Way too good for fast food
It’s no doubt that most people think street art is cool. Otherwise, the McDonald’s in the underground approach to the Louvre wouldn’t copy and paste it on their back wall.
The Revs Cost’s original graffiti may be this one on the New High Line on 23rd Street, New York. Sadly, the major started taking it off last year.

According to Jake on Streetsy, this picture was probably an enlargement of one he took that was published in a Hugo Martinez graffiti book. At first, McDonald’s only paid the book publisher for the picture. But they have come clean and paid Hugo and Jake also.
Apparently, the Louvre is not the only place that McDonald’s is using original graffiti art on their walls. Do you approve?
