It’s the next step up from buskers being sponsored by Carling. Now benches are sponsored by mobile phone companies and come complete with headphones, musicians and a security guard. The latest attempt by Nokia to ‘keep it real’ is almost as much fun as London Lite vendors.
Benches in major cities in the UK will be unveiled this month, they will be free to sit on but you will have to listen to the insipid crud that the people at Nokia call music.
