa application. I mentioned my writing in a book about Parisian artist Marc-Antoine Léval, the lawyer’s response was ‘That would be valuable for the case, submit it, and I’ll see that the government employee assigned to your case receives it as part of the arts related package’. Posted a Facebook link to my blog moments ago regarding the book and chuckled when I had to enter the captcha.
