A thirteen-story building printed in sticker-form was plastered on the wall of a construction site in Shenyang, Liaoning on Tuesday. The sticker covers an unfinished building and was pasted on a giant flat iron panel to hide the construction site behind it because “it makes the city look better temporarily,” according to a staff member.
Tacky tricks like this have actually proven to be a relatively effective disguise for areas considered to be eyesores. A town in Shandong province previously constructed a temporary “hiding wall” to cover up dilapidated buildings prior to an inspection by a city official. It’s all fun and games until some idiot thinks the fake scene is real and walks straight into it. Yes, it has happened.
