An exploration into the life and art of billboard bandit Ron English.

Bombarded by relentless advertising in a growing culture of junk, one man-activist/artist Ron English dares to hijack corporate advertising, challenging us to change the sham of reality they've created and reminding us that free speech still lives.Bringing his messages to the masses through billboards and other forms of outdoor marketing, Ron takes traditional advertising hostage, subverting familiar images and words into confrontational art.

Whether attacking a popular fast food chain with a manipulated image of its popular icon emblazed with the words Phat Food, or taking on a tobacco giant and simply covering their logo with the word breathe, Ron implores us to re-evaluate what we see and succumb to it no more.
