Woman Pees On Rug In Hotel’s Racy New Ad Campaign


I’m always peeing myself at the Standard Hotel, especially on their Tuesday night rooftop parties filled with tourists and weirdies.

(Or I should say tourists and other weirdies.)

But I never imagined that the hotel would use the image of a woman actually peeing–on a lovely shag throw carpet–in their new ad campaign.

Their ads are a series of Erwin Wurm shots dealing with the invasion of personal space, called “Instructions on How To Be Politically Incorrect.”

There’s also a photo of someone spitting into someone else’s soup, and one of a guy going for some breast milk!


What a Wurm!

I am utterly horrified, disgusted, appalled, repulsed, and offended, and I’m staying at the Standard real soon!
