UPDATED: Public art meets advertising: Riffs on Labatt Blue silos

Earlier today, in response to the ongoing transformation of six grain silos into a pack of Labatt Blue tall-boys, I sent out a tongue-in-cheek request on Facebook for someone to reimagine downtown's brutalist NFTA terminal as a sideways box of Cheerios. Because the internet rules, I got back these entries within minutes:

Mickey Harmon, a local artist who delivered the first photoshopped image of the Cheerio-ized NFTA terminal, also produced this reimagining of the brutalist Buffalo City Court as a billboard for Flutie Flakes and Frank's RedHot Original hot sauce:

Other commenters have suggested turning One Seneca Tower into an an enormous Tetris board or a Genny tall-boy. I'll add those to this post if anyone comes through.

UPDATE: Photographer Nicole Cooke came through with this equal parts impressive and terrifying rendering of One Seneca Tower as a giant can of Genny:
