Public Transit Prank of the Day: Your Face on a Bus Ad

You're waiting for the bus, minding your own business, when suddenly who should appear on one of those giant bus shelter advertisements but... you.

It sounds like a fever dream of a lifelong transit commuter, but it really happened to a handful of Norwegians the other day. The explanation? A team of computer whizzes were parked in a van across the street, transforming surreptitious photographs into advertisements and beaming them to a digital screen at the bus stop.

A word of caution: this is a promo developed by AdobeNordic. You will never be able to use Photoshop this quickly or this well.
