Marketing for Egypt in NYC?

Is this plane 5000 miles off-course?

There are six billion people on earth. It’s not practical to follow the plight of every soul who’s been wronged in one way or another. We try – but we can only accomplish so much in a given 24 hours. Which is why we pick our battles carefully most of the time.

Anyway – I don’t know who Ilan Grapel is – but the first thing I thought when I saw this single-prop banner plane fly up and down the Hudson the other day was “Hey, aren’t they a few thousand miles away from their target demographic?”

This plane has been flying around for the past week displaying random news topics.

Ilan Grapel is an American (dual citizen/served in the Israeli Defense Forces) law school student who has been in prison for months in Egypt. He was taking pictures in Tahrir Square and is being accused of being a spy by authorities. I also have no idea why the banner is being flown here. Strange.

I saw that banner too and just up Ilan Grapel. A spy? Who knows. Just look at Anna Chapman, that great-looking secret agent a la last summer. It’s hard to know what’s what.
