Minneapolis Artist ‘Re-Faces’ Realtor Ads at Bus Stops with Hilarious Results [PHOTOS]

A bus stop bench is somewhat of a foreign concept for those of us in St. Cloud and Central Minnesota, as Metro Bus has deemed standing is the proper way to wait. However, in the Twin Cities, they’re everywhere, and they’re a great way to advertise.

As we all know, the ginormous ego of a realtor is unmatched, and as we’ve seen around Central Minnesota, they’ll take up half a billboard with their ‘stunning’ good looks, in an attempt to comfort you into trustworthiness. In the Cities, they take the opportunity to slap their mugs on just about every bus-stop bench available. Now, of course, it takes a strong person to do this, since the defacing of these bench-adverts is unwaveringly cruel and unusual.

In a flash of brilliance, Minneapolis artist Phil Jones decided to make art out of these sad and lonely two-dimensional pleas for your occupancy. Phil put himself in the ads, replacing the realtor with his own photo. But, he didn’t just take a snapshot, OH NO.

Phil dressed himself up as the realtor with the exact same clothes, hair (thanks to wigs) and pose, then replaced the images. WITH HILARIOUS RESULTS. He’s called it The Faces of Real Estate‘ and here are a few examples.

My favorite part? He even copies the notoriously poor photography realtors are known for, when someone puts a camera in their hand. You can see what I’m talking about by visiting Phil’s art page and poking around.
