That's great. Did your fancy machine find that small, black umbrella I left at Grand Central Station last Friday?
Exactly whom is this ad targeting, MTA? Terrorists? Forgetful boobs like me? Nah. This ad was produced for one reason: so's that you could show off your shiny new picker-upper thingumajig. So that us subway/bus riders would nod and say "Ahh, that's why the fare keeps going up despite record MTA budget windfalls—utterly useless 'anti-terror' purchases."
