Don’t mess with my tuk tuk

Friday, November 11th, 2016

  • While I’ve been in Paris I have photographed well over 100 graffiti covered trucks. I wonder how a truck ends up covered in graffiti in the first place. Do the owners not care? It would seem not.

    This little tuk tuk is an unusual vehicle to see in Paris, but the fact that it’s been allowed to become covered in tags seems a shame to me. As I looked at it thinking to myself that someone really messed with this tuk tuk, an old song popped into my head. I have no idea where my brain dredged it up from, but a ‘swamp blues’ song called ‘Don’t mess with my toot toot‘ ended up in my head for the rest of the day!

    See this very tuk tuk using Google street view. (You can even trace it back to 2014 when it wasn’t so messed up!)
