London’s Leicester Square subway station has been blanketed with ads for Apple’s iPod shuffle. Media Week reports that the “exclusive iPod zone” will include ads on poster sites, ticket gateways and station arches, and appears to be the first time that a company has done such a campaign at the station in seven years. Photos of the ad-covered station can be found here.

Apple is really pushing the Shuffle. I wonder if we’ll get the great guys of LuxPro to take over a train station with their knock-off “Super Shuffle”... LOL! smile

Cool, i live near London, might go take a look. That Toronto example is a bit excessive though, don’t you think? I mean, an advert covering the stairs, and another one covering a bin…

Mmmhmmm… people will REALLY forget what Leicester Square sation is called and call it ‘the ipod stop’.

Right.

Still, would beat the US tourists calling it LIE-CHEST-ER Square.
