Sure, the folks at Toyota and Attik decided to promote their new Want2Bsquare campaign for the Scion using street postings and the like, but it also annoyed some of their target demographic in San Francisco enough that this fella put together his own video telling Toyota off for making a mess.

Still it's no where near as bad at the Aqua Teen Hunger force fiasco out in Boston the other day, and there's no word yet on whether or not the SFPD riot police will be called out to blow up the postings as potential explosive devices, or even clean them up.
