In 2011, Sony Pictures painted Juzcar, Spain bright blue to promote the release of their new Smurfs 3D movie. Sorry, Sony: a youth collective operating under the name Germen Crew has blown your Spanish Smurftown out of the water.

In 2013, Broken Fingaz–a street art group composed of four young people from Haifa, Israel–took to Querétaro, Mexico in order to cover La Fábrica de Hércules in street art so astounding (and unsettling!) that it has to be seen to be believed.

As incredible is the artistic process’ translation to video–stop motion animation accompanied by the agitated, industrial sound of the Gaslamp Killer–seen in the feature above.
