I always wish there were more massive happy things (MHT) on the landscape.
I saw these on the Dentsu Dark Matter email this week. Aren't they fantastic? Don't they make you smile?

I love the Angel of the North.
By I like
I don't love it because of the regeneration or regional pride it may represent. I don't love it because of it's artistic qualities. I just love it because Massive Happy Things look really cool from the train.
These crosswords in the Ukraine are amazing.

Recently there's been the Anthony McCall's Column of Cloud. A mile high! A mile!
Isn't it great?
The point I'm trying to make is that this stuff is great just beacause it looks cool. Just because it brings a smile to your face. Just because it brightens up a dull landscape. Massive Happy Things.
I wonder if this I why people always like ghost signs, the unexpected massiveness. The surprise of something artistic on the landscape. Something frivolous.
This is a terrible advert in every way. But in the closing scene - wouldn't it be great if there were more massive happy characters painted on buildings? That would be nice.
Wouldn't the world be a better place with these Massive Happy Things by the side of the motorway?
