On a recent vacation to Paris, I couldn’t help but notice advertisementsfor Apple actually pasted on the Louvre. Well, techinically, it’s pastedon the scaffolding around a part of the Louvre. They are two “ThinkDifferent” ads–one with Eiffel and one with Picasso.
Some of the city residents were offended because 1) they put paidadvertisements on a national treasure and 2) they put them there inEnglish!

C’est la vie.

Please, lighten up Paris! ;) They are just ads!
