I don’t know if they had to reactivate a car on my train today or what, but all the ads were out dated.
The first car I got in had no air conditioning (or passengers for that matter). So I broke the law, and walked between the cars while the train was moving. I know, I’m a bad ass.
In that car, the air was running but it was skinned in Discovery Channel ads for the “new” series, “When We Left Earth.” The ad says it premiers June 8th.
Ummm…it’s July now.
This thing had ads for this show on the ceiling and EVERY available ad position. It was a complete takover.
Maybe this car had been sitting in the yard unused, so they didn’t bother swapping out the ads. Then all of a sudden, it was reactivated due to other cars breaking down. Who knows.
It’s the only thing I could come up with to explain the month and a half old ads.

You obviously haven’t ridden any of the Queens lines.
It’s extremely rare to see an ad that NEW. More common is to see ads for shows that ended 2 years ago.
That show is still on my cable guide (It’s on today). So maybe they will keep the ads until they stop showing the show? (People watch one episode and may want to buy the DVD.)
This ain’t news; I was still seeing Grinch ads on the R in April.
What about the hottest subway station? For me it was the Lexington Avenue–53rd Street on the E train.
