Yecch! Blecch! Ewwwww!
Folgers has placed photos of cups of coffee on vinyl covers on top of steaming manholes in New York City. Copy around the coffee cups says “Hey, City That Never Sleeps. Wake Up.”
Manhole covers keep people from falling into sewers and other smelly, and not infrequently, gross things under the streets.
Frankly, the idea of sewer steam rising from a cup of coffee makes me want to switch to tea.
Yecch! Folger’s Coffee Made From Sewer Water
