iPhone 5c lineupPreviously today I highlighted a number of possible theories describing why the iPhone 5c hasn’t marketed as quickly as Apple might have initially really hoped.

One such explanation is that the phone’s shades merely didn’t jibe with customers. While this point is undoubtedly debatable and subject to personal choice, you’ll have a more difficult time asserting that Apple’s iPhone 5c advertising and marketing is anything but unsightly.

While I believe Apple’s iPhone 5c Greetings commercial was top level, the same cannot be stated for a few of the iPhone 5c signboards I’ve seen drifting around Chicago, and in other cities also I would imagine.

I simply found this one the other day on a Chicago ‘L’ system.

And right here’s another suspicious shot identified in London.

And one additional for the trifecta.
