Yes ladies and gentlemen, the NYC Subway condom has hit the streets.
The video here is really funny. Look around midway through for the old man with the cane that get’s handed the condom. He doesn’t know what to do with it so he hands it back!! hahah
In midtown today, you might have been offered one as you exited the subway. As you can see in the video above, people don’t really pay attention to what they are being offered. SUBWAYblogger knew right way what it was, and jumped all over it.
Interestingly, the city may have skirted the violation of the MTA’s circle logo trademarks. The MTA was upset that they were going to use the subway line logos (little colored circles) on the condom’s wrapper to make it look “city like.”
On the one SUBWAYblogger received this morning, there were subway looking circles that spell “NYC CONDOM.” However, the actual letters in the circles are not real subway lines. For example, the “C” in Condom is in a yellow circle, but the C subway line is actually blue. So maybe that’s how they got around that issue.
